NFL channel reported Schoebel not sounding like a go today. If you have another option I would suggest you utilize it.


Safety Dexter Jackson returned to the lineup for the first time since breaking a thumb in the opener and moved to free safety in place of Marvin White and opposite strong safety Chinedum Ndukwe. White, the second-year player out of Texas Christian, has started all six games at free and came up with his first NFL interception last week against Jets quarterback Brett Favre. But the Bengals are apparenlty seeking more secondary seasoning in an effort to cut down on big plays, particulalry on third down.
ESPN radio in NY reports Calvin Pace will play... in a sound bite from Pace he called his toe a ding, not an injury, or something to that effect.

Any word on Bodden?
Late game. I'll do some more searching after we're sure there's no more early surprises. May not have anything until an hour or so before the late kickoffs. ETA: Looks like most of the local sources don't have any information. Since the injury happened Friday, that's probably a reasonably good sign.

I *think* that's a wrap on the early news.

Good luck everybody. Hope your rosters were deep enough to handle the early news.

Why isn't AJ Hawk playing? He was listed as probable. The Packers are running a nickel on all the plays so far but I thought Hawk was in the nickel package.
