Bengals could release Benjarvis Green-Ellis?

This morning when I logged onto the computer I noticed Coley Harvey’s projected roster. The one name that was not on the list was the law firm.

RUNNING BACKS (5)
Giovani Bernard
Jeremy Hill
Cedric Peerman
Rex Burkhead
Ryan Hewitt

This is what else he said:

This grouping includes Hewitt at H-back, meaning the Bengals are more likely to take four halfbacks. Burkhead, Peerman and Hewitt are not locks to make the team, but there are compelling reasons for each being part of the 53-man roster. BenJarvus Green-Ellis and James Wilder Jr., also have real chances to be part of the full roster. Green-Ellis didn’t play at all in Sunday’s Week 3 preseason win over the Cardinals, and he only appeared in three plays in last week’s loss to the Jets. Burkhead also didn’t play due to a knee injury suffered in Week 2. Even with his injury — one that doesn’t appear as bad as initially feared — Burkhead has a chance to stick based on what he did before Week 2. For now, we’re going to place him back on this week’s 53-man projection over Green-Ellis. As for Hewitt, I included him over Orson Charles here because he has seemed to impress more throughout camp, and seems more versatile. Nikita Whitlock also is competing for a fullback job.
