CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals coach Marvin Lewis shut down the question immediately Clark Harris Jersey , making it clear he won't be talking about the latest addition to his staff — one who's in an unusual position to influence the next game.Only last month, Hue Jackson was Cleveland's head coach, intimately involved in the Browns‘ game planning. Now he's on the Bengals sideline with Lewis, trying to beat the Browns — a sensitive subject that the head coach is trying to put off limits."I think I've answered enough Hue questions, OK?" Lewis said Wednesday with an edge to his tone. "We're done. We're over." Oh, no. The intrigue is just getting started.The Bengals (5-5) desperately need to beat the Browns (3-6-1) at Paul Brown Stadium to remain relevant in the playoff chase. They've lost four of five , fired their defensive coordinator and installed Lewis as leader of a historically bad unit.As part of the shuffle, he brought back a close friend at an opportune time.Jackson was fired by the Browns on Oct. 29 after winning only three games in three seasons. Lewis brought him back to Cincinnati for the third time , creating a role of special assistant. Jackson helps develop the weekly game plan on defense and provides tips on the sideline during games.His input will be especially useful this week. Jackson knows the Browns' tendencies and the players' strengths and weaknesses."That was very unique," defensive end Carlos Dunlap said. "He knows the players, he knows the staff. They just got a new (offensive coordinator), so they're probably calling things differently than when (Jackson) left. So you have your advantages there."It's not unusual for a team to pick up a player who was released by an upcoming opponent Womens Malik Jefferson Jersey , but it's highly unusual to get the other team's former head coach.One more unique feature to this intrastate matchup: Both head coaches will be calling the defensive plays. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was elevated to interim coach after Jackson was fired. Lewis took over the defensive coordinator duties after Teryl Austin was fired on Nov. 12."It brings a smile to my face," Williams said Wednesday during a conference call. "It's kind of unique."It's challenging to analyze what the opposing offense is doing and adjust defensively while also running the overall game. That's where Jackson's presence could be especially helpful on Sunday.The Browns are coming off a bye week that gave them a chance to add a few things that Jackson won't anticipate."He's not there (in Cleveland) anymore, so they could have changed a lot of those things," Dunlap said. "So you don't want to get caught guessing. But it's good to know what they like to do and what they're built and set up for, so it's great to have that understanding."Jackson jogged off the practice field on Wednesday and declined to stop and talk about his reunion with Cleveland, referring questions to the closed-lipped Lewis.A.J. GETTING CLOSERReceiver A.J. Green could return against Cleveland. He's missed the past two games with an injured toe on his right foot, and the offense struggled in losses to the Saints and Ravens . Green didn't practice Wednesday, but Lewis said he will work out the rest of the week, aiming to be ready by Sunday.Left tackle Cordy Glenn (back) and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder) also missed practice. Defensive end Michael Johnson (calf) and safety Shawn Williams (hamstring) were limited.BROWN'S DISAPPOINTMENTThe Bengals figured they'd upgraded their linebacker group when they signed durable Preston Brown from Buffalo in the offseason. He was limited by a right ankle injury that he suffered the first game, and he injured his right knee during a 51-14 loss to the Saints. The Bengals put him on injured reserve Tuesday and signed defensive end/linebacker Kasim Edebali, a college free agent who has played with the Saints, Broncos , Lions and Rams. Lewis said Brown might have surgery on his ankle now that he can't return this season.NFL cutdown day: Interesting moves around the league and AFC North While we sift through the ashes of the Bengals’ release of their 53-man roster, we are also under the impression that changes will be made to it, in one form or another. In recent years, the Bengals haven’t been shy about making a waiver wire claim (Brandon Tate, KeiVarae Russell, Jeff Driskel) or a trade (Reggie Nelson, Kelly Jennings) shortly after finalizing their roster. So, in that vein, we have been scouring the news about recently-cut players who could contribute in Cincinnati this season. Here are some of the more intriguing names let loose onto the free market on Saturday—especially when it comes to the Bengals, as they look to finely-tune their roster before Week 1 in Indianapolis.Xavier Su’a-Filo, offensive guard: Su’a-Filo was a former second round pick after a standout career at UCLA. He’s had an up-and-down career in the NFL and was just released by the Titans, who signed him this offseason. T.J. Clemmings , offensive lineman: Remember when Clemmings was a popular mock pick to the Bengals a couple of years ago? He was once thought of as a first round pick, but fell to the fourth round to Mike Zimmer and the Vikings. Clemmings went to another coach under the Marvin Lewis tree in Jay Gruden, but the Redskins just released him. He might be a band-aid and/or solid depth signing for the Bengals. Donnel Pumphrey, running back: He set NCAA records at San Diego State, but couldn’t make the Eagles’ roster this year. Aside from helping out the running backs in a number of ways, he could contribute on special teams as a return man in a pinch. Tony Lippett, cornerback: The Bengals are said to be in the market for cornerback depth and Lippett is one of the better guys on the open market. He has good size at 6’3” and had four interceptions for the Miami Dolphins in 2016, but didn’t play all of last season after tearing his Achilles. Breshad Perriman, wide receiver: The Ravens’ former first round pick was let go during final cuts. He’s had problems with drops and injuries, but should quickly find a home somewhere else with a team willing to attempt to revitalize his career.Jonathan Cooper, offensive guard: The former first round pick has just never found his groove in the NFL. Since being drafted No. 7 overall in 2013, Cooper has bounced on and off of five teams’ rosters. He’s another guy who could be an emergency starter for the Bengals if they can’t figure out the right side. Vince Beigel Mark Walton Jersey White , linebacker: The Packers let go of their former fourth round pick on Saturday. He was mainly a backup and special teams player last season, but might be a temporary upgrade to the Bengals’ position group, as they await Vontaze Burfict’s return from a four-game suspension. Nico Siragusa, offensive guard: Another SDSU alum who played with Pumphrey, was let go on final cuts by the Baltimore Ravens after just two seasons with the club. He was drafted in the fourth round and battled injuries, but might be a solid long-term prospect. Kyle Fuller, center: No, not that Kyle Fuller—it’s the former Houston Texans center. He was a seventh round pick last year and didn’t hang onto their roster in 2018. Since Cincinnati is only currently carrying one true center in Billy Price, Fuller might be a swing guard/backup option.AFC North cutsSteelers roster cuts: RB Fitzgerald Toussaint, OLB Keion Adams, QB Landry Jones among notable cuts.Ravens roster cuts: WR DeVier Posey, OL Cameron Lee Womens Tyler Kroft Jersey , DE Myles Humphrey, WR Breshad Perriman among notable cuts.Browns roster cuts: FB Danny Vitale, TE Devon Cajuste, OL Spencer Drango, DL Nate Orchard, DL Caleb Brantle among notable cuts.Get the latest on more NFL cuts here.
