In the Bengalsí 34-23 victory over the Ravens [url=]Womens Tyler Boyd Jersey[/url] , Joe Mixon began the running backsí tale of woe when he slightly tore a knee meniscus and is out for an unspecified amount of time after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. Then in the next practice on Monday Tra Carson pulled his hamstring and while he may return to the Bengals when he gets healthy in a month or so, the Bengals had to waive him injured to make room for somebody that can play Sunday (1 p.m.-Cincinnatiís Channel 12) if needed in Carolina.Notebook: Mixon rehabs; Rawls re-bootsBut when he does return heís going to have some skins on the wall for head coach Marvin Lewis and his teammates to respect as a gamer. His fourth-quarter performance last Thursday night that helped fend off the Ravens in prime time on a knee that went under the knife less than 48 hours later is taking its place in Bengals lore.Bengals Shuffle Injured Backs; Rawls Signed as Carson ShelvedJoe Mixon worked in the weight room with a sleeve covering the knee that had arthroscopic surgery on Saturday. By lunch time Giovani Bernardís backups were also 5-9 in rookie Mark Walton and the freshly-signed Rawls, both of whom have yet to play since the preseason.NFL Week 3 odds, picks: Bucs throttle hapless Steelers, Bengals beat Panthers to go to 3-0In other games, the Browns continue their search for a win, the Bills are just trying to keep from getting blown out (and having somebody retire at halftime), the Bengals are looking to get to 3-0 (!), while the Rams continue to make their case for the NFL's most complete team.Cincinnati Bengals to be without two starters vs. PanthersThe Cincinnati Bengals are off to about as good of a start as they could hope for in terms of the results, but the same cannot be said for the health of the team. Cincinnati (2-0) travels to face the Carolina Panthers (1-1) on Sunday and will be using some backups at key positions in an offense that has been rolling through the first two games.Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon says he has 'slight tear' of meniscusBengals running back Joe Mixon, who had a procedure Saturday to remove loose particles in his knee, said he will return from a knee injury when he feels comfortable. Mixon said he had a "slight tear" in his meniscus, but he feels great and has been walking around. The procedure to repair the knee took about an hour, he said.4 things to know about new Bengals RB Thomas RawlsWith RB Joe Mixon set to miss some time due to his knee injury and subsequent surgery, the Cincinnati Bengals waltzed out and signed former Seahawks and Jets RB Thomas Rawls. Many of the Bengals faithful will remember Rawls as the man who gashed us for 169 yards in the OT win against the Seahawks back in 2015. That season, he ran for 830 yards on 147 carries. He only started 7 games and played in 13.Marvin Lewis: Bengals want to "clone" players like Luke KuechlyA native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Kuechly's roots run deep through the area. Growing up in Evendale [url=][/url] , a suburb of Cincinnati, Kuechly was a star defensive player at St. Xavier High School before going on to great things away from home with the Boston College Eagles and, eventually, the Panthers. Given his history in the area, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has had his eyes on Kuechly for a long time.Cincinnati Bengals: Billy Price to miss time with foot injuryCincinnati Bengals rookie center Billy Price is out at least two weeks with a foot injury. Price said his injury, which occurred during Thursdayís win against Baltimore, was just diagnosed Wednesday morning and he is required to wear a boot full-time but he does not need surgery.Random BytesJon Gruden Says 'It's Hard to Find a Great Pass-Rusher' in Raiders PresserThe Oakland Raiders have struggled with their pass rush in the first two games, totaling only two sacks during the 0-2 start. Head coach Jon Gruden ironically blamed the quality of personnel on the roster.Mike Tomlin Says He Disciplined Antonio Brown for Skipping Steelers MeetingsPittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed he disciplined wide receiver Antonio Brown for failing to show up to the team's facility Monday following a 42-37 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. "He and I met yesterday for an extended period of time," Tomlin said Wednesday, according to's Jeremy Fowler. "I'll leave the nature of that conversation between us. There was discipline involved for his missed meeting on Monday."Vontae Davis Explains Abrupt Retirement from Bills: 'Leaving Was Therapeutic'"Leaving was therapeutic, bro. I left everything the league wanted me to be, playing for my teammates while injured, the gladiator mentality, it all just popped. And when it popped, I just wanted to leave it all behind. So that's why I don't care what people say. That experience was personal and not meant for anyone else to understand. It was me cold turkey leaving behind an identity that I carried with me for so long."Report: Maroon 5 to Perform 2019 Super Bowl Halftime ShowE! News' Baker Machado reported in 2015 that the band "had extensive talks" about playing Super Bowl 50's halftime show and was the "front-runner for the gig." The honor eventually fell to the trio of Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars.Mike Freeman's 10-Point Stance: Kirk Cousins Finally Ready to 'Tear Apart' NFLCoaches who have watched Cousins from afar, however, have long felt differently. To them [url=][/url] , Cousins was a physically gifted player in a poor organization that didn't know how to surround him with talent on either side of the ball.NFL Rookies Already Looking Like BustsThe term "bust" is one of the most negative labels that can be slapped on an NFL player. Usually given to early-round draft picks, it means not only did a player fail to meet expectations, but he massively underperformed in his career.Can Kevin Huber continue to prove reliable for the Bengals in his 10th NFL season? If there is one constantly-performing mainstay of the Cincinnati Bengals in the Marvin Lewis era, itís in their special teams unit. Yes, there have been some sporadic issues at long snapper and place kickers missing some big attempts, but some of the best statistical performances from special teamers have come under Darrin Simmonsí watch. Punter Kevin Huber is one of those stalwarts under Simmons and has had a good career with the Bengals since joining them in the class of 2009. It appears as if he has a chance to go down as one of the best players in his position to ever play for the Bengals, as he recently signed a three-year deal with the team. Comings and goings:Departures: NoneAdditions: NoneThe cast:Starter: Kevin HuberBackups: ???Huber made the Pro Bowl 2014 and has been solid since joining the team back in 2009. Despite being on the Bengals two fewer years than Lee Johnson, Huber is nipping at his heels for most of the franchise punting record. As of now, the team does not have another punter designated on the roster posted on the official website. That doesnít mean they wonít add another leg soon, but Huber should be the guy. 2018 outlook:Unless Huber has some major issues or gets hurt in camp, itís definitely his job to lose. The team might bring in another leg to give some rest to the veteran, but as of now, Huber is the only true punter on the roster. Given his production, contract and previous Pro Bowl berth, No. 10 will be using his left leg on the Bengalsí special teams unit in 2018.
