While a few Bengals are getting their first practice of training camp under their belt today, some others are sitting today out.
Quarterback Logan Woodside, tight end Tyler Kroft and defensive tackle Chris Baker are not practicing on the first day of full pads.
No Logan Woodside, Rod Taylor, Tyler Eifert, Vontaze Burfict, Hewitt, Chris Baker, Kraft, Sojourn Shelton, Brandon Bell, Tony McRae— Katherine Terrell (@Kat_Terrell) July 29, 2018
Woodside has been neglected of snaps through the first days of training camp, despite neither Matt Barkley or Jeff Driskel doing anything special to keep him out of the competition.
Now, he’s not even going to practice. Something is keeping him out of the huddle. Issues still could be stemming from the DUI he was charged for last month, but there’s no way to be sure.
Baker may have been given a veterans day off as there has been no news of him suffering an injury as of yet. He has plenty of young competition behind him though so the more he’s not out there, the worse for him.
Kroft was seen in his jersey but with no pads on, he’s likely going to be working on the side field. The tight end is still nursing a hip/groin injury. In addition, h-back Ryan Hewitt is also sidelined.
After injuring his hand at the conclusion of yesterday’s practice, cornerback Sojourn Shelton now has a cast protecting his injury. With luck, he’ll be back on the field after a short recovery now that the team welcomes back two members of the secondary to the practice field in cornerback Davontae Harris and safety Tyrice Beverette.
Tony McRae is still nursing his ankle after getting rolled over by Josh Malone on Friday.
