  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Inactive for Super Bowl

    Daniels (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl matchup with the Rams, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    The Bengals elevated Daniels to the active roster, but he won't be available to play. The move was likely an insurance policy in case there was an issue with Josh Tupou (knee) during warmups.

  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Staying in Cincy

    Daniels is re-signing with the Bengals on a one-year deal, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Daniels recorded 17 tackles (seven solo) across 11 games with the Bengals last year, his first with the club.

  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Returns from IR

    The Bengals activated Daniels (elbow) from injured reserve Saturday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Daniels will return to the lineup Sunday against the Browns after three weeks on the sidelines. D.J. Reader (quadriceps) is currently on injured reserve, so Daniels could handle an expanded workload right away. The Bengals' situation at defensive tackle is a bit unusual, however, as Geno Atkins has taken a backseat to Christian Covington and Xavier Williams, so Daniels' role could be more limited than expected.

  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Practice window opens

    Cincinnati will now have a 21-day window to evaluate Daniels at practice without him counting against the 53-man roster. He'll be eligible to be bumped to the active roster at any time during that period. When back to full health, the veteran defensive tackle will help shore up a position of need for the Bengals.
