INCREDIBLE PHOTO: This Cincinnati Bengals fan isn’t messing around

Cincinnati Bengals shoot up preseason Power Rankings, check in at No. 12

Every team has played two games. Most of the starters have seen enough action to provide a sense of what a team has to offer. And the picture is becoming clearer around the league. Yes, it’s dangerous to put too much stock in preseason games. But it’s also foolish to ignore information that can be very valuable, which is what exhibitions provide to the keen observer. With that...

Jeremy Hill Tweets "I'm Fine" After Leaving Game With Shoulder Injury

Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill left Saturday's preseason game with a right shoulder injury, but tweeted "I'm fine" late Saturday night. Fantasy Spin: Hill is expected to fill the BenJarvus Green-Ellis role this season, but Giovani Bernard is going to see a bump in touches and could also get goal-line carries so Hills value will be limited to the flex spot.
