Draft Scout News
11/23/16 - RB Giovani Bernard was placed on injured reserve. Bernard suffered a season-ending knee injury (ACL tear) this past Sunday vs. Buffalo. He played in all 10 games this season and currently ranks third on the team in yards from scrimmage (673). He has played in 58 games (including postseason) since joining the Bengals in 2013 as a second-round draft choice.
11/21/16 - RB Giovani Bernard tore his ACL with 58 seconds remaining in Sunday's 16-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills at Paul Brown Stadium. Bernard will likely have surgery and will miss the remainder of the season.
11/22/15 - RB Giovani Bernard continues to be a dangerous receiving threat out of the backfield, and the Bengals likely will choose to try throwing to him more often. He caught eight passes for 128 yards Sunday. "He's good when he's matched up on linebackers," quarterback Andy Dalton said."
10/18/15 - RB Giovani Bernard produced 83 yards and a touchdown on just nine touches. On the Bengals' second touchdown drive, he accounted for 46 of the 55 yards, rushing for 6 yards on the first play, picking up 23 yards on a screen pass on the next play, then darting 17 yards untouched for a touchdown three plays later.
09/24/15 - RB Giovani Bernard might be the most physical back in the NFL, pound-for-pound. On Sunday, Bernard punished Chargers defenders en route to 123 yards on the ground, most of which was obtained between the tackles and after first contact. "Gio's always part of the plan," said head coach Marvin Lewis. "If we block somebody at the line and get them down he has an opportunity make people miss. That's a huge spark for your team when they see that and get more opportunity for big plays."
