OUTSIDE: The Bengals practiced Wednesday afternoon in cold rain and 43-degree conditions.

Several players, including quarterback Carson Palmer, talked about the need for an indoor practice facility. The Bengals are the northernmost NFL team without one. Even the Saints have one.

"It's tough," Palmer said. "We don't have the ability to prepare for a dome game, so it makes it tough. It's a definite disadvantage practicing all week in the rain, especially if you're not going to be playing in the rain.

"We've been through this before. ... So it's definitely a disadvantage, but we're used to making that adjustment and moving on."

By terms of their stadium lease with Hamilton County, the Bengals would have to pay for construction of an indoor practice facility.

"We're working on that," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said when asked about Palmer's comments.

Thats nuts...

They play in a gorgeous brand new stadium and cant practice inside? It makes no sense. Maybe some of them will come down with colds...

They may indeed come down with colds. I hear those jail cells aren't the most well insulated things....
