“Hard Knocks,” the HBO reality series, is returning to Cincinnati Bengals training camp in August and will take another look at the NFL franchise it chronicled in 2009. That might be a disappointment to fans who were hoping for a behind-the-scenes look at Tim Tebow with New England or Peyton Manning with Denver -- the Bengals were ranked 30th in popularity in a 2012 poll by ESPN -- but the show's supervising producer said popularity does not necessarily lead to good story lines.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer has been chosen as the new head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, multiple media outlets are reporting. The first-time NFL head coach will replace Leslie Frazier, who led the Vikings to a 5-10-1 record this season and went 21-33-1 with one playoff appearance in his three-plus years in Minnesota. The fiery Zimmer , known for his profanity-laced appearances on HBO's “Hard Knocks” when the series featured the Bengals in 2009 and 2013, has been a defensive coordinator in the league for 14 years, including the last six in Cincinnati.

Brett Favre shut his eyes when he let it go. He couldn't bear to watch what would be the biggest pass of his short NFL career. "I was scared I had thrown it halfway up in the seats," the second-year backup quarterback for the Green Bay Packers said. "I closed my eyes and listened for the cheers, and when I heard them I knew we either scored or we're close." Kitrick Taylor made sure of the score.

The Washington Redskins have their new coach. According to multiple reports, the Redskins will announce Thursday that they have hired Jay Gruden, offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals, to replace the fired Mike Shanahan as head coach. Gruden is the younger brother of former Super Bowl-winning coach Jon Gruden, now a “Monday Night Football” commentator. Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen worked with Jon Gruden in Oakland and Tampa Bay, and was with the Buccaneers when Jay was a defensive consultant there.

Meet Tim McKyer, 49er cornerback. Many Cincinnati Bengals are lining up for just that purpose. McKyer has hit the big time, ending years of the 49er-style, Bill Walsh-enforced pregame diplomacy. Said McKyer: --"Eddie Brown can't compare to Jerry Rice. He doesn't come close. He's not in Jerry's class." --"Lewis Billups (a Bengal cornerback) makes more noise than the law allows. He's a big talker but he's been quiet this week. That's because he's feeling the pressure of playing against us."

For Cincinnati football players Anthony Munoz and Max Montoya, the USC-UCLA game played in Pasadena last Nov. 19 was of vital importance. Munoz, the one-time Trojan lineman, and Montoya, formerly a Bruin lineman, were going out to dinner together that night but couldn't choose their wardrobes until the game was over. "They bet on it every year," Montoya's wife, Patti, said the other day. "The loser has to wear the other guy's letterman jacket all evening."

Being labeled the biggest, baddest team on the block doesn't matter much in the NFL playoffs. Since realignment in 2002, only twice has a No. 1 seed in either conference gone on to win the Super Bowl: New Orleans in 2009 and New England in 2003. Just as many No. 6 seeds have lifted the Lombardi Trophy during that span: Green Bay in 2010 and Pittsburgh in 2005. This is especially meaningful to the sixth-seeded San Diego Chargers, who know firsthand that a gaudy regular-season record isn't all it's cracked up to be. They open the playoffs as a seven-point underdog Sunday at Cincinnati, where the Bengals have not lost this season.

The NFL has fined Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin $25,000 for the illegal block he put on Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber on Sunday. “Huber, he's a punter. And the key is he's defenseless throughout the down,” NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino told the NFL Network. “So even though he's pursuing the play, he still gets defenseless-player protection. You can't hit him in the head or neck, and you can't use the crown or forehead parts of the helmet to the body.” Huber suffered a broken jaw and a cracked vertebra in his neck.

Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber suffered a broken jaw and a cracked vertebra in his neck on a blindside block during a 68-yard touchdown return by the Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown in the first quarter Sunday night, according to a report by ESPN. Huber was hit by the Steelers' Terence Garvin . Huber, also the team's holder for place kicks, will be placed on injured reserve, the report said. ESPN said the block by Garvin is under review by the league. Referee Ed Hochuli's crew did not penalize Garvin for the hit that left Huber bleeding on the ground for three minutes before he was helped from the field.

Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber probably will be known as the guy who got his jaw broken and a vertebra cracked on national TV from here on out. The cool thing about Huber is he seems fine with that. On Monday afternoon - less than 24 hours after Terence Garvin of the Pittsburgh Steelers ended Huber's season with one of the most brutal hits most of us will ever see in a football game - the Cincinnati native changed his Twitter avatar to a photo of that devastating play.

An MRI test on Friday confirmed that Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, leaving the AFC North leaders without another star player on defense. The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought he'd torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. The Bengals (6-3)

Adam "Pacman" Jones is in trouble with the law again. The Cincinnati Bengals cornerback was cited for disorderly conduct early Monday morning by the Ohio State Patrol, according to a Cincinnati Enquirer report. Jones has had at least four separate run-ins with Cincinnati authorities since October 2010, and at least seven other arrests since entering the NFL as a first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2005. According to WCPO in Cincinnati, in the latest incident, Jones was cited after a Dodge Durango he was a passenger in was pulled over on State Route 145. The report said the driver, Tishana F. Holmes, 33, was pulled over for driving 60 in a 45-mph zone, refused a field sobriety test, and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Think playing in the NFL is a dream job? Check out this gut-wrenching story on former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Reggie Williams, who has undergone 24 surgeries on his butchered right knee. Paul Daugherty of the Cincinnati Enquirer paints an amazing picture of how the brutality of pro football has left a former Ivy League standout and two-time Super Bowl starter battling to save his leg. Writes Daugherty: He was never meant to be ordinary. Not as a hearing-impaired youth growing tough in Flint, Mich., not as an African American Ivy Leaguer at pale-white Dartmouth, not as arguably the most proficient linebacker in the 45-year history of the local NFL franchise.

The NFL's decision to allow troublemaker Adam "Pacman" Jones to speak at its upcoming annual Rookie Symposium isn't just comical, it's a "Saturday Night Live" skit. Does a league beset with off-field violence issues really want to make a role model out of a guy who is still beset with off-field violence issues? It would be one thing if Jones, a Cincinnati Bengals cornerback, had outgrown his troubled past, but he's still living it. Earlier this month, he was arrested and accused of hitting a 34-year-old woman at a downtown Cincinnati nightclub.
