News: The Bengals expect cornerback Leon Hall to be ready for the start of training camp and defensive tackle Geno Atkins to join them for full workouts sometime later.
Impact: Hall and Atkins are their two biggest questions heading into camp. Both are starters who mean a lot to a defense that ranked third in the NFL last season. Atkins tore a knee ligament Oct. 31. Lewis says Atkins won't be cleared to practice at the outset, but he expects him to be back sometime during camp.

News: The Bengals expect cornerback Leon Hall to be ready for the start of training camp and defensive tackle Geno Atkins to join them for full workouts sometime later.
Impact: Hall and Atkins are their two biggest questions heading into camp. Both are starters who mean a lot to a defense that ranked third in the NFL last season. Hall tore his right Achilles tendon midway through last season, the second time he's sustained such an injury. Coach Marvin Lewis said Tuesday that he expects Hall to be cleared for full practices when camp opens Thursday.

News: Hall (Achilles), despite currently being listed on the Bengals' PUP list, is expected by coach Marvin Lewis to practice when training camp begins on Thursday, the Bengals' official website reports.
Impact: Hall suffered a second career ruptured Achilles during Week 7 last season, but reportedly enjoyed a more successful rehab period this time around. As such, Hall should be ready to practice when Bengals training camp begins on Thursday. Considering Hall has missed 20 contests over the past three seasons, it wouldn't be surprising if he's allowed a lighter workload in the early practice stages, but it's encouraging that the veteran has recovered from another gruesome injury in time for camp.

News: Atkins (knee) will remain on the Bengals' PUP list and sit a few days before taking the field during training camp, the team's official website reports.
Impact: Atkins is recovering from the torn ACL he suffered back in October, which will see him begin training camp on the Bengals' PUP list. Although Atkins is pushing to be allowed to practice from Day 1, coach Marvin Lewis is expected to exercise caution and hold his defensive stud out for the first few days of camp. Nonetheless, it's appears fairly certain that Atkins will be good to go by the time Week 1 of the regular season kicks off. When he returns, Atkins represents one of the league's premier defensive forces and an elite sack option among IDP interior lineman.

News: McCarron has been placed on the non-football injury list with a shoulder injury, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: There's no indication that McCarron's injury is serious, and he isn't even expected to play in 2014. With Andy Dalton starting and Jason Campbell the likely No. 2, McCarron will probably devote his rookie season to watching and learning.

News: Jones has been placed on the non-football injury list with an ankle injury, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Impact: There's no indication that Jones' injury is serious, and he wasn't placed on the physically unable to perform list. He's likely just dealing with a minor ailment acquired in the offseason, but it will be worth keeping an eye on if he's limited during training camp. In the wake of last season's 51-712-10 receiving line, Jones is the best bet for targets among Cincinnati wide receivers, with the obvious exception of A.J. Green. However, the Bengals have a lot of mouths to feed, and typically favor a balanced offensive approach.

Impact: Atkins missed seven games and the Bengals' one playoff game last season after undergoing surgery on his right knee. He was injured on Oct. 31 at Miami and was not expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

News: Hall (Achilles) will open camp on the PUP list, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Impact: Hall, who ruptured his Achilles tendon in October, hoped to be ready for the start of training camp, though it appears that won't be the case. He's without a definite timetable, but chances are he'll be back in the fold within a couple weeks.

News: Atkins (knee) will open camp on the PUP list, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Impact: Atkins tore his right ACL in October and continues to work back to full strength. He's without a target return date, but it seems unlikely he'll be ready for Week 1.
