Giovani Bernard active, Jermaine Gresham inactive for Bengals


Bengals rookie running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) is active for Sunday’s game at Baltimore.

Bernard was questionable on the injury report and limited in practice all week.

Bernard, 21, has rushed for 361 yards and four touchdowns on 81 carries in his first NFL season. He’s also caught 30 passes for 267 yards and two TDs.

While Bernard will play in Week 10, the Bengals will not have tight end Jermaine Gresham (groin), who is inactive. He sat out practice on Thursday and Friday.

With Gresham (33 catches) out, rookie Tyler Eifert seems likely to be the top target at tight end for Cincinnati.
