NEW YORK (CBSDC/AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals will star in the training camp documentary show “Hard Knocks” for the second time in five NFL seasons.
HBO announced Monday that the Bengals would be featured in the popular series, which premieres Aug. 6. Cincinnati last appeared on it in 2009. The Miami Dolphins were last season’s team.
The Bengals no longer have receiver Chad Johnson — then Ochocinco — as a TV attraction. Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was recently charged with assault, the latest in his string of legal troubles.
Johnson briefly appeared on the program last season as a member of the Miami Dolphins before the team released him following an arrest on domestic assault charges.
Cincinnati went on to win the AFC North in 2009.
The eighth season of “Hard Knocks” will air five episodes on Tuesday nights through Sept. 3.
