Cincinnati duo could do some damage

When a Pro Bowl season is still considered a "disappointment," you know you are a major fantasy stud. Will A.J. Green reach his own lofty standards, and will another Bengal receiver emerge as a fantasy weapon? Fantasy sleepers and stars (Insider)

Care to try a carrier pigeon?

The Bengals have to get down to their 53-man roster limit by 4 p.m. ET Saturday. If they plan to cut LB Chris Carter, well, a call to let him know won't do the trick -- he plans to turn off his phone. "If you're going to cut me, you have to come find me," he says. A life-changing weekend

Bengals DT Devon Still said he isn't nervous as he awaits his fate on Cincinnati's roster. "If I didn't go through what I went through last year, I'd have a tough time. I've had to sit and wait through worse stuff than this."

After Thursday night's win in Indy, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis praised his backup defenders for the turnovers they generated on short fields. He also liked QB AJ McCarron's poise: "We're very comfortable with where he is right now."

After nine series in Cincinnati's preseason finale at Indianapolis on Thursday, QB AJ McCarron had a relatively mixed line. He left just before the fourth quarter after going 15-for-28 for 219 yards. He also was sacked four times and led two FG drives.

With a 6-0 lead at halftime, Marvin Lewis had reason to be pleased Thursday night at Indianapolis: Anytime they don't score on you, I guess you have to say it was a pretty good half."

The Bengals weren't very balanced offensively in the first half of Thursday's preseason finale at Indianapolis. They rushed for only 29 yards compared to the 184 AJ McCarron passed for. After getting the start, the QB was 13-for-22 in the half, leading a pair of FG drives.

Just after the first-half two-minute warning in Thursday's preseason finale at Indianapolis, Bengals DT Devon Still ripped by a guard and pushed Colts QB Bryan Bennett hard to the ground. But the sack was waved off because a Bengals LB lined up offsides.

Wrote Thursday morning that LB P.J. Dawson was one of the players I was most interested in watching in Cincinnati's preseason finale. So far, just before halftime, he's lived up to my expectations. Three tackles including a sack on an A-gap blitz.

Backup Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron started for Andy Dalton in Cincy's preseason finale at Indianapolis on Thursday. He went 3-for-5 for 40 yards with a well-placed 18-yard pass to Greg Little on his opening drive. The series ended on a fourth-down sack.

List of Bengals not expected to play (expect a lot more): Brandon Ghee, Leon Hall, Rex Burkhead, Vontaze Burficf, Emmanuel Lamur and Michael Johnson

About an hour and a half before kickoff in Indianapolis, it looked as if the Bengals' offensive starters we're going through a modified practice. A lone uptempo drive got several sweating through their shirts. It's likely the only action they'll see tonight.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Welcome to Indianapolis, where the Bengals are about to face the Colts in the preseason finale. I'll be using this vantage point to see how backups like QB AJ McCarron, RBs James Wilder Jr. and Terrell Watson, and DT Devon Still fare.

What is holding Green back?

A.J. Green deserves to be ranked higher on ESPN's list of #NFLRANK receivers. Green is the only top-10 wideout to not catch passes from a top-13 quarterback. Andy Dalton might be what is holding A.J. back from realizing his true potential. Top-10 debate (Insider)
