The Cincinnati Bengals have Eli Apple's back in his ongoing feud with Tyreek Hill.
The Bengals will face the Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati's Paycor Stadium on Thursday night.
After the Dolphins' victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Hill said he owes Apple after their meetings last season when he was with the Kansas City Chiefs. Apple and the Bengals won both, including in the AFC Championship Game to advance to Super Bowl LVI.
"I can't wait to go against Eli Apple. I owe you, boy. I owe you. I'm here. The Cheetah is here. That's it," Hill said.
Bengals safety Jessie Bates III said Apple has the support of his teammates.
"(If) somebody comes after Eli, he comes after all of us," Bates said. "We're all up for the challenge."
