  Bengals | Two running backs on verge of milestones    Sun Dec 15, 04:45 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Benjarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard are the first Bengals duo to run for over 600 yards each since 1988, when Ickey Woods and James Brooks helped power Cincinnati to its second Super Bowl. Only once since 1992 have the Bengals had two backs with 160 carries or more in a season, but Green-Ellis and Bernard are on pace to join Kenny Watson and Rudi Johnson as the second duo to accomplish it. In 2007, Watson had 178 carries to Johnson's 170.

  Bengals | Watson the backup to Benson - for now    Tue Jul 28, 01:38 PM

Geoff Hobson, from Bengals.com, reports running back Kenny Watson gets the early nod in the derby to back up starter Cedric Benson and the rookies get the outside poles with Bernard Scott and Nebraska free agent Marlon Lucky listed behind Brian Leonard, DeDe Dorsey, and James Johnson.

Footballguys view: Watson may be the main backup for now, but it shouldn't take long for rookie Bernard Scott to improve his position on the depth chart.

  Bengals | Crowded at RB behind Benson    Fri Jun 19, 08:28 PM

James Walker, from ESPN.com, notes that currently there is a crowded field behind starter Cedric Benson, who is one of the few locks at the position to make the team. After Benson, tailbacks such as James Johnson, DeDe Dorsey, Kenny Watson and Bernard Scott all will be vying for carries and roster spots this season. In addition, Brian Leonard is versatile enough to split time at fullback and tailback to take reps away from the aforementioned group, making for an even tighter competition.

Footballguys view: Watson, Dorsey, and Leonard have not shown the ability to stay healthy during their time in the NFL. James Johnson and rookie Bernard Scott are unproven, but we like the rookie most in this competition behind Cedric Benson. Walker also notes in the article that the Bengals could be looking for a good receiving back to add another dimension to their offense. Scott is a perfect fit for that role as well. Everybody in the scouting community loves what they see from Scott on the field. It's the off field behavior - 4 different colleges, 5 arrests - that caused him to fall to the 6th round. He has good instincts for running the football and can use his quickness effectively on screen passes and draw plays.
