Joe D's Bengals Camp Diary: July 26


GREEN UPDATE: The big talker on day two of Bengals training camp is the health of A.J. Green.  The wide receiver did confirm he had an MRI after injuring his knee during the first camp practice on Thursday.  Green said the MRI showed there is no structural damage to the knee, but couldn't put a timetable on how many days he might miss.

Marvin Lewis called Green's injury a knee bruise, both internally and externally, and said the third year wide receiver will likely at least miss the weekend of practices.  Both Lewis and Green seem confident the injury is nothing serious.

Green says he won't change the way he practices because of the injury.  Says he'll continue to approach every practice rep and every ball thrown his way like it's a game.

Cornerback Terence Newman was guarding Green on the play Thursday.  Newman said he didn't see it happen because he was focused on the football, but said the following about the aftermath:

"That's one of those guys that if he threw up on the sideline, I'm nervous, Now, I'm seeing him grab his knee, so I'm really nervous.  Sounds like he's going to be good, though."

GREEN-ELLIS ON HERNANDEZ: Benjarvus Green-Ellis, who played 4 seasons in New England, talked a bit about the situation surrounding Aaron Hernandez.  The Bengals running back called the news of Hernandez's murder accusation "shocking", but wanted to focus his comments on his sympathy to the victim and the victim's family. 

MARVIN: Marvin Lewis conducted his press conference with a five member NFL Films crew filming for Hard Knocks.  One of the producers made a few notes when Lewis opened up a bit on Andy Dalton and his progression. 

PRACTICE: Practice is open to the public this afternoon 3pm-5pm on the practice fields.  You can hear sound checks for the Macy's Music Festival inside of Paul Brown Stadium from the locker room, I'm sure you'll be able to hear it from the fields as well.
