The Bengals held what is expected to be their last practice in Cincinnati Saturday before Tuesday’s departure for Los Angeles and a week of workouts at UCLA culminating in Super Bowl LVI against the Rams.
The Bengals went to the University of Cincinnati practice bubble for the third straight day in a workout right guard Jackson Carman (back) didn’t participate. Carman, wearing sweats, missed his second straight day.
Tight end C.J. Uzomah, who suffered an MCL sprain in last Sunday’s AFC title game in Kansas City, worked on the side during the portion of practice open to media. He worked on a stationary bike, worked his knee by repeatedly kicking into the air and did some easy running with resistance on a band from trainer Nick Cosgray.
Bengals executive vice president Katie Blackburn took in the workout and spent time chatting with former Bengals wide receiver Collinsworth. Collinsworth, who played in the Bengals two previous Super Bowls, is calling the third an analyst for NBC.
The Bengals won’t practice Sunday. Monday, save for workouts and treatments, is dominated by media commitments before the team appears at the 6 p.m. Paul Brown Stadium pep rally as part of Super Bowl Opening Night.
