Bengals coach Zac Taylor said he didn't feel the need to give Joe Mixon any touches tonight, which resulted in the healthy scratch in tonight's preseason loss to the New York Giants. Mixon has been used sparingly throughout the preseason and only appeared in one of the first three exhibition games. With the limited usage, Mixon should be among the freshest on the roster for Cincinnati's season opener at Seattle on Sept. 8.

The battle for the Bengals' starting left guard spot appears to be shaping up. Rookie Michael Jordan (Ohio State) gets the start over John Jerry. Given how Jordan has looked at practice, it appears he's the front-runner to take Clint Boling's old spot. Andre Smith will get the start tonight at LT with Cordy Glenn dealing with concussion-like symptoms.

Offensive lineman Christian Westerman has rejoined the Bengals, the team announced Wednesday. Westerman was placed on the team's left squad/exempt list last week and did not play in the team's presason game at Washington. Coach Zac Taylor said Westerman was dealing with a personal issue but did not disclose any other details. Cincinnati's fifth-round pick in the 2016 draft started training camp as one of the potential options to be the team's starting left guard.

Bengals wide receiver John Ross is expected to start practicing early next week, coach Zac Taylor said Monday. The first-year coach said the team is targeting Sunday as his first practice of the preseason. Ross has been day-to-day with a hamstring injury with all of training camp. Should Ross in a few days, the third-year receiver will have two full weeks of practice before the season opener on Sept. 8 at Seattle. "That's what we are looking for," Taylor said. "If we can get two good weeks of practice out of John, I feel confident he'll be able to play in that game."

The Bengals joined those around the country on Sunday mourning the death of former running back Cedric Benson. Benson died early Sunday morning in Austin in a motorcycle accident. The fourth overall pick in the 2005 draft enjoyed his best NFL years in Cincinnati. All three of his 1,000-yard seasons came during his four-year stint with the Bengals from 2008-11. Benson rushed for 4,176 yards, the fifth-highest total in franchise history. In a statement, team president Mike Brown said the organization was “deeply saddened” by Benson's death. “Cedric was a fine football player for us,” Brown said in statement. “He played a principal role for several years here, including a couple of playoff runs. He was from Texas, and he showed his Texas toughness in leading us to a division championship in just his second season with us.”

Rookie RB Trayveon Williams will likely be out for the remainder of the preseason, according to Bengals coach Zac Taylor. Williams left last week's preseason win over Washington with a foot injury.

Bengals back-up offensive lineman Christian Westerman has been placed on the team's exempt/left squad list, it announced Friday evening. Westerman, a former fifth-round pick who is in the running for a starting guard spot, did not play in the team's preseason game at Washington on Saturday. The Bengals' radio broadcast said Westerman was mulling a potential retirement. Should he leave the game, he would be the second Cincinnati lineman to retire for non-health related reasons. Kent Perkins was waived by the team on Tuesday after he informed the Bengals he intended to retire. The Westerman move frees up a roster spot for Cincinnati. Westerman is eligible to be taken off the exempt list at any time.
