Bengals guard Clint Boling announced his retirement from the NFL today due to heath issues. He has been sidelined all summer with an undisclosed injury. “After eight years in the NFL, it is time for me to step away from the game due to medical reasons,” Boling said in a news release. “This is not an easy decision, but it is the right one for me, my wife Kelly and our two young girls. I want to thank the Brown family for giving me the opportunity to play my entire career with the Bengals. I also want to thank my teammates, coaches, fans and everyone who has supported me throughout my career.”

Bengals announced that rookie OT Jonah Williams had left shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum. Williams likely will miss the 2019 season, but is expected to make a full recovery.

The Bengals are going to have some lineup shuffling today with first-round pick Jonah Williams "dinged up," according to Zac Taylor. Williams must have gotten injured during the closed portion of OTAs last week, although Taylor wouldn't speculate on the severity, saying only that Williams was going to see doctors. Williams is in attendance at minicamp, standing on the sideline and watching. It's possible they'll try to work in new guard John Jerry a bit after he signed yesterday. Clint Boling is still working out on the sideline, so it looks like he won't be participating again.

The Bengals are getting John Ross and A.J. Green back for mini-camp today, although Green will be limited to mostly individual drills. Zac Taylor said Green has been fully cleared from the toe injury that ended his season, but he doesn't need to see anything from him at this point, as he knows full well what Green can do. Ross didn't practice during the open portion of OTAs last week.

The Bengals signed former Giants guard John Jerry and waived Rod Taylor. Tough break for Taylor, a 7th round draft pick last year who tore his ACL on Day 1 of training camp and appeared to still be recovering, as he had not worked his way back into a normal practice routine yet.
