Ickey Woods shuffles into Cincinnati Bengals’ Ruler of the Jungle role

Former Bengal Ickey Woods celebrates a touchdown with teammates in 1989.

Elbert "Ickey" Woods, a Cincinnati Bengals running back for four seasons who starred for the team as a rookie during the 1988 season, will be the Ruler of the Jungle for Saturday's National Football League playoff game in the AFC Wild Card Round against the Las Vegas Raiders at Paul Brown Stadium.

Woods rushed for 1,066 yards and 15 touchdowns - adding 199 receiving yards on 21 catches - in 1988, thrilling fans with his "Ickey Shuffle" dance each time he scored. He also scored three touchdowns during the 1988 playoffs - helping the Bengals to their most recent Super Bowl appearance against the San Francisco 49ers. He scored another rushing touchdown against the Houston Oilers on Jan. 6, 1991 - the last time the Bengals won a playoff game.

Woods still holds the Bengals' single-season record of 15 rushing touchdowns.
