  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Staying in Cincy

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

    The veteran defensive tackle is re-upping with Cincinnati to the tune of $2.5 million. Daniels recorded 17 tackles (seven solo) across 11 games with the Bengals last year, his first with the club. He managed to play in 33 percent (354 snaps) of the team's total defensive snaps on the year, good for the second-highest percentage among defensive tackles on the team.

  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Returns from IR

    The Bengals activated Daniels (elbow) from injured reserve Saturday, Ben Baby of 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

    The Bengals designated Daniels (elbow) for return from IR on Wednesday.

    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.

  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Shifts to IR

    The Bengals placed Daniels (elbow) on injured reserve Saturday.

    Daniels is ineligible to return until the Week 7 matchup against the Browns. The veteran's absence will hurt the Bengals' depth at defensive tackle, especially since Geno Atkins (shoulder) will miss a fourth straight game. For the time being, expect D.J. Reader and Christian Covington to handle a bulk of the workload while Freedom Akinmoladun and Andrew Brown rotate in.

  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Won't play in Week 4

    Daniels (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    With Geno Atkins (shoulder) still not ready to make his season debut, Cincinnati will roll with D.J. Reader and Christian Covington at the defensive tackle position. Daniels will hope to heal up in time for the Week 5 clash with the AFC North rival Ravens.

  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Active Week 3

    Daniels (groin) has avoided the inactive list Week 3 against Philadelphia, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Daniels logged a pair of tackles in the season opener but was then forced to sit out Week 2 against the Bengals. His presence in the interior will be much welcomed with Geno Atkins (shoulder) set to miss another game.

  • Bengals' Mike Daniels: Still not practicing

    Daniels (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

    Daniels was unable to practice at all this week, so the defensive tackle should be considered on the wrong side of questionable for Cincinnati's Week 3 road tilt.
