Bengals news: Using RBs Giovani Bernard, Jeremy Hill at same time; TE Jermaine Gresham on the mend

According to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website, the team is "toying" with putting running backs Giovani Bernard @G_Bernard25 and Jeremy Hill on the field at the same time. Hobson points out that such an alignment could prove troublesome for any defense since both players are capable pass-catchers.
Also, a source tells ESPN's Field Yates that tight end Jermaine Gresham has been missing and will continue to miss OTAs because he is still recovering from offseason hernia surgery.

Fantasy Analysis:

Gresham's injury would give Tyler Eifert @EiferTy85 more field time and more opportunities to carve out a larger role for himself if he wasn't also injured; Eifert is sitting out of these workouts due to a shoulder problem. I don't want any part of Gresham, but I'm also not expecting a massive statistical improvement from Eifert. Both are mid-range TE2s.
My key takeaway from that bit about Bernard and Hill is that the rookie is comfortably ahead of veteran RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis @TheLawFirmBJGE at this early stage of their competition for the No. 2 spot. We'll see if Hill can keep it up in training camp. If he can, BJG-E is likely to be cut.
