Position Listing
Cedric Peerman
Peerman (elbow) has officially been activated from the injured reserve.

With Giovani Bernard out for the year with an ACL tear, Peerman will look to take over the Bengals' third running back spot behind Jeremy Hill and Rex Burkhead.

KeiVarae Russell
Russell was released by the Chiefs on Wednesday.

Russell was inactive in Week 1 and no better than fifth on the depth chart at the cornerback position, but his release comes as a surprise given that he was a third-round pick just a few months ago. Russell apparently needs more development time than originally anticipated, but still possesses third-round talent, so there is a good chance he is claimed off waivers by a team looking for either depth or a project at his position.

Ryan Hewitt
Hewitt was not targeted in Sunday's preseason game against the Jaguars.

Although his Sunday appearance on the stat sheet was due solely to a clipping penalty, Hewitt may take on some extra snaps early in the season, as tight ends Tyler Eifert (ankle) and Tyler Kroft (knee) are both highly questionable for Week 1. The Bengals mostly use Hewitt as an H-back, and C.J. Uzomah started at tight end in Sunday's preseason game against Jacksonville.

Domata Peko
Peko (ankle) was not listed on Cincinnati's Week 1 injury report.

Peko was forced to leave the Bengals' playoff game against the Steelers after he injured his ankle and little was heard of his injury after that. Whatever the issue was, it hasn't held him back this year and he'll be in the starting lineup when Cincinnati plays the Jets on Sunday.

P.J. Dawson
Dawson was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Friday.

Dawson was likely signed as a result of Vontaze Burfict (concussion) and Vincent Rey (hamstring) being questionable for Saturday's game against Houston, which could've left Cincinnati with as few as four active linebackers for the game. Dawson will likely just provide depth and isn't expected to get much playing time.

Josh Shaw
Shaw, who had played only four snaps from the line of scrimmage prior to Sunday night, was required to play 17 snaps against the Cardinals after Darqueze Dennard was forced from the game, Bengals.com reports.

The Bengals are down two corners, with Dennard out for the season, and Adam Jones battling a foot injury. Shaw played the slot Sunday night, with Leon Hall moving back to the outside.

Jeff Driskel
Driskel was claimed off waivers by the Bengals on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Prior to adding Driskel, Cincinnati only had two quarterbacks on its roster. Driskel is unlikely to play this season.

Cedric Ogbuehi
In addition to the moves the Bengals made Monday, most notably releasing receiver Denarius Moore, the team cut seven more players to get down to the 75-man limit, per ESPN.com. 

The team released WR Desmond Lawrence, LB Nico Johnson, DT Kwame Geathers, DE Sam Montgomery, OG Chris Jasperse, TE John Peters and WR Tevin Reese

The team put FB Mark Weisman and WR Onterio McCalebb on the waived/injured list, LB Sean Porter on the reserve/PUP list and OT Cedric Ogbuehi on the reserve/non-football injury list.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Rey Maualuga
Maualuga (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Bills.

Maualuga started the practice week in a limited capacity, but was a full participant on Thursday and Friday, so it's rather surprising the team has decided to sit the veteran Sunday. Look for Vincent Rey to get the spot start in his absence.

Trevor Roach
Roach signed a contract with the Bengals on Tuesday.

Roach survived final cuts and all but three weeks into the season before his roster spot was needed to make room for the return of Vontaze Burfict from suspension. He'd been on the Bengals practice squad since. If Burfict (concussion) is unable to play in the season final Sunday versus the Ravens, Roach could be in store for a reserve role at weakside linebacker.

Geno Atkins
Atkins notched a pair of sacks and five tackles in Sunday's victory over the Browns.

After failing to record a sack in three games, Atkins got to Robert Griffin twice to give him 6.5 sacks on the season. As an interior lineman, his unsteady production makes him an upside-only lineup option in IDP leagues.

A.J. Green
Green (hamstring) is anticipated to be ready when Cincinnati's voluntary workouts begin in late May, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Green's torn hamstring kept him out of Cincinnati's final six games of this season and will prevent him from participating in this month's Pro Bowl. However, with plenty of time before the team reconvenes for voluntary workouts, Green should be healthy once the Bengals begin their preparations for the 2017 campaign. A full return this spring would ensure Green, who totaled 66 catches for 964 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games, remains an elite option at his position ahead of next season.

Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Clint Boling
Boling (shoulder) underwent successful shoulder surgery Monday and is expected back in time for OTAs, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com reports.

Boling was placed on injured reserve after injuring his shoulder in Week 15.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Pat Sims
Sims (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Steelers, Paul Dehner of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Sims skipped two days of practice this week to tend to the ankle injury, but team trainers deemed his ready to go for Week 2. He'll serve in a depth capacity behind starting defensive tackles Geno Atkins and Domata Peko.

Trey Hopkins
The Bengals made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.

Among those moves was the placement of guard Trey Hopkins on the reserve/injured list with a leg issue. Rookie quarterback AJ McCarron was put on the reserve/non-football injury list with a shoulder problem.

The Bengals also cut the following offensive players: tackles Dan France and Will Svitek, wide receivers Colin Lockett and Cobi Hamilton, center Trevor Robinson and running backs James Wilder and Nikita Whitlock.

Defenders waived by the Bengals include safety Danieal Manning, cornerbacks Onterio McCalebb and Victor Hampton, tackles Devon Still and David King and ends Sam Montgomery and Dontay Moch.

Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will begin serving a two-game drug suspension handed dowsn by the league.

Wallace Gilberry
Gilberry (calf) logged a full practice Friday and is not listed on the Bengals' official injury report.

The Bengals will be getting some depth back on the edge Sunday with Gilberry's expected return from a calf injury. He's missed each of the last three games, so there's a chance that he won't his usual snap count Saturday against the Texans. Carlos Dunlap will likely see most of the playing time at the left defensive end spot.

Dre Kirkpatrick
Kirkpatrick (knee) did not appear on the Bengals' practice report Friday.

Kirkpatrick was absent Wednesday, but escalated his level of participation in each subsequent practice, culminating with a full showing Friday.

T.J. Johnson
The Bengals have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 17 matchup with the Steelers: cornerback Terence Newman (illness), wide receivers James Wright (knee) and Greg Little, quarterback AJ McCarron , guard T.J. Johnson, tackle Tanner Hawkinson and defensive tackle Devon Still.

Newman and Wright were both listed as questionable to play in the regular-season finale. The team will have four other questionables available to play against the Steelers.

Cincinnat is a 3 1/2-point underdog in Pittsburgh in Week 17.

Darqueze Dennard
Dennard (hamstring) has been listed as questionable for Week 3, Bengals.com editor Geoff Hobson reports.

Dennard was limited on Wednesday but participated in full on Thursday and Friday, which makes him likely to play on Sunday despite being listed as questionable.

Clayton Fejedelem
No Updates
Alonzo Russell

Christian Westerman
No Updates
Vontaze Burfict
Burfict (knee/concussion) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

Burfict will take a seat for the second straight game after failing to appear on the practice field once again this week. Look for Nick Virgil, who logged two solo tackles in Week 16, to draw the start at linebacker.

Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Tony McRae
No Updates
Rex Burkhead
Burkhead rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries while catching both of his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over Baltimore.

Burkhead handled the vast majority of the rushing workload with Jeremy Hill (knee) inactive for the season finale. He didn't pick up more than 17 yards on any one play, but turned consistent modest gains into a fantastic performance. The pending free agent found pay dirt in the first and fourth quarters for his first two touchdowns of the season, helping his stock for this coming offseason. Burkhead's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and 4.6 yards per carry average on 74 attempts this season make him a desirable asset for teams in need of help at running back.

James Wright
Wright (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Wright's availability was foreshadowed by the fact the he practiced in full on Thursday and Friday. With A.J. Green still out, Wright figures to remain involved Sunday, after having logged seven catches for 65 yards over his last three games. Wright still remains behind Brandon LaFell, Tyler Boyd and TE Tyler Eifert in the Bengals' pass-catching pecking order, however.

Ryan Brown
No Updates
Tyler Boyd
Boyd caught two of three passes for 39 yards and had a 15-yard run in Sunday's win over Baltimore.

Boyd was drafted in the second round this season with the idea being that he'd help replace the departures of Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones. The results ran hot and cold. In the first three plus games following A.J. Green's season-ending injury, Boyd took advantage of the increased workload with 21 total catches. Boyd ended his rookie season on a low note, however, with three straight games of just two catches.

Brandon Thompson
Thompson (knee) was not activated off the PUP list on Wednesday, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com reports.

Thompson, who tore his ACL during the 2015 regular season finale, had returned to practice in late November with hopes of eventually being activated, but as the deadline passed Wednesday such an event won't be the case. Pat Sims and DeShawn Williams will continue to provide depth behind Geno Atkins and Domata Peko at defensive tackle.

Knee - Physically Unable to Perform
Andrew Billings
Billings (knee) has been placed on IR by the Bengals, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Billings suffered a torn meniscus earlier in August resulting in surgery to repair the injury. The 2016 fourth-round draft pick will have to wait a year before seeing his first NFL regular season action.

Knee - Injured Reserve
William Jackson
The Bengals opted to designate Cedric Peerman on IR-to-return over Jackson (pectoral injury).

Jackson was the Bengals' first-round pick this year but won't play a snap this season. He was considered likely to be able to return before the end of the season, but there's more of an urgent need for Peerman to return because of Gio Bernard's injury.

Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Alex Redmond
No Updates
Jake Fisher
Despite the Bengals drafting two offensive tackles in this year's draft, Andrew Whitworth is not worried about his role on the team, reports Cincinnati.com

Whitworth, a nine-year veteran at left tackle, said he understands the business side of football and will mentor the new players. 

"How I do things as a captain and leader, I am not planning on doing just what everyone else does," Whitworth said. "I want to be above and beyond and more than the average guy in this locker room, and have and always will." 

The Bengals drafted Cedric Ogbuehi out of Texas A&M in the first round and Jake Fisher from Oregon in the second.

Tra Carson
Carson was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Friday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN reports.

Carson has been on the Bengals' practice squad all season and was promoted to the active roster as a result of Cedric Ogbuehi moving to injured reserve. Carson will likely be the team's fourth option at running back and isn't likely to see the field except on special teams.

Derron Smith
Smith (thigh) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Texans, Paul Dehner of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Smith seems to be in line for his first game since Week 11 against the Bills. Before suffering the injury, Smith was utilized as added depth in the secondary for Cincinnati, and that won't likely change during the remaining two weeks of the regular season.

Jeremy Hill
Hill rushed 222 times for 839 yards and nine touchdowns, while catching 21 passes (on 27 targets) for 174 yards in 15 games played this season.

Hill, a second-round pick in 2014, has scored at least nine touchdowns in each of his three professional seasons. Although that's made him an impactful fantasy commodity, Hill has been wildly inefficient since his rookie campaign. Compared to his 5.1 yards per carry that year, Hill has averaged just 3.7 yards since, and topped 4.0 yards per rush in only three games this season. He also had nine games of under 50 rushing yards, despite teammate Giovani Bernard (knee) landing on injured reserve in November. As a result of Bernard rehabbing from that ailment and the inconsistent Hill entering the final year of his rookie contract, the Bengals could address their running back options in some fashion this offseason, Cincinnati.com reports. That could give the 24-year-old Hill more incentive to prove his worth, but could also factor into his workload if he continues to frustrate with his performances.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Andrew Whitworth
Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth signed a one-year, $9 million contract extension with the Bengals on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Whitworth has been an excellent lineman with the Bengals for ages, so it's a nice reward as he delves deeper into the veteran portion of his career. A big winner in this is Andy Dalton, who hasn't been sacked by a Whitworth-guarded pass rusher since 2013.

Will Clarke
The Bengals have ruled the following players as inactive for Thursday's Week 10 matchup against the Browns: running back Giovani Bernard (hip, clavicle), cornerback Leon Hall (concussion), linebackers Vontaze Burfict (knee) and Rey Maualuga (hamstring), offensive tackle Andre Smith (ankle), wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher and defensive end Will Clarke.

Hall and Burfict were ruled out on the team's final injury report, which also listed Bernard, Maualuga and Smith as doubtful to play. Jeremy Hill is expected to carry the load at running back with Bernard sidelined.

Eric Winston
Offensive tackle Eric Winston tweeted that he's returning to the Bengals. The 31-year-old started two games last year and projects as the backup to starters Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith, per Pro Football Talk.

Randy Bullock
Bullock made eight of nine field-goal attempts and nine of 10 extra points in 2016, playing for the Giants, Steelers and Bengals at different points in the season.

Bullock started the season filling in for Giants K Josh Brown, who was then serving a one-game suspension. Let go in Week 2, Bullock didn't get his next gig until Steelers K Chris Boswell suffered an abdomen injury in December. He was again only needed for one week, though, and was released shortly thereafter only to be picked up by the Bengals to replace a struggling Mike Nugent. Bullock ultimately finished out the season in Cincinnati, but missed the only kick that truly meant something during the team's Week 16 matchup with the Texans, so he likely isn't a lock to return in 2017.

Tyler Eifert
Eifert (back) is on track to be ready for organized teams activities in late May, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Eifert missed the first six weeks of this season after tearing ankle ligaments in last year's Pro Bowl, and then missed Cincinnati's final two tilts after being placed on injured reserve with a back problem. Although he caught 29 passes for 394 yards and five touchdowns in his eight appearances, Eifert's injuries have derailed his stock over the past year, so him returning to health is imperative ahead of next season. Should that indeed occur during this spring, Eifert could resurface as a top fantasy tight end in 2017.

Back - Injured Reserve
Karlos Dansby
Dansby tallied 10 tackles in Saturday's 12-10 loss to the Texans.

Dansby has recorded at least 10 tackles in two of the last three weeks, and he's also reached double digits in stops five times on the season. Although he's been inconsistent this season, he now has 103 tackles on the year, and the 35-year-old continues to play at a high level, which has made him an upside IDP option.

Jake Kumerow
Kumerow signed a contract with the Bengals on Tuesday.

A second-year player hailing out of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Kumerow had an impressive summer with the Bengals but failed to make the final roster. However, the Bengals' placement of TE Tyler Eifert (back) and Clint Boling (knee) on IR opened up space on the active roster. Kumerow likely won't see much playing time in the season finale Sunday versus the Ravens.

Marquis Flowers
The Bengals announced middle linebacker Rey Maualuga won't return from the hamstring injury he suffered in the second quarter at Indianapolis. With Maualuga out, linebackers Marquis Flowers and Nico Johnson will see increased snaps.
Cody Core
Core had a whopping 14 targets against the Texans, but ended up with eight catches for just 39 yards in the loss Saturday night.

It was just that type of game for the Bengals on Saturday. Core's first career reception against the Eagles went for 50 yards, more than all of his targets combined against the Texans. He'll be busy again next week with A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert both out.

Brandon LaFell
LaFell caught seven of 11 targets for 67 yards Sunday against the Ravens.

LaFell once again functioned as quarterback Andy Dalton's No. 1 wide receiver with A.J. Green (hamstring) out, leading the team in both targets and receptions. The increased role allowed him to catch 64 balls for 862 yards and six touchdowns this season, but the 30-year-old LaFell will have a hard time replicating that success next year with Green healthy.

Andy Dalton
Dalton completed 18 of 28 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over Baltimore.

Dalton found tight end C. J. Uzomah from one yard out on the final play of the first quarter for his 18th touchdown of the season, but still ended up finishing with one fewer score than his 2014 career-low of 19. On the bright side, the 29-year-old threw just eight interceptions, giving him consecutive campaigns with single-digit picks after four straight seasons with at least 13. Dalton's numbers were depressed due to the extended absence of top wide receiver A.J. Green (hamstring), but he still managed the second-best yardage total of his career at 4,206.

Michael Johnson
Johnson (calf) has been ruled active for Monday's game against the Giants.

Although he was limited at practice throughout the week, the veteran defensive end will participate in Monday's contest. Barring any setbacks, Johnson should see his usual workload at defensive end.

Chykie Brown
Brown (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

Brown injured his ankle Sunday against Baltimore and went in for an MRI on Monday. Obviously, Brown didn't get the results he was hoping for. His season is over.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Shawn Williams
Williams (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Ravens.

Williams was ruled doubtful heading into the contest, leaving rookie Clayton Fejedelem likely to make his first NFL start this Sunday, as fellow safety Derron Smith (thigh) is also inactive.

C.J. Uzomah
Uzomah replaced the injured Tyler Eifert as the Bengals starting tight end Saturday night and had five catches for 28 yards on six targets.

Eifert was placed on IR on Monday, meaning Uzomah is in line for another start, with fellow tight end Tyler Kroft also hurt. Uzomah hasn't yet scored this season, and once Eifert was healthy he was a healthy scratch for five weeks prior to Week 16.

Giovani Bernard
Bernard (knee) will miss organized team activities this spring and potentially the start of training camp, but there's optimism that he'll be ready for the 2017 season opener, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Bernard was placed on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in Cincinnati's Week 10 game against the Bills in November. While that resulted in him having surgery and missing the final six games of this season, Bernard was back in the Bengals weight room last week working on his recovery. Given the timetable of his rehabilitation, Bernard was never expected to be ready to participate in spring workouts, but it's good to hear a return by the time the 2017 regular season rolls around isn't out of the question. Knowing that, it'll be important to track Bernard's progress over the coming months before shaping expectations of him for next season.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
AJ McCarron
McCarron completed 11-of-16 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason opener against the Vikings.

The former Alabama quarterback is a clear second to Andy Dalton on Cincinnati's depth chart. He looked impressive in a late second quarter touchdown drive, but is unlikely to see meaningful regular season action unless Dalton gets injured.

Alex Erickson
Erickson will likely open the season as Cincinnati's top punt returner, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner reports.

The Bengals waived Brandon Tate and Mario Alford (ankle) on Tuesday, all but assuring Erickson of a spot on the final roster. The undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin has four punt returns for 167 yards and a score this preseason, and he also caught a 21-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's exhibition against the Jaguars. While unlikely to have a significant role on offense, Erickson figures to returns punts and possibly kickoffs, albeit with Adam Jones potentially subbing in at key moments.

Marcus Hardison
Hardison was placed on season ending IR due to a shoulder injury, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Hardison's shoulder injury is unclear at this point but it must be fairly severe given he's been shut down for the year. He was likely just a depth lineman for the Bengals and his absence shouldn't be expected to have a large impact on the team.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
George Iloka
Updating a previous note, Iloka (shoulder) is back on the field to start the third quarter, Jim Owczarski of the Enquirer reports.

The safety left the game with a shoulder injury but it appears he was able to shake it off as he returned to the field. He could see his reps monitored with the new injury, in which case look for Derron Smith to see increased action.

Adam Jones
Jones was arrested early Tuesday morning for a confrontation at a hotel in downtown Cincinnati, ESPN.com reports.

Among a litany of allegations, Jones faces misdemeanor charges of assault, disorderly conduct, and obstructing official business, as well as a felony charge of harassment with a bodily substance. Before he can be released from jail, he awaits a blood test, which will be performed on Wednesday morning. Both the Bengals and the NFL won't comment on the situation while the legal ramifications are sorted out, but due to his lengthy history of brushes with the law, both parties will have precedence to punish the cornerback, even if he escapes unscathed on the legal front.

DeShawn Williams
Williams has been waived by the Bengals.

With Williams gone, the Bengals lose some depth at defensive tackle behind Geno Atkins.

Margus Hunt
Hunt (back) was not listed on the Bengals' Week 1 injury report.

Hunt dealt with some back issues early on in his time with Cincinnati but he was able to play through it last year and hasn't been held back this season. Look for him to play unhampered in the team's season opener against the Jets on Sunday.

Kevin Huber
Huber is fully healthy and ready to play in the Bengals' Week 1 matchup with the Jets.

Huber hasn't missed any time since fracturing his jaw during the 2013 season and, barring future injury, isn't set to miss time this year.

Carlos Dunlap
Dunlap (neck) was a full participant at practice Thursday.

Dunlap injured his neck in Sunday's win over Cleveland but it wasn't thought to be serious. He was limited Wednesday but likely won't miss more time with the injury going forward.

Kevin Zeitler
The Bengals have exercised fifth-year options on cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick and guard Kevin Zeitler, a source told CBSSports.com Senior NFL Writer William Brinson. 

Kirkpatrick played in all 16 games (two starts) recorded 23 total tackles in 2014. He was selected by the Bengals as the 17th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Zeitler, the 27th pick in 2012, started 12 games in 2014, having missed four due to a calf injury. He has been a three-year starter for the Bengals.

Vincent Rey
Rey (hamstring) logged a full practice Friday and does not have an injury designation heading into Saturday's game against the Texans

Rey was able to practice on a limited basis earlier in the week, but his full practice Friday effectively gives him the green light for Saturday's tilt. His role in the Bengals' defense had started to diminish prior to his injury as he had not played more than 25 snaps in any of his last four games. Look for Rey Maualuga to see the bulk of the snaps at middle linebacker.

Clark Harris
Harris (groin) will play Sunday against the Steelers.

Harris returns from a three-game absence Sunday and will resume his long-snapping duties.

Russell Bodine
Bodine was briefly replaced in Sunday's loss to the Ravens by T.J. Johnson, but later returned.

Bodine and quarterback Andy Dalton were not on the same page on a shotgun snap that led to a fumble recovered by the Ravens, and he was also beaten often while pass blocking. It's been a rough season for the Bengals' offensive line, and Bodine has had a tough year.

Tyler Kroft
Kroft (knee/ankle) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

Kroft did not make it onto the practice field this week, leaving him with a "doubtful" designation for the regular season finale. With Tyler Eifert (back) on IR, look for C.J. Uzomah and Ryan Hewitt to handle the tight end snaps.
