ESPN: Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict Fined $25K

David Lee/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was fined $25,000 for twisting the ankles of Panthers tight end Greg Olsen and quarterback Cam Newton in Sunday's game between the two teams, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Werder also reports that Burfict has been told he's considered a repeat offender, and any future incident identical to this will result with a trip to the league office.

"He's got to continue to play within the rules," Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Wednesday. "And he got called for a penalty last week that was, again, not necessarily a penalty. ...Football's changing, and we're trying to really coach the head out of football. And that's been the mission of the league for the last two or three years, and that continues daily. And we've got to do that, we're teaching young guys new habits...Sometimes when that ball goes in the air it's difficult to do all the time."

The 24-year-old Burfict has played in three games this season recording 18 tackles, two passes defended, and one forced fumble.

A.J. Green Carted Off Practice Field

National Football League(CINCINNATI) -- Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green aggravated a previous injury to his big right toe during practice Wednesday, causing the three-time Pro Bowler to be carted off the field.Green first injured the toe in the team's season opener versus the Baltimore Ravens.As for Green's status for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't convinced the wideout won't take the field."In my mind, he is going to be able to play until somebody tells me he's not," Jackson said. "I don't look at it like that until I have to. So I'm not worried about that right now. The guys that are out there, we have a game plan that we're installing and putting in for a team that we're playing and we'll get everybody ready to play."In four games this season, Green has 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns.

Andy Dalton, Bengals Look to Start 3-0

Andy Dalton, Bengals Look to Start 3-0

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals are looking to go 3-0 for the first time since 2006 when they host the Tennessee Titans (1-1) on Sunday.

Cincinnati has a ten-game win streak at home headed into Sunday.

Quarterback Andy Dalton is well aware of the Titans defense. "They do a good job with different looks," Dalton said of the Titans defense.  "We have to be sharp mentally to handle what they're going to throw at us."

Dalton hasn't thrown an interception or been sacked yet this year and credited the hard work of his offensive line.

"It's been a thing that we've really prided ourselves on," Dalton said.  "It's one of our top goals, win the game, then no turnovers and then no sacks.  We've done a good job of that obviously, so we've got to keep that going."

The Bengals will have a bye following their game against Tennessee on Sunday and will play the Patriots in week 5.

Texans Bring Back Safety Danieal Manning

Texans Bring Back Safety Danieal Manning

National Football League(NEW YORK) -- Even though he left the team via free agency this offseason, veteran safety Danieal Manning is back with Houston Texans.

The Texans had originally offered Manning a pay cut following last season, but he declined and instead opted for free agency. He signed a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Manning wound up getting cut by the Bengals, and decided to reunite with his old team.

"Health-wise he's perfect," Manning's agent, Russel Hicks said. "He may be in better shape than when he left. His leg was fine. He was cleared to play. He played all four [preseason games]. It just wasn't good fit for him in [Cincinnati]. It was a numbers game. It happens like that. The right fit for you is the right fit for you."

The 32-year-old Manning is an eight-year NFL veteran who can still contribute to an NFL team. He battled injuries last season and appeared in just six games, recording 24 tackles.

Bengals Release BenJarvus Green-Ellis

Bengals Release BenJarvus Green-Ellis

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) --  Veteran running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been cut by the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced Friday.

The move was expected, as Green-Ellis did not dress for the Bengals' last two preseason games.  Giovani Bernard will be the team's starting running back, with rookie Jeremy Hill serving as the primary backup.  Cincinnati selected Hill in the second-round of this year's NFL draft.

"It's very difficult to release such a fine player and person as BenJarvus," coach Marvin Lewis said. "He has been an exceptional player and teammate, as well as mentor to our younger players. He has also been a standout person in the community. We thank Bennie for all he has done and wish him the best of luck in the future."

Green-Ellis was entering the final year of his three-year contract and was scheduled to make $2.3 million this season.  In his two seasons in Cincinnati, Green-Ellis rushed for more than 1,700 yards.  He averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry last season and had just four catches.

Chad Johnson Makes CFL Debut

Chad Johnson Makes CFL Debut

Elsa/Getty Images(MONTREAL) -- It wasn't in the NFL and it wasn't with his usual flash and flare, but Chad Johnson was back in professional football on Friday. The former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver made his debut for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL) in the final preseason game for the squad.

An 11-year veteran of the NFL, Johnson amassed over 11,000 receiving yards with both the Bengals and the New England Patriots. In his first real game action since 2011, Johnson caught one pass for 13 yards. The Alouettes fell to the Ottawa REDBLACKS, 26-10, in their final tune-up before the regular season begins.

"It felt good. Nervous, butterflies, it was cool," said Johnson on his return to professional football. "I have a lot of work to do but it felt good."

The outspoken wide out played 10 years for the Bengals, earning six Pro Bowl selections before signing with the Patriots in 2011, helping the team reach the Super Bowl. In 2012 he signed with the Miami Dolphins but was released following an arrest for domestic battery to which he pleaded no contest.

Montreal opens up the 2014 CFL regular season on June 28 when they take on Calgary.
