The Bengals will conduct joint practices with the New York Giants on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 11-12, leading up to the preseason opening game for each team, on Fri., Aug. 14 at Paul Brown Stadium.
The joint practices will be held on the PBS practice fields and will be open to the public, as part of the Bengals' 2015 Training Camp.
"It's great that we were able to make this work with Coach (Tom) Coughlin and the Giants," said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. "It's not something we've been able to do every year with another team, but our past experience with it has been good. It helps our guys stay sharp and focused as we move through the preseason. You put yourself on the field with another team and let the competitive juices flow a little bit."
The Bengals hosted the New Orleans Saints for joint practices prior to a 2007 preseason meeting at Paul Brown Stadium, and in 2013, the Bengals practiced two days in Atlanta with the Falcons leading up to a preseason game at the Georgia Dome.
Timing and other details regarding the practices with the Giants are yet to be finalized.
The Bengals will hold Training Camp in Cincinnati for the fourth straight year, with numerous other practices also open to the public between late July and mid-August. A full training camp daily schedule will be released in early July.
