Jermaine Gresham TE CIN Nov 19 '12
Coach Marvin Lewis said TE Jermaine Gresham is "putting the team on his shoulders."
Lewis is exercising some hyperbole here, but Gresham is certainly playing at a high level in both the blocking and pass-catching game right now. Over the last three weeks, he's averaging 5.0 catches for 64.0 yards with one touchdown and has had another score reversed on replay. Gresham's lack of speed and elusiveness will always be a stumbling block, but he's clearly the No. 2 receiver for Andy Dalton. "He's playing like we expect Jermaine to keep playing; he's doing a great job," Lewis said. "He's really had a good season, and he's getting better each and every week."
