Position Listing
Cedric Peerman
Peerman (elbow) was placed on IR Sunday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Peerman was expected to serve as the Bengals No. 3 running back before he suffered a broken elbow last week.

Elbow - Injured Reserve
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
No Updates
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.

Rey Maualuga
Maualuga (undisclosed) was cleared to practice Friday.

Maualuga was placed on the active/non-football injury list earlier in the week due to an undisclosed issue, but he's already been cleared to return to the field. At this point there appears to be little concern regarding the starting middle linebacker's status moving forward.

Trevor Roach
Roach was waived by the Bengals on Thursday, Richard Skinner of WKRC-TV reports.

The move was made so the Bengals could make room for Vontaze Burfict, as the starting linebackers roster exemption expired today. Roach will be a free agent once he clears waivers.

Geno Atkins
Atkins posted 1.5 sacks along with two tackles in Week 4 against the Dolphins.

The defensive tackle has just 11 tackles over four games to start the season, but Atkins now has 2.5 sacks, which puts him just behind the pace that saw him drop the quarterback 11 times last year. In leagues that reward heavily for sacks, he's one of the very few interior linemen who can compete with edge rushers, and he's looking to post the third season of his career with double-digit sacks.

A.J. Green
Green reeled in six of 10 passes for 88 yards in Sunday's loss to New England.

Green was on the receiving end of two gorgeous 20+ yard passes from Andy Dalton, but was held under 10 fantasy points for the fourth time in the season's first six games. It's been feast or famine for Green thus far this season, with two games of at least 170 yards and a touchdown and two more with 50 or fewer yards. While that might frustrate fantasy owners, it's worth keeping in mind that Green tends to heat up once the thermometer dips. Nearly two-thirds of his touchdown receptions, 17 of 27, from 2013 through 2015 were snagged after Nov. 1 - including seven of 10 last season.

Clint Boling
Boling (shoulder) is healthy to play against the Patriots on Sunday.

Boling was held out of Wednesday's practice, but it appears to have been for precautionary measures.

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.

Dre Kirkpatrick
Kirkpatrick (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

After not practicing for all of last week and being listed as inactive for last Thursday's game against the Dolphins, it looks like Kirkpatrick is ready to make a return to the field after a full practice Wednesday. Cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris will return to a backup role should Kirkpatrick be active this weekend.

Matt Lengel
No Updates
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
No Updates
Christian Westerman
No Updates
Mike Nugent
Nugent was perfect on three field goal attempts in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

The problem for the Bengals was that Nugent had to have those three attempts in the first place, with two of those coming from less than 30 yards. The Steelers shut down the deep ball and tightened up in the red zone, leaving the Bengals to settle for three points instead of seven.

Vontaze Burfict
Burfict (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

Burfict injured his ankle in Wednesday's practice, leading to him being carted off of the field. However, the injury turned out to be minor and the linebacker was back on the field Thursday in full. The Bengals still may monitored his reps more closely this week against the Browns, if that is case, look for Nick Vigil to see increased action.

Rex Burkhead
Burkhead (hamstring) will play in Week 5 versus the Cowboys.

Burkhead was considered questionable to play entering the weekend. However, same stuff, just a different week, Burkhead will suit up as a distant No. 3 tailback behind Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard.

James Wright
Wright (hamstring) is set to play Sunday against the Patriots.

Wright was held out of Week 5 with a hamstring injury but was able to return to practice this week.

Ryan Brown
No Updates
Tyler Boyd
Boyd caught four of five targets for 79 yards in Sunday's loss to New England.

Boyd helped stretch the Patriots defense on Sunday, his 27-yard deep cross setting up a third-quarter touchdown followed by a 30-yard seam route that set up a fourth quarter field goal. Boyd has been inconsistent to start his rookie season with two games of 75 or more receiving yards, but no more than 33 yards in the other four contests. The Bengals' lack of identity hasn't helped the No. 3 receiver's value. Boyd's usage has gone from 104 total offensive snaps in Weeks 1 and 2 to 52 in Weeks 3 and 4 and, finally, 105 snaps in Weeks 5 and 6.

Brandon Thompson
Thompson (knee) was placed on the Bengals' reserve/PUP list on Tuesday, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Thompson had suffered a torn ACL in Week 17 of 2015 and had missed the entirety of the Bengals' offseason program and training camp. Given the timing of his injury, he wasn't expected to be ready for the start of the regular season anyway. He's first eligible to return to action Oct. 23 for an in-state rivalry match with the Browns.

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
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.

Chris Lewis-Harris
The Bengals will be without top wideout A.J. Green (concussion) and starting tight end Jermaine Gresham (back) for Sunday's playoff game at Indianapolis. They combined for 1,501 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns this season.

With those key targets out, quarterback Andy Dalton figures to rely on running backs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard and wideout Mohamed Sanu.

Also inactive for Cincy are quarterback AJ McCarron, defensive back Chris Lewis-Harris, offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson, defensive lineman Devon Still and wideout James Wright (knee).

Cincy is a 3.5-point underdog as Dalton looks for his first playoff win in four tries.

Tra Carson
No Updates
Derron Smith
Smith (chest) is active for the Bengals' Week 4 tilt against the Dolphins.

Smith injured his chest against the Bronco's in Week 3 and the short week had put his status into question. It's unclear at this time if the rookie will be at all limited.

Jeremy Hill
Hill rushed for 38 yards on 13 carries and snagged a three-yard catch in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Make it back-to-back games where Hill - often thought of as the primary back in Cincinnati's stable - has received fewer touches and collected less yards than scatback Giovani Bernard. With the exception of Week 3's loss to Denver, a game in which his averages were inflated thanks to a 50-yard run, Hill has failed to top 3.5 yards per carry in five of six games. Bernard hasn't been much better, but his versatility and prowess in the passing game could continue to lead to a reduced role for Hill until he finally starts powering through defenses as he has in the past.

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.

Tyler Eifert
Eifert (back, ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Though the tight end was listed as a full participant in Friday's walk-through, coach Marvin Lewis fell short of either declaring Eifert either good to go this week, or out for Sunday's game. Fortunately for those holding out hope that Eifert might make his season debut this weekend, the Bengals kick off at 1:00 ET on Sunday.

Back - Limited Practice on Thursday. Questionable for Week 7 vs. Cleveland
Karlos Dansby
Dansby recorded 10 tackles Sunday against the Steelers.

Since coming over from the division-rival Browns, Dansby has started his Bengals career be registering double-digit tackles in each of his first two games. Based on the small sample size, he looks to be a player to target in IDP leagues.

Jake Kumerow
No Updates
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's teammate Brandon LaFell is out indefinitely with a hand injury, NFL.com reports.

Core, a sixth-round pick out of Ole Miss, had three catches for 33 yards in the preseason opener. He's working behind both fellow rookie Tyler Boyd and veteran special teamer Brandon Tate. But LaFell's injury should increase his reps in practice and in the preseason.

Brandon LaFell
LaFell caught two of five passes for 13 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to New England.

LaFell put Cincinnati ahead early in the second half with a lunging five-yard touchdown grab in the back of the end zone. Sunday didn't come close to LaFell's eight-catch breakthrough in Week 5, but he has scored thrice between the two games. The Bengals' new addition has been a favorite of Andy Dalton's down in the red zone, tying A.J. Green for the team lead in red zone targets with eight and leading the team with targets inside the 10 yard line with five. That's a positive development for the time being, but one would assume that he is more likely than Green to lose red zone looks to last year's touchdown machine, Tyler Eifert, once the tight end returns.

Andy Dalton
Dalton completed 21 of 31 passes for 254 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to New England. He rushed for 17 yards and a score on two carries.

Dalton gave Cincinnati the lead late in the first half after keeping it on an option sweep and cutting up for a two-yard score. He struck again early in the second half with a touchdown toss to Brandon LaFell, but overall had a fairly ho-hum game despite several nice drops in the bucket to AJ Green and Tyler Boyd. At this point last season, Dalton was on his way to becoming a fantasy star with 14 touchdown passes and another two scores on the ground in six games. Dalton, this season, has just six touchdown passes and one rushing score over the same span and has more games with one or fewer passing touchdowns, five, than he had in 12 full games last season, three. The continued absence of red-zone favorite Tyler Eifert is certainly a factor, but fantasy owners who thought themselves shrewd to snag Dalton this season can't wait much longer to find out how much of a difference the tight end will make.

Michael Johnson
Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson had to be carted off the practice field Sunday after sustaining an apparent knee injury, reports NFL.com.

After the practice, coach Marvin Lewis said Johnson will be OK, but he still needs to be evaluated, according to ESPN.

Johnson produced four sacks and 27 tackles in 14 games last season. He signed a four year, $14 million deal during the offseason.

Chykie Brown
Brown is listed as a third-string cornerback on the Bengals depth chart.

Brown made his way onto the Bengals roster after spending time with the Giants previously. He is listed behind Adam Jones and Darqueze Dennard on the Bengals depth chart, and likely won't make any IDP noise this season barring injuries to those listed in front of him.

Shawn Williams
Williams suffered a right knee injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Broncos, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Williams headed to the locker room to receive further evaluation of his knee. More on his status will be known as the game progresses.

C.J. Uzomah
Uzomah (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

With Tyler Eifert (back) still out of practice and looking less-and-less likely to play against the Patriots, Uzomah could be line to see increased action on Sunday. If Eifert is ruled out, the 23-year-old will compete with Tyler Kroft for first team reps, although Uzomah could be at a disadvantage when factoring in his ankle injury. Look for more updates on Bengals' tight end situation to emerge as kickoff nears.

Giovani Bernard
Bernard rushed for 49 yards on 15 carries and reeled in four of five targets for 45 yards in Sunday's loss to New England.

Bernard's usage has spiked in the past two weeks, his 36 total touches just two fewer than his total in the previous four games and twice as many as an injury hampered Jeremy Hill over the same stretch. The multi-purpose back has converted both of those extended stretches of play into 90-yard games and leads Hill in total yardage on the season 423 to 311. Bernard is a solid start in PPR leagues, and will be a factor in standard leagues if he keeps this pace up - though his scoring struggles, just one this season, keeps his value modest. Given Hill's poor start, he might get the chance.

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
When asked if he will be ready for Week 1's matchup with the Jets, Jones (calf) responded, "100 percent for New York. 100 percent."

Jones strained his calf during warmups before Sunday's preseason loss to the Jaguars, sidelining him for the game. "When I back-pedaled I didn't feel a pull, I just felt pain. It loosened up as I was going," Jones explained Monday. "I was trying to go back out and Coach (Marvin) Lewis said, 'No way.' Yeah, if it was the regular season I would have played." Look for Jones to rest for the final preseason game against the Colts on Thursday in order to nurse his calf a little more before the season gets underway.

DeShawn Williams
No Updates
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 notched a pair of sacks along with a forced fumble and five tackles in Week 4 against the Dolphins.

Dunlap easily had his best performance of the young season, as he tied a season-high with five tackles to go along with the sacks and forced fumble. He's now sacked the quarterback in two straight games while recording five tackles in three of four contests. He's now on pace to match the career-high 13.5 sacks he posted in 2015, and he certainly can reach his highest tackle total of 66, which he recorded in 2014. He's a great option at defensive end in fantasy leagues.

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 is re-signing with the Bengals, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Rey piled up 95 tackles in 16 games (eight starts) last season, with the bulk of his production coming while Vontaze Burfict (suspension) was still recovering from injury in September and October. With Burfict suspended for the first three games of 2016, Rey should be a useful early-season IDP for a second straight year, though he may eventually move back to a depth role.

David Dean
No Updates
Clark Harris
Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert (knee) is officially active for Week 14 against the Colts, as expected. Eifert was on the injury report for Sunday's game, but was considered probable.

Fellow tight end Clark Harris (illness) is also active as expected.

Nick Vigil
No Updates
Russell Bodine
Bodine (ankle) returned to practice Thursday.

Bodine was out of practice on Wednesday but was able to return to the field just a day later. Look for more updates on his status for Sunday's tilt with the Browns to come this weekend. If he is ruled out, expect T.J. Johnson to get the start.

Tyler Kroft
Kroft caught three passes (on three targets) for 29 yards in Sunday's loss to Dallas.

Kroft hadn't even been targeted since Week 2, but he got back on the ledger late in the Week 5 loss. He's still not fantasy-relevant, but he could continue to get more snaps while Tyler Eifert struggles to return.
