Friday quick hits: Lewis says Hawkins still day-to-day; Marvin Jones probable; Tix available

Posted Nov 23, 2012


Marvin Jones

UPDATED: 2:15 p.m.

The Bengals announced Friday that Sunday's 1 p.m game against the Raiders at Paul Brown Stadium isn't a sellout and won't be on local TV for the second straight home game. The next one is a sellout when they host the Cowboys in a 1 p.m. game Sunday, Dec. 9. Tickets for the Raiders can be purchased at the ticket office or via the ticket hotline at 513-621-8383 until 5 p.m. Friday, 9-noon Saturday and the North ticket office opens at 9 a.m. Sunday. Tickets are also available any time by clicking here.

HAWKINS DOUBTFUL; JONES PROBABLE: It looks like wide receiver Andrew Hawkins (knee) isn't going to play for the second straight week Sunday. He hasn't practiced since injuring his knee in last Friday's practice and wasn't on the field for this Friday's session. Also out was tight end Richard Quinn (hamstring). They are both doubtful.

After practice head coach Marvin Lewis reiterated that Hawkins doesn't have a major injury and it is still day-to-day.

Everybody else is probable after practicing full on Friday. It was the first time rookie wide receiver Marvin Jones went full go after spraining his knee Oct. 21 against the Steelers. All signs point to him getting some snaps at X receiver opposite A.J. Green, but maybe not as many as the team had planned for him the night he got hurt against the Steelers. Fellow rookie receiver Mohamed Sanu got most of the snaps at X last Sunday as well as in the slot in a career-high 63 snaps. 

WEATHER CHECK: The National Weather Service in Wilmington, Ohio, is calling for partly sunny skies on Sunday with the kickoff temperature at 42 degrees and a high of 45 at about 3 p.m. No chance of rain with wind out of the southwest at 10-15 miles per hour.

    After three losses by at least three touchdowns to teams in the middle of the AFC playoff chase, the North leading Bengals (9-4-1) play one of those referendum games Monday night (8:30-ESPN Cincinnati’s Channel 5) at Paul Brown Stadium against Peyton Manning’s 11-3 Broncos. A victory does even more than that and qualifies them for the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

    The Bengals got some good news when they returned to the practice field Saturday morning at Paul Brown Stadium and SAM linebacker Emmanuel Lamur was in the stretching line with his helmet. Lamur, who left Sunday’s game in Cleveland with a hamstring injury, was limited and classified as doubtful, but it looks like he’s got a chance to play Monday (8:30 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 5 and ESPN) against Denver.

  • Matchup of the Game: greatness stands between Bengals and playoffs

    By Geoff Hobson - Posted Dec 19, 2014

    Vincent Rey is a smart man. He’s got his degree from Duke University, he’s a scholar athlete from the College Football Hall of Fame, and the Bengals just tapped him as their Man of the Year nominee for this year‘s Walter Payton Award. So he knows it’s a bit backward to declare before Monday night’s game (8:30-Cincinnati’s Channel 5 and ESPN) against one of the greatest quarterbacks who ever lived that the key is shutting down the run. Madness, right? No one dead or alive has thrown more TD passes than Peyton Manning.
