Bengals running backs Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard will be available to play in tomorrow night’s preseason game at the Washington Redskins. Neither played in the opening loss against the Chiefs. The Bengals rushed for just 21 yards on 12 carries.
Head coach Zac Taylor said linebacker Carl Lawson would be held out, but should play in the third game. Lawson has been rehabbing from a knee injury that ended his season last year after eight games.
Backup quarterback Jeff Driskel lined up at wide receiver during some drills.
Former Buckeye offensive lineman Michael Jordan continues to impress coaches at the Cincinnati Bengals training camp.
Jordan has been taking snaps with the first-team offense this week, and his coaches are optimistic but cautious. Offensive line coach Jim Turner told reporters that Jordan being with the first-team is not out of the ordinary but then added he is developing much quicker than anyone expected for a rookie.
Jordan was taken by the Bengals in the fourth round of this year’s draft with the 136th pick.
