CINCINNATI -- The Bengals defensive coordinator has told cornerback Adam Pacman Jones to put the lid on his trash talk.Jones went off on Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor after a 23-10 win in snowy Cleveland on Sunday, using a garbage can as a prop during an extended diatribe to reporters. He called Pryors name into the garbage can, pretending the Browns receiver was inside.Terrelle Pryor is garbage, Jones said.Coordinator Paul Guenther knew that Jones and Pryor -- who tried out for a quarterback spot with the Bengals last season -- had an on-field exchange during pregame warmups, but he didnt realize that the cornerback kept it going afterward in the locker room.I had no idea what that was about, Guenther said on Monday. But we dont want to deal with that (trash talking). Were not like that. We just play football.Typically youll have some guys that are competitive guys that know one another that -- in a good, competitive spirit -- are two guys going at it.But to take it to the extent that Adam did ... We need to move on. Adams too old for that stuff right now. And I told him that after the game.The 10th-year cornerback wasnt available on Monday during the teams open locker room session. Coach Marvin Lewis also said on Monday that Jones was out of line with his postgame comments.Its not the thing we want to get into, and Adam knows that, Lewis said.The Bengals (5-7-1) finished a series sweep of their winless intrastate rival, keeping them temporarily in contention for the playoffs.They needed to win the rest of their games and have Baltimore (7-5) to lose at New England on Monday night and beat the Steelers (8-5) in Pittsburgh on Dec. 25.The Steelers and Ravens then need to lose their other games to give Cincinnati a chance at winning the division with an 8-7-1 mark.The Bengals host the Steelers on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, a game that was originally scheduled for the night, but has been moved to daytime.The defending AFC North champions lost at Pittsburgh 24-16 in the second week of the season, when Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and Steelers running back LeVeon Bell were serving three-game suspensions from the NFL.Burfict has rounded back into form in the past two months, and Bell rushed for a Steelers-record 236 yards during a win in Buffalo on Sunday.Last January, the Steelers ended the Bengals season by rallying for an 18-16 win at Paul Brown Stadium in the first round of the playoffs.Burfict and Jones each had personal fouls that moved Pittsburgh into range for the winning field goal in the final minute.Although players from both teams continued to go at one another on social media in the offseason, there were no incidents during their matchup in Pittsburgh on Sept. 18.I think the last game in Pittsburgh was cleanly played, Guenther said. I think were over all that stuff at this point.Game notes Lewis said theres a chance that WR A.J. Green could return to practice this week. Green has missed the past three games with a strained right hamstring, but is hoping to play again this season. Hes been working out on a side field during practices. ... Rookie Jeff Driskel was active for the first time this season against the Browns as the No. 3 QB but didnt get into the game. Lewis said Driskel has also practiced as a receiver and as a special teams player and could have been used in those roles on Sunday if needed.

He places the cigarette through a hole he carved in his helmet for a quick toke and exhales. The green flag hits and out the window goes the cigarette butt and back to racing goes Trickle. "Dick always had a cigarette lighter in his car," said fellow NASCAR driver Geoff Bodine. Trickle was a unique driver with a unique name who found cult-like status before his death Thursday. Trickle, whose larger-than-life personality and penchant for fun won him legions of fans despite a lack of success beyond the nations small tracks, died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said. He was 71. The Lincoln County Sheriffs Office said authorities received a call believed to be from Trickle, who said "there would be a dead body and it would be his." Authorities tried to call the number back, but no one answered. Trickles body was found near his pickup truck at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Boger City, N.C., about 40 miles northwest of Charlotte. Sheriffs Lieutenant Tim Johnson said foul play was not suspected. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Dick Trickle on his passing today," NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France said. "Dick was a legend in the short-track racing community, particularly in his home state of Wisconsin, and he was a true fan favourite. Personalities like Dick Trickle helped shape our sport. He will be missed." Trickle earned his reputation as a successful short track driver before joining the Winston Cup series and earning rookie of the year in 1989 at age 48. He competed in more than 300 Cup races. Although he never won a Cup race and won only two Busch Series races, Trickle earned cult status in the 1990s. Former ESPN anchor Keith Olbermann would regularly mention where Trickle finished after talking about each NASCAR race. It caught on and drew snickers from race fans around the country. Bodine said there was only one way to describe Trickle, a native of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. "Fun," Bodine said. "Just plain fun." Trickle was never one to be told how to live his life. "Its all just sad," Bodine said in a telephone interview. "We dont understand why he would do this. Hopefully we will all learn why he would do that. There was something that triggered him to take his own life. We are all really saddened by this in the racing community." NASCAR does not keep track of short-tracck records, but according to the (Milwaukee) Journal-Sentinel, Trickle won more than 1,000 short-track races throughout the country during his prime.dddddddddddd He was a seven-time winner in the regional ARTGO Challenge Series in the late 1970s and mid 80s. Trickle also captured the ASA AC-Delco Challenge Series in back-to-back years in 1984-85 before turning to Cup racing. "Dick Trickle was one of the best race drivers of the 80s, no one knew how many races he won," said Humpy Wheeler, the former president of Charlotte Motor Speedway. "He was right there with Red Farmer and other short track drivers -- the wins kind of got so big that they blended into each other. He was a product of the rich Wisconsin soil, where they race eight races a week in the season, and he could win all of them." Wheeler said he asked Trickle to try NASCAR in the 1980s, but Trickle initially declined because he was so successful on the short track circuit. "He could not make enough money then as he could on those Midwest tracks, so he deferred," Wheeler recalled. "For a guy who really won at least 700 races, I could see why. In those days, unless you were a top Cup driver, you couldnt win enough money to overcompensate for that." Trickle eventually did move to NASCAR, settling into Iron Station, N.C., where he lived for more than 20 years. Bodine said Trickle was full of stories and popular because of it. "People everywhere knew his name," Bodine said. "Thats why they used his likeness in that movie Days of Thunder. He was such a character." The main character in that popular niche racing movie, played by Tom Cruise, was named Cole Trickle. Bodine said that a few years ago he had to back out of a celebrity cruise for patients who were on kidney dialysis. He asked Trickle to fill in. "He made such an impression on people on that ship that everyone wanted to know when Dick was coming back," Bodine said. "They loved him. They tell me he was the last man to leave most of the bars on the ship and I believe it." Bodine also recalled inviting Trickle to compete in one of his bobsled events in 2004 at Lake Placid, N.Y. He said Trickle went down the first time and crashed. After being cleared by doctors to continue, Trickle tried again and crashed in the same place. "They were doing interviews with him on TV and he was like, I dont know what happened, I did the exact same thing I did the first time," Bodine said. "And were all looking at him like, Hey Dick, maybe that was the problem."
