There are two constants in the life of the Cincinnati Bengals at the beginning of any football season. Mock turtle soup and the quest for stability at the quarterback position and on Tuesday Mike Brown, heading into his 24th season as the Bengals president, one season longer than his dad had the job, toasted the stability of Andy Dalton.
Left tackle Andrew Whitworth was a surprise addition to the active/physically unable to perform list (PUP) when the Bengals started training camp Thursday with what appears to be a minor calf strain. Whitworth apparently picked up the nick in Wednesday’s conditioning test.
With training camp opening on the Paul Brown Stadium practice fields Thursday at 3 p.m., get to know the Bengals' best player a little bit better as A.J. Green prepares for marriage and a new season.
Bengals starting tight end Jermaine Gresham won’t begin training camp on the field Thursday after the Bengals put him on the active/physically unable to perform list (PUP) Wednesday with a back issue.
If quarterback Andy Dalton is the face of the offense, then that must make Pro Bowl WILL linebacker Vontaze Burfict the face of the Bengals defense at the tender age of 23. He has to be since new defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is using him as an example of getting into the playbook.
