With Tyler Kroft http://www.cincinnatibengalsshop.com/cheap-randy-bullock-jersey , C.J. Uzomah, and Tyler Eifert all in contract years and Eifert being a constant injury concern, the Bengals decided to keep four tight ends, including 2017 seventh-round pick Mason Schreck on the 53-man roster.After spending his rookie season on Injured/Reserve, Schreck led the team in receiving this preseason with nine receptions for 118 yards. His performance, specifically from the final two games, showed that he is a versatile target in the passing game, who can also hold his own as a blocker. Here, Schreck runs a deep dig route against the Buffalo Bills. He is in a two-point stance at the bottom of the picture. He has a good release, taking a jab step to the inside first hoping to avoid a jam by the linebacker lined up over him (not actually the linebacker’s assignment in this case). The ball is thrown a little behind him, but Schreck adjusts and makes the catch. He holds on to the ball despite getting hit form two different angles.Schreck lines up at tight end on the bottom of the screen and runs the out route at a depth of about 12 yards. He adjusts to the ball that was thrown behind him and makes the catch, then turns up field. With two defenders closing in, he looks to overpower the first, then leaps to try and beat the second into the end zone. This display of strength and athleticism would have been a SportsCenter Top 10 contender, if he had only held on to the ball. Schreck fumbles the ball in mid-air and fortunately it bounce out at the 2-yard line instead on in the end zone, so the Bengals maintain possession.Schreck also had a ball security issue against the Indianapolis Colts in the Bengals’ final preseason game. He makes a catch on this deep out and turns the ball up field to gain yardage. As he concentrates on bowling over the defender in front of him, another defender comes in from behind him and pops the ball out. Luckily, the ball bounces out of bounds Youth Vontaze Burfict Jersey , and no harm is done, but if Schreck continues to put the ball on the ground, his luck will eventually run out and it will end up costing the team when it counts.Schreck lines up on the right side of the formation on this play and runs an over route on the bootleg. He catches the ball and turns it up field, and he took a violent shot to his head and neck. Schreck does not seem to know how to take a hit in general. When he goes down he goes down hard. This situation was different, though. He slide to give himself up, which is a weird move for a non-quarterback but was pretty smart given the situation. The Bengals had the lead inside of the two-minute warning and Schreck was running along the sideline. Sliding prevented him from ending the play out of bounds and stopping the clock. Schreck is not just a big receiver. Here, he lines up in a three-point stance in a traditional tight end alignment. He releases up to Colts safety George Odum, who is lined up at linebacker depth. He gets good extension and pushes the defender down the field. He should stay engaged a little longer, but, a quality rep nonetheless. Schreck is the tight end on the line of scrimmage here (not Cethan Carter who motions to the wing). Schreck comes off the ball and instantly engages with the defensive end. It is a combo block with the right tackle, and as Colts linebacker Najee Goode flows over the top, Schreck comes off the first-level block with great timing, engages with the linebacker, and pushes him out of the gap.With the release of Ryan Hewitt, the Bengals will look for more versatility out of their tight ends. And it is likely that trio of Uzomah, Schreck, and possibly Kroft will be used in the backfield as h-backs. Schreck has done some of this during the preseason; helping in pass protection with chip blocks. Here. he swipes across the formation and adjusts well to make a quick catch as an outlet for the quarterback.The Bengals keeping four tight ends came as a surprise to some, but with uncertainty about the future of the position Youth Preston Brown Jersey , keeping the talented Schreck was a no-brainer. Schreck is a playmaker in the pass game and a good run blocker. He has also shown the versatility to take on Hewitt’s role. Schreck will need to improve his ball security, but looks to have a bright future in the Bengals offense.Bengals at Panthers: 5 players we should be watching The football Gods decided to balance out the Bengals fortune this week by bestowing numerous injuries during and after the team’s 2-0 start. Several key players could or will miss their upcoming road game against the Panthers, and some familiar faces will have to step in for the entire game in order to come out of Charlotte with a win. Here are the five Bengals we think you should focus on in your viewing of the game.Giovani BernardWhat in the world is going on in the Bengals running back room? Starter Joe Mixon had arthroscopic surgery last Saturday that removed a small particle from his knee and was slated to miss potentially multiple games. Now his return is entirely up to him as it was revealed he actually just had a slight meniscus tear. On Monday’s practice, we learned that Tra Carson tore a hamstring and has since been waived, and in his place came free agent signee Thomas Rawls. The fourth-year player failed to make the Jets roster this preseason after an injury-filled three year run with the Seahawks, but won a spot after the Bengals worked him and three other running backs out earlier this week. Now it’s Bernard, the man who is supposed to take over for Mixon, dealing with a knee injury of his own. Bernard was limited in yesterday’s practice and it’s unclear as of now if he’ll be 100% for Sunday’s game. If he is, how he fares in an increased role against a Luke Kuechly-lead defense on the road will be crucial for the Bengals red hot offense.John RossThe offense has been very good, but outside of his touchdown catch in Week 1, Ross has mainly been a bystander to all the success so far.Ross ranks fifth in targets with six and has only caught two of them. He simply hasn’t been an integral part of the offense, even though he’s been getting separation more times that he’s had the ball come his way. The potency of the offense speaks to Ross’ lack of contribution and yet still putting up 61 points, but we’d like to see Ross have a game like Tyler Boyd just had against Baltimore pretty soon. Before that happens though, Ross needs to re-establish trust with his hands, as he’s turning into a body-catcher. As we’ve seen in the preseason and Week 1, all it takes is one play for Ross’ to make a lasting impact on the defense. A breakout game against the Panthers speedy defense would be very welcomed. Alex RedmondAs Trey Hopkins takes over at center for Billy Price in the coming weeks, Redmond has his own issues he’s still working through. Through two weeks, he’s been one of the worst pass-blocking guards in the league Youth Bobby Hart Jersey , and has allowed the most pressure from any Bengals offensive lineman.It’s not been all bad for Redmond, but his good reps have been just as prevalent as his bad ones. The beginning of his first season starting is mirroring Hopkins’ 2017 season minus the injury Hopkins suffered early on. During the first handful of the games Hopkins started, he also went through a rough patch but eventually started to play a lot more consistently near the end of the season. The hope is that Redmond follows suit and he can provide more consistency.Redmond has shown he’s at the very least capable, and going up against Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short will be a monumental task for him this week. Sam HubbardIs Michael Johnson playing? We don’t know, but we do know he’s somehow practicing this week after it was reported he’d be sidelined for a little while with a knee injury. Johnson may not end up suiting up, and if that’s the case, Hubbard will be counted on to play around 50 snaps again like he did last Thursday.The Bengals defensive line as a whole has a huge responsibility going up against the best dual-threat quarterback in the game in Cam Newton. Specifically for force players on the edge like Hubbard, they need to stay discipline on reads and options and not allow Newton to get past the edge. For Hubbard’s third game of his career, he’ll have his hands full in that regard. Luckily, the Panthers are having pass protection issues all over their offensive line, so Hubbard could record his second sack of his young career as well. Dre KirkpatrickIn fairness to the eldest member of the Bengals secondary, his first two games have been about as good overall compared to his counterpart William Jackson. But the head-scratching moments always seem to happen when the ball comes Kirkpatrick’s way. As expected, Kirkpatrick has been tested more than Jackson thus far, especially deep down the field. John Brown beat and lost to Kirkpatrick a couple times in last Thursday’s game, as Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco showed he did want to test Kirkpatrick in that matchup.Newton is even more aggressive in pushing the ball vertically, and we could expect a similar performance from Kirkpatrick because of it. Panthers wide receiver and former Baltimore Raven Torrey Smith is currently 9th in the NFL in Average Targeted Air Yards per NFL.com’s Next Gen Stats, so Kirkpatrick might have a full day of trailing on vertical routes with Smith.
