Update: New LB to get work

Updated: 3:55 p.m.



One example of the true athleticism of the Bengals tackles:

During warmups in Paul Brown Stadium before Saturday's practice, guys who usually don't get a chance to catch passes got a chance to run some routes. At the end of the drill, Levi Jones told Andrew Whitworth, "I got you Whit," and shotputted a ball about 30 yards down the middle to the 6-7, 340-pound Whitworth and Whitworth gathered it on the run.

Jones continues to back up Whitworth at left tackle, but says he feels like he can go on his rehabbed knee anywhere at anytime Monday night. Lewis has given indications Jones will work second team against the Falcons.


It looks like the newest Bengal, Lemar Marshall, is going to get plenty of work in his debut. For the second straight day Saturday, starting strong side linebacker Rashad Jeanty didn't work with a calf problem and Marvin Lewis says he won't play Monday. Jeanty has been saying he'll be ready for the opener.


Cornerback Brandon Williams returned to practice Saturday after about a week's absence. After a day off, safety Madieu Williams returned. Safety Herana-Daze Jones, who hurt his knee last Saturday night, doesn't appear to have a major injury but hasn't worked this week. Same with defensive end Robert Geathers (ribs). Rookie linebacker Earl Everett also sat out Saturday.

Also, wide receiver Glenn Holt (hamstring) doesn't figure to play Monday but he does in the Aug. 31 preseason finale.


One question looming is if the Bengals will let wide receiver Tab Perry return kicks and/or punts in the wake of his hip injury and given he'll most likely be the third wide receiver. But they will let him catch both in practice.


The Lakota Tomahawks youth football team paid a visit early in Saturday's practice.
