Bengals and Saints to Hold Joint Practices


The Bengals will hold two joint practices with the New Orleans Saints on Thursday, Aug. 16 at the Paul Brown Stadium practice fields. As is the case with all practices following the close of training camp, the practices will not be open to the public. The practices will be open to media, with start times of 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

“We’re happy for the chance to add these practices,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. “This is not a contact scrimmage, since we play the Saints two days later, but we’re looking forward to some good, full-speed competitive work against a fine football team.”

To accommodate the joint practices, the Bengals will break training camp at Georgetown (Ky.) College after morning practice on Aug. 15, rather than on the morning of Aug. 16 as originally scheduled. The Aug. 15 practice at training camp will be open to the public and media, but the practice time on that day has been changed to 9-11 a.m. from the originally announced afternoon time. On Fri., Aug. 17, the Bengals and Saints will hold separate practices on the game turf inside Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals’ Aug. 17 practice will be closed to the public and media.

The Bengals and Saints will play the second 2007 preseason game for both teams on Sat., Aug. 18 at PBS.

The Bengals today made the following roster moves:
Signed rookie HB Curtis Brown of Brigham Young. Brown (6-0, 205) entered the NFL in May as a college free agent signee by Oakland. He was released by the Raiders in July.

Waived (injured) rookie HB Dan Burks of Alabama-Birmingham. Burks suffered an elbow injury last Friday during the team’s Intrasquad Scrimmage. He will revert to the Bengals’ Reserve/Injured list if he clears waivers tomorrow.
