Description: Benglas TE Reggie Kelly says he's experienced no ill effects at OTAs from the torn Achilles' tendon that washed out his 2009 season.
Insight: Even if Jermaine Gresham were injured, Kelly still wouldn't have much value. The Bengals have never shown any interest in utilizing him in a big way. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Bengals TE Reggie Kelly (Achilles), FS Chris Crocker (ankle), and K Dave Rayner (hip) returned to practice on Thursday.
Insight: Kelly was brought back primarily to mentor Jermaine Gresham. Don't expect him to have any real fantasy value. (sportsBuff.com)

Description: Coach Marvin Lewis indicated that the Bengals are still hopeful of re-signing free agent TE Reggie Kelly.
Insight: His blocking ability would help the running game some, but Jermaine Gresham is the man at tight end for Cincy now. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: The Bengals are expected to consider re-signing TE Reggie Kelly as a "mentor" to Jermaine Gresham.
Insight: This move makes some sense if they believe that Kelly is able to teach the uber-talented rookie how to get open. There are still questions as to how much the Bengals will utilize a tight end, though, so we'll see how this plays out. (sportsBuff.com)

Description: Free agent TE Reggie Kelly (Achilles' surgery) worked out at the Bengals' training facility on Wednesday.
Insight: Considering the rate at which they fell last season, Bengals tight end could now be regarded as one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Kelly is, for the most part, a blocking tight end and has hardly any fantasy value. (sportsBuff.com)

Description: The Bengals reportedly fear Kelly has suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. (Bengals.com)
Insight: The extent of the injury has not officially been announced at this point, but the outlook is not good. Kelly's impact as a receiver is minimal, but losing his blocking ability could hurt the team's offense, particularly in pass protection.

Description: Kelly is entering his 11th year in the league and seventh with Cincinnati.
Insight: He is a reliable blocking tight end who equaled a career high in receptions with 31 last year. He hasn't scored a TD in the last two years. (SportsBuff.com)
