Day Two of the Bengals’ mandatory minicamp is over with. Here’s what we learned.

We already know that Andre Smith was not in attendance, and will face fines. He’s expected to return from “personal issues” later this week, and early next week at the latest.

Head coach Marvin Lewis made a point to state his approval of James Harrison’s progress as well, stating, “James has done great. It’s been fun. It’s what I expected.”

Harrison is in the process of learning a new defense, as he makes the switch from a 3-4 scheme that was run in Pittsburgh. The coaching staff, though, has held to it’s original confidence in Harrison, and his steady work ethic has seemed to help him thus far.

Adam “Pacman” Jones was present today, following his arrest on accusation of hitting a 36-year old woman at outside of a bar. His practice was limited, as he is still dealing with a sore calf muscle that he pulled on the first day pf OTAs.

The offense looked a little off track as it ran it’s session. Andy Dalton and Josh Johnson each fumbled the football in exchanges, and the practice also saw rare drops from Tyler Eifert and Mohamed Sanu.

However, Sanu made up for it with a highlight catch in traffic, and Dalton hit A.J. Green on a pretty 50-yard fade route at the start of practice.
