Bengals Twitter reactions to Monday’s training camp practice

A.J. Green, John Ross and Tee Higgins had some positive updates, while Jordan Evans did not have such a great day.

Monday was the last day of practice before the Bengal’s day off.

The wide receivers seemed to take a collective step forward on Monday. Carlos Dunlap had a great day on Sunday, and got the day off along with some other veterans.

While the media was only able to take a few photos and videos of practice, there is enough on Twitter to keep Bengals fans up to date.

Veterans rest

Joe Mixon, Carl Lawson, and Carlos Dunlap had the day off on Monday.

We later found out that Dunlap was dealing with a “minor injury.”

A.J. Green’s progress

Last year, A.J. Green was injured on the first day of training camp. For the rest of camp, and during the season, it seemed like Green was always getting close to returning until he was placed on injured reserve.

It’s understandable if Bengals fans were getting more nervous every day that Green wears a t-shirt during practice.

But on Monday, he actually participated in some drills on the rehab field, which is more progress than he ever made last season.

John Ross is back with the first team

Even though John Ross returned on Sunday, he’s getting more work with the first team. He clearly worked hard while he was away, and it’s paying off during practice.

Speaking of Tee Higgins...

Joe Burrow should have plenty of amazing receivers to throw to. Tee Higgins had a great practice on Monday.

It seems like the receivers are taking turns impressing everyone, and Monday was Higgins’ day.

Towards the end of practice, Higgins hamstring gave him some trouble.

Auden Tate still looks good

All Auden Tate does is make ridiculous catches, and the Bengals only used a seventh-round pick on him.

Darius Phillips looks like starter material

Without Trae Waynes, Darius Phillips is the next man up. He’s known as a playmaker, and he is showing that in full during training camp.

Jordan Evans carted off

Linebacker Jordan Evans suffered a leg injury during a 1-on-1 drill and had to be carted off.

This is a tough break for Evans, since he was on the fringe of the roster. He’s the only linebacker left on the team that was brought in by Marvin Lewis, so he needed a great training camp to keep his roster spot.

Your daily Joe Burrow update

His best throw was to DeMarkus Lodge, who the Bengals signed to the practice squad last season.

Also, Joe Burrow will always look good in Bengals’ colors.
