Bengals expect Giovani Bernard to play in Week 12

Bengals running back Giovani Bernard is expected to return to action for the team’s Week 12 game against the Texans.

Bernard has missed three games dealing with hip and collarbone injuries but he is ready to return to action now.

This news comes a day after Jeremy Hill ran for 152 yards against the Saints.

“Jeremy is such a tough runner. As he keeps going and just becomes a Bengal and just plays
football, he’ll only be more and more impressive,” head coach Marvin Lewis said of Hill. “He’s got a lot of ability – he’s strong, he can cut and run, he’s got great speed, great vision and can catch the football. He’s a very complete player. As a young guy, he’s showing a lot right now. We’ve got to feel good about that.”
