Bengals Training Camp: The Best from Day 2

 

 

Taylor Mays continued to be the starting safety opposite Reggie Nelson, though he struggled in coverage and got burned deep several times. MAys has to improve his coverage ability, or he’ll be no different then what Chris Crocker has been the past few years; a hard-hitting safety who is a good blitzer, but struggles to cover air, let alone NFL receivers.

 

Terence Newman and Leon Hall continued to be the first-team cornerbacks. Jason Allen and Adam Jones were second-team. Jason Allen got the majority of reps at the nickel-corner spot.

 

Armon Binns and A.J. Green lined up with the first-team offense. Andrew Hawkins got a lot of snaps as the third receiver in three-receiver sets. Baby-Hawk performed well in the limited reps he got.

 

After getting snaps with the first-team offense on Friday, Brandon Tate was limited in practice today and was essentially held out of practice with what appeared to be an undisclosed injury. Tate did say he was going to see the team trainers after practice, and we’ll update you if any news comes out tonight.

 

WR Jordan Shipley, CB Nate Clements, DT Pat Sims, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, DE Robert Geathers, and K Mike Nugent were all absent from practice as they recover from various injuries. Shipley is still awaiting clearance to practice after recovering from an ACL tear last season.

 

Nate Clements is recovering from a strained abdomen, and his return date is unknown. Mike Nugent and Pat Sims are dealing with minor hamstring issues and should also return to practice soon. DE Robert Geathers  tweaked his knee in Friday’s first practice and was a no-go today, but it appears he should return within a week.

 

With the Nuge out, Thomas Weber took over kicking duties, and was 5 of 6, with his only miss from 30 yards, and the rest were good from 26, 32, 36, 39, and 44.

 

Andrew Hawkins, Marvin Jones, Bernard Scott, Cedric Peerman, Taveon Rogers, and Aaron Brown took snaps at the kick returner spot, but no one in particular really stood out.
