As Saturday’s practice came to a close before 1,950 at Paul Brown Stadium, Adam Jones walked over to the kneeling Dre Kirkpatrick on the sidelines and told his fellow starting cornerback, “Good practice today.”

And he could have been talking to most of the DBs as they found their legs and had a much better second practice than first. Jones is good most of the time and Kirkpatrick came out of the gate early Saturday with a pick-six in one-on-one. But Smith, a second-year special teamer trying to hold off seventh-rounder Clayton Fejedelem and veteran Jimmy Wilson to keep his job, gets the nod in a close call over Kirkpatrick.

Eifert says he’s in the weight room putting muscle on his calf and quad, as well as moving the ankle when it is out of the boot for exercises. He expects the rehab to speed up once the boot comes off next week, but he’s staying away from any predictions of when he’ll return.jersey

There may be one good thing to come out of it. After spending all last offseason in rehab with his fellow Indiana native, Bengals rehab chief Nick Cosgray, coming back from elbow and shoulder injuries, Eifert led all tight ends on the planet with 13 touchdowns.

“If I can’t do it, I’m just going to walk away. I want to do it for 12. If I sign a two-year deal (after his current extension gets him to nine years), I’ll be gone. Eleven will be fine if my body’s not holding up. Eleven would be great. My goal is 12 to 15. We’ll see. I’ll be 31 (in his ninth year), so I think I can go three or four more years after that.”

He does have some unfinished business. After four seasons of struggling in the post-season, Green put together his best post-season game back in January against the Steelers with five catches for 71 yards. And he was placed in the pantheon when his leaping 25-yard TD catch at the goal line capped a 16-0 run and gave the Bengals a 16-15 lead with 1:50 left in the game.

After starting middle linebacker Rey Maualuga didn’t practice during the spring, the Bengals placed him on the active/no-football injury list. That means Maualuga suffered an injury while not at Paul Brown Stadium. It’s unknown what the injury is, but indications are they expect him to return fairly quickly, maybe as soon as Friday’s first practice at 3 p.m. on the fields adjacent to PBS. He still counts against the 90-man roster limit and can return once he’s cleared medically.

Same with tight end Tyler Eifert (ankle), wide receiver James Wright (knee), and defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee). As expected, they were all put on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list with injuries they received in games.

The award has been given annually by the Bengals since 2002. It honors outstanding high school football coaches in the region and includes a $5000 Bengals donation to Clinton-Massie’s athletic department. The high school is in Clarksville, Ohio, approximately 40 miles northeast of Cincinnati.

McSurley came to Clinton-Massie in 1996 in the role of head football coach and cheap jerseys and physical education teacher, and he has a .787 winning percentage for his 20 seasons. His teams have won 10 or more games each of the last 10 seasons and have qualified for the state playoffs for 15 consecutive years.

“Everybody in the league would like to do it that way,” says the team exec. “It doesn’t always work out. Teams make mistakes with draft choices. They’re not worth a second contract, but they’ve hit on a lot of draft picks and they’re developing the guys they drafted. That’s a big part of it. When I look at the draft they had this year, they had another good draft and they’ve stacked good ones together. And they seem to do it under the radar.”

But as Cincy’s Team eyes its sixth straight post-season appearance, the Bengals are more than a few blips these days in the standings, where they have one of the two best records in the league the last two seasons, and on the balance sheet.
