So the indication is that the two players that left the Oct. 25 win over the Bears with knee injuries, fullback Jeremi Johnson and running back Bernard Scott, are going to practice. The newest Bengal, fullback Fui Vakapuna, said it looked to him like Johnson could play...Vakapuna, the seventh-rounder who had been on the Arizona practice squad since the Bengals released him in last cuts just before the regular season, got an eyeful of the playbook Wednesday morning and said there have been a lot of tweaks to it since...How different are things this year? Wednesday is usually reserved for The Ocho's media hijinks. But on this Wednesday Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco called quarterback Carson Palmer over to his locker for a joint news conference Wednesday and Palmer stood with him for a few minutes before he departed with, "This is boring. Say something controversial. You're too politically correct, man. This is boring. I'm out of here."The Ocho did say he sent a package to the Ravens defense, but if it is a la the 2004 Pepto Bismol bundle to the Browns he wouldn't elaborate. Palmer said later at his own news conference that he likes The Ocho's new approach, but that he wouldn't mind hearing "the old Chad" for a little bit, either..."I just want to send my condolences out now," The Ocho said of the package. "Y'all welcome ahead of time."The next TD celebration? It will be in honor of New York rapper Nicki Minaj using her signature move. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
