Bengals RT Cedric Ogbuehi Has Toe Injury; Could Miss 2-3 Weeks

Cedric Ogbuehi

An already wounded Bengals offense suffered another blow as a league source confirmed to Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer that starting right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi suffered a toe injury, which is expected to keep him off the field for two to three weeks.

The second-year tackle joins tight ends Tyler Eifert (ankle) and Tyler Kroft (knee) as players who are trying to recover from injuries in time to open the season at the New York Jets on Sept. 11.

Ogbuehi was in good spirits after playing 39 snaps against the Minnesota Vikings in the Bengals’ preseason opener on Friday, a total that tied for a team-high on offense.

“I thought it went well. I felt good,” Ogbuehi said after the game. “I think I played well. Of course there are things here and there you can fix, but I think overall it was a pretty good performance.”

It is unclear when he suffered the injury.

Bengals DT Andrew Billings Has Surgery on His Right Knee

Andrew Billings

Bengals defensive tackle Andrew Billings underwent surgery on his right knee on Monday, Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. He was taken off on a cart during Wednesday’s practice against the Vikings.

Reports indicate the surgery revealed a torn meniscus and expectations are he’s out indefinitely and could miss the entire season, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The Bengals were waiting for the surgery to gain a clearer view of the extent of the damage.

Billings, the fourth-round pick out of Baylor, expected to provide depth as a run stopper in the back of the defensive line room. Fortunately for the Bengals, they are already deep at the position.

Report: Bengals First-Round Pick CB William Jackson Has a Torn Pec

William Jackson

The Bengals got potential awful news on Tuesday, as according to Pro Football Talk, the teams’ first-round pick, CB William Jackson, has a torn pec, an injury that sounds like he could miss most of, if not all of the season.

Jackson inked his rookie deal with the Bengals back in June, a deal that pays him $9,705,648 with an average of $2,426,412 per year.

He was the 24th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, and the former Houston Cougars cornerback was regarded as one of the two or three best cornerback prospects in this draft.

In 2015 Jackson led the NCAA and set a school record for pass breakups in 2015 with 23. He also added five interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns.

Bengals Ink H-Back Ryan Hewitt to a Three-Year Extension

Ryan Hewitt

The Bengals and H-back Ryan Hewitt have agreed to a three-year contract extension, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

This deal gives Hewitt new money for this season and will keep him under contract through the 2019 campaign.

According to spotrac.com, Hewitt was slated to make $600,000 off his original three-year, $1.5 million rookie deal this season.

The two parties have been working toward a deal since the spring. Hewitt was one of handful of players targeted for an extension by the team and continues the organization’s recent track record of extending college free agents who become key contributors after two seasons. Vontaze Burfict signed an extension in the summer of 2014 after appearing in all 32 games following his signing out of Arizona State in 2012.

The 25-year-old would have been a restricted free agent in 2017, which would have given the Bengals some control over his status should he have reached that point. The Bengals could have put a right of first refusal on any contract offered to Hewitt all the way to putting first and second round draft tenders on him. That means a different team would have to give up that pick in order to sign Hewitt.

Hewitt is a big part of this team in terms of what he can do, and don’t forget, the Bengals at home against the Giants in preseason action August 14th, check out a great Ladbrokes promotional code to bet the cats for that game and all season long.

Former Bengals Safety Taylor Mays Facing an Even Longer Suspension

Taylor Mays

The Bengals over the weekend said ‘so long’ to safety Taylor Mays, and today there’s news as to why that roster decision took place as training camp gets closer for the cats.

It came out in March that Mays was going to be suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Now it looks like if another team is going to take a chance on him, that team will have to wait half the season for his services, making him more likely a later season pickup.
