The Cincinnati Bengals have placed tight end Jermaine Gresham on the physically unable to perform list and defensive end Christo Bilukidi on the non-football injury list ahead of the start of training camp on Thursday.

According to Coley Harvey of ESPN.com, the Bengals said Gresham is dealing with a back injury and Bilukidi is suffering from a tooth problem.

Gresham missed the majority of the Bengals offseason workouts due to hernia surgery, which appears unrelated to his current issues.

Cincinnati now has 15 players listed on the physically unable to perform list or non-football injury list to begin training camp.

Joining Gresham on PUP is defensive tackle Geno Atkins (knee), guard Clint Boling (knee), linebacker Marquis Flowers, cornerback Leon Hall (Achilles), punter Kevin Huber (neck), receiver Colin Lockett (hamstring), defensive tackle Zach Minter (back), defensive tackle Devon Still (back), receiver Ryan Whalen (hamstring) and offensive lineman Mike Pollak (knee).

Joining Bilukidi on the non-football injury list is receiver Marvin Jones (ankle), quarterback A.J. McCarron (shoulder) and cornerback Onterio McCalebb (knee).

  1. Gresham – with his dropped balls, fumbles and stupid penalties he has become more of a disappointment than an impact player. I don’t see the Bengals extending him. Hopefully Eiffert has a breakout year.

  2. Coaches are already saying they aren’t worried about things. Most of the guys will be ready to come off soon.
    This is a make or break year for Gresham though. So if he doesn’t quit dropping balls or can’t stay healthy, he will be wearing a new uniform next year.

  3. Tooth problem go get it pulled and get on the field can always get an implant on the bye week.

  4. Problem is none of these guys are that motivated to get on the field. 3 years of the same old same old takes it toll mentally.

  5. Gresham is a freaking BEAST. I am not entirely sure why the fans hate him so much. He does have an inordinate amount of drops and penalties, but he is a gamebreaker so you have to take the good with the bad. He literally drags defenders when he has the ball in his hands.

    He probably drops the ball b/c he’s surprised Andy Dalton actually hit him in the hands. Just saying…
