Bengals Week 3 rookie report: Sam Hubbard inches away from greatness; Mark Walton gets one chance In a game filled with injuries Jonah Williams Jersey 2019 , the Bengals first-round pick missed his first career game, the team’s fourth-round pick made his debut. Starting center Billy Price watched from the sidelines wearing street clothes and a specialized boot that hopes to heal his foot in the next week or two. On the field, running back Mark Walton was the offense’s sole option behind Giovani Bernard, and got his first taste of regular season action. Find out how he and the other rookies played in the Bengals 31-21 defeat in Carolina in this week’s rookie report:Jessie BatesThe Panthers offense realized early in the game that they didn’t need to test the Bengals secondary (sans cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick) when they could just run the ball down the Bengals defense’s throat. Quarterback Cam Newton only threw the ball 24 times, and he never tested Bates at free safety. In fact, he rarely tested the deep middle of the field at all.Bates’ biggest impact came on shoestring tackle that prevented a long Christian McCaffrey touchdown run. He provided additional run support when the first two levels of the Bengals defense failed in this area with three other solo tackles, but had a quiet day in coverage. His day might be a lot more active when the Bengals take on Matt Ryan’s Falcons, who put up 374 passing yards and five touchdowns against the Saints yesterday.Sam HubbardIt was almost a spectacular day for the non-injured former Ohio State Buckeye. Hubbard and the majority of the Bengals defensive line were ineffective pressuring Newton in the pocket, but a fourth-quarter strip-sack from defensive end Carlos Dunlap gave Hubbard a chance to turn the tide of the game. After falling on the loose ball, Hubbard failed to secure it, and the Panthers would later punt Color Rush Jonah Williams Jersey , giving the Bengals much worse field position.After the game, Hubbard recalled the near-turnover: “I just got too aggressive. Saw it on the ground, dove on it. It’s hot and humid - and the grass - it slipped out. Popped out from under me and I didn’t even know where it went.”Later in the quarter, Hubbard broke through the Panthers line on their next punt and got his fingers on the ball again. Hubbard’s efforts caused the punt to come up noticeably short of its intended distance, but a blocked punt instead of a tipped punt gives the Bengals a much better chance of scoring on that drive, which ended in quarterback Andy Dalton’s third interception of the game. These two plays would’ve canceled out the non-impact performance Hubbard had as a pass-rusher and edge-setter. Without Michael Johnson playing, Hubbard underwhelmed in the rotation. He has an intriguing matchup with Atlanta’s right tackle Ryan Schraeder next week, who has had a shaky start to his season.Malik JeffersonThe Bengals linebackers were exposed in run defense against the Panthers rushing attack, but Jefferson had to watch it from the sidelines again. He was fourth on the team in special teams snaps. If Jefferson doesn’t see the field next week, he may not get a chance in the near future with Vontaze Burfict returning from his suspension and Preston Brown returning from his ankle injury. He may not be the answer, but it wouldn’t hurt to see if he can step up in an area they are clearly lacking in with the current state of the position group. Mark WaltonIt was a surprise for most to see the Bengals only activate two running backs Cheap Jonah Williams Jersey , but with Thomas Rawls dealing with cramps, it was just Giovani Bernard and Walton dressed on Sunday. Walton only saw one carry in his seven snaps, and it was negated by an Alex Redmond hold. It may be the most impressive play from the NFL this week that didn’t count.Walton is familiar with the kind of blocking he received here, as he saw nothing but opposing players in his face in the backfield all preseason long. This time, he actually made something out of nothing. It’s a shame that it got called back for a blatant hold from Redmond, as well as it being the only time Walton touched the ball. Considering Joe Mixon could be playing next week, the next time Walton gets an opportunity to play is a mystery.Did not playBilly Price Darius Phillips - Phillips was active but never saw the fieldAuden TateThe Bengals finish their two-game road stretch against the Falcons and will likely have to do it without Price. A.J. Green appears to be okay after exiting the game with what was initially diagnosed as a groin injury, but if he can’t go, it could be Auden Tate’s turn to dress. Bates and Hubbard definitely need to play well against a Falcons offense that can outscore anyone in the league, and how them and the rest of the defense bounce-back from this week may determine if the Bengals remain above .500 going into October.Bengals DB Clayton Fejedelem among top NFL safeties and more from PFF Coming into Week 1, Clayton Fejedelem was one of the last guys you’d have expected to steal the spotlight. After all Jonah Williams Jersey Womens , Bengals vs. Colts was a game that featured a bevy of former Pro Bowlers and rising stars, including A.J. Green, T.Y. Hilton, Geno Atkins and Andrew Luck.But from this game, the name that will be remembered is Fej.The third-year safety made the play of the game with the Colts in position to win with under a minute left, trailing by four and in Bengals territory. At that point, Luck had matched Indy right down the field and looked primed for a game-winning touchdown.That’s when Fejedelem saved the day with a forced fumble on Jack Doyle, then picked up the loose ball and ran it all the way to a 1-0 record for the good guys:But this never would have happened if not for one of the most bone-headed plays of Week 1 you’ll see.It came early in the first quarter when starting safety Shawn Williams had an egregious hit on Andrew Luck that (rightfully) led to an ejection. To Williams’ credit, he was the first person to greet his victorious teammates as they came to the postgame locker room. Still, Williams’ gaffe may have allowed Fejedelem to at least be in the conversation to start over him going forward. It’s more likely that they’ll share snaps more, but after one week Jonah Williams Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , Fejedelem is now one of the NFL’s top defensive backs at Pro Football Focus.Through Week 1, Fejedelem has earned a 91.1 PFF grade, good for the third-best safety, fourth-best defensive back, and eighth-best defensive player in the league. That’s how good Fejedelem was in Week 1 while playing most of the game after Williams was ejected in the first quarter. It’s been quite a rise for Fejedelem, who the Bengals selected out of Illinois with the 245th overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft. Making his rise even more amazing was before he attended Illinois, Fejedelem played for NAIA school St. Xavier State.It’s very rare to see an NAIA player make it to the NFL, let alone be a star for even one game the way Fejedelem was. He’s truly one of the best stories about the 2018 Bengals. But Fejedelem wasn’t the only 2016 draft pick to shine Sunday. Outside linebacker and former third-round pick Nick Vigil recorded seven defensive stops (4 run; 3 pass) against the Colts on Sunday, five more than any other Cincinnati defender. He also led the team with 12 tackles. That earned him an 85.2 PFF grade, good for 11th-best among linebackers entering Week 2. Bengals rookie safety Jessie Bates played all 82 defensive snaps and earned a 79.1 overall grade in his regular-season debut, which has him ranked ninth among all NFL safeties after Week 1. Only Seattle and Cincinnati have two safeties ranked inside the top 10. As good as the Bengals’ defensive backs were Jonah Williams Jersey 2019 , the right side of the offensive line was the complete opposite. Right guard Alex Redmond earned a 56.5 overall grade across 56 offensive snaps in Indy, allowing five total pressures in the process. Redmond and Bobby Hart (37.4 overall grade) earned the two lowest grades of any Bengals offensive player and allowed 10 total pressures combined.When rushing to the left and right of Redmond, Bengals running backs totaled eight yards on five carries (1.6 YPC). Rushing everywhere else, Cincy running backs totaled 85 yards on 13 carries (6.54 YPC).鈥婽hat’s not going to cut it, and the Bengals probably should cut Hart, who is PFF’s second-worst offensive lineman after Week 1. Only Chargers guard Dan Feeney earned a lower grade.
