Bernard atop Bengals' lengthy injury report
By Coley Harvey
CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Bengals' injury report Thursday afternoon was the team's longest of the young season, and included three names that were absent on the report released the day before -- one of which belongs to a rookie running back who took the NFL by storm Monday night with his two-touchdown effort against Pittsburgh.
Giovani Bernard, the first-year player out of North Carolina, headlined the list of newly injured Bengals. Less than four days after rumbling for a 7-yard touchdown run and weaving around defenders on his 27-yard touchdown reception, Bernard was limited in practices due to a hamstring injury.
Also making the injury report was receiver Marvin Jones, who was kept out of the workout entirely because of a foot injury. The missed practice was the first of the regular season for the second-year player from Cal. So far this season, he has caught four passes for 42 yards.
Cincinnati hosts Green Bay at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
