The Bengals firmed up their preseason schedule Thursday with two Paul Brown Stadium games in six days.
They play a pair of 7:35 p.m. starts on Sunday, Aug. 17 against the Lions and Saturday, Aug. 23 against the Saints before finishing the preseason with their third game in 11 days at the Colts' new stadium on Thursday, Aug. 28 at 7 p.m.
The 17th will be busy on the riverfront. The Reds finish a homestand with the Cardinals in a 1:15 p.m. game at Great American Ball Park.
The opener had already beern announced, an 8 p.m. Monday game on ESPN Aug. 11 in Green Bay.
Still no word on linebacker David Pollack's plans. The team has yet to make an announcement about an announcement and agent Tom Condon can't be reached for comment. After two media sessions in the locker room this offseason, there has been no indication that he is working out with the team.
With the Bengals reportedly hosting Oklahoma wide receiver Malcolm Kelly following Wednesday's workout, word comes that Kelly is upset after clocking 4.68 seconds in the 40-yard dash on Field Turf.
According to The Oklahoman, Kelly said he was not told the Pro Day workout had been moved from an Astroturf. Kelly told the paper he had been preparing for a month to run on Astroturf and was running under 4.50 seconds. The newspaper also reported that offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski was in attendance.
Wide receiver has become a position of interest with the Bengals now that Chris Henry and Tab Perry aren't on the roster. But are they interested enough to spend the ninth pick on it?
