Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden has seen enough to the point he w ants to see more of Bernard, and that may be happening sooner rather than later:

“I think they are going to get more to 50/50 sooner than later, probably,” Gruden said on Thursday. ”We are obviously very happy with our running back situation the way it is. Honestly if Gio is in the game, I am content. If BenJarvus is in the game, I’m fine with either one of them in there. I don’t have a problem.”

Through the first two games, Green-Ellis has 36 carries for 100 yards, while the rookie Bernard has just 12 carries for 60 yards (5 ypc). Against the high-scoring Green Bay Packers offense, the Bengals likely need to score more than the 20 & 24 points they’ve scored in the first two games, and Gio has shown the Bengals operate more effectively on offense when he’s in the game.
