The grant helped install artificial stadium turf, new goal posts and asphalt in necessary areas at the Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School stadium. This allows for additional use of the field for more football games, as well as other sporting events, physical education classes and band usage.

The grant was the latest in an ongoing program in which the Bengals and the NFL have coordinated to distribute $1.5 million to local schools for new football fields. Other schools include Clinton-Massie High School, Covington Catholic High School, Lockland High School, Oak Hills High School, Taylor High School, Withrow University High School and cheap jerseys and Midway Elementary School.

“The news of Darian’s passing is tragic to the entire Bengals organization, and also I know to his colleagues with Hamilton County,” said Bengals public relations director Jack Brennan.

“Darian was not only a very hard worker, someone who had earned high honors for his work, he was a great individual — enthusiastic, helpful, fun to be around. He will be missed in a very personal sense as well as a professional one. He had been with the County in the PBS groundskeeper position for more than 10 years. Our sympathy goes out to Darian’s family and to his many friends.”jersey

Tyler Eifert (ankle) and Tyler Kroft (knee) said they would try to jog outside after running on various apparatus indoors. No timetable has been set at they try to return as close as they can to the Sept. 11 opener in New Jersey against the Jets, but Eifert says the ankle he injured in the Pro Bowl “feels pretty good,” and he says he has had no setbacks in his return from May surgery.

“I’m not ready to practice. I’m not ready for change of direction,” Eifert said before practice. “But I’m doing multiple treatments a day and doing lifting and conditioning multiple times a day. I try to do as much as I possibly can so when I’m ready to play I’m in shape.”

Before a standing room-only crowd of about 6,300 LaFell lined up with the first team and wide receivers coach James Urban said they’ll start monitoring to see if he’ll be able to handle starting duties with the injury in the Sept. 11 opener.

“That’s why we’re doing it now to see how things go,” said Urban after practice. “Tomorrow I would expect him to be considerably better as far as alignment, assignment, and get-off and shaking off the dust of running routes again. I saw a little bit of rust he has to shake off. Hopefully he’ll be better tomorrow than he was today.”

“I feel like I’m a coach on the defense. I know all the spots, especially linebackers,” Burfict said. “If somebody messes up, either Coach G or me is the first one to correct it on the sidelines. I’m trying to be like an assistant coach … If he’s talking to the safeties, I’m talking to the linebackers. Sometimes I talk to the D-line. It’s just a chain reaction.”

That’s what happened on the sidelines in last Friday night’s pre-season opener at Paul Brown Stadium against Zimmer’s Vikings. With linebackers coach Jim Haslett and assistant David Lippincott in the coaches booth, Burfict helped out with young guys like the last two third-round picks, Nick Vigil and P.J. Dawson, while wielding an iPad.

After the Bengals finished up their last public session of training camp in a Tuesday morning walk-through on the Paul Brown Stadium field before a group of season ticket holders, head coach Marvin Lewis indicated he doesn’t expect injured starters Cedric Ogbuehi and Brandon LaFell to miss the Sept. 11 regular-season opener in New Jersey against the Jets.

LaFell, a seven-year veteran wide receiver who reportedly has ligament damage in his right hand, went through individual drills Monday after not playing Friday night in the pre-season opener against the Vikings. Lewis didn’t rule out LaFell for the next one, Thursday night (7:30-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) in Detroit.
