Cincinnati Bengals first-round rookie cornerback Darqueze Dennard is going through the gauntlet of pregame work at Arizona.
May mean very little, but Dennard is going thru conditioning exercises in pregame. Doubt we see him today, but he's running some #Bengals— Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) August 24, 2014
Dennard sat out of practice for the week after sustaining a hip injury last week against the New York Jets.
Head coach Marvin Lewis called Dennard "the best rookie corner I've seen" earlier this month.
"I was told that one of his inadequacies was possibly playing the ball down the field," Lewis said. "And sometimes I think college corners get knocked for that, particularly if they were a physical player in college. But one of the things that's impressed me so much is his ability to track and play the football on vertical throws. If you want to be a great corner at this level, you have to have those capabilities, and he's shown those thus far."
