  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: First double-digit tackle outing

    Awuzie notched 10 solo tackles during Sunday's 34-31 win over the Chiefs.

    Awuzie logged his best fantasy performance of the season during Week 17's crucial win, while playing 100 percent of defensive snaps for the first time since Week 11. The starting cornerback will look to capitalize on opportunities Week 18 against the Browns and quarterback Baker Mayfield, who has thrown seven interceptions in his last three appearances.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Comes off COVID-19 list

    Awuzie was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Awuzie did not play in the Week 15 win over the Broncos, but the starting cornerback will be available in a pivotal divisional matchup come Sunday. The 26-year-old corner has already set a career high with two interceptions and could even push for a career high in tackles with a couple of solid games to end the season.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Sitting out against Broncos

    Awuzie (undisclosed) won't play Sunday against Denver, per coach Zac Taylor, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Awuzie is on the reserve/COVID-19 list and was also battling a foot injury prior to being placed in COVID protocols. His next chance to take the field will come in Week 16 against the Ravens.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Awuzie (foot) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Awuzie hurt his foot in Sunday's loss to the 49ers and was hopeful he'd be able to play in Week 15, but he'll now need to spend some time away from the team. It's not yet clear whether the 26-year-old has tested positive for COVID-19, but his status for Sunday's game against Denver appears to be in doubt. The Bengals are hopeful that Trae Waynes (hamstring) will be able to return from injured reserve to shoulder some of the load in the secondary, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. However, if Waynes remains sidelined, Vernon Hargreaves could see additional playing time Sunday.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Sits out Wednesday's practice

    Awuzie (foot) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Confident he will play Week 15

    Awuzie said he re-injured his foot during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, but he is confident he'll be available for Week 15, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Awuzie was dealing with an ankle injury ahead of Week 14, but he was able to suit up and notched six tackles across 58 defensive snaps. Despite the minor setback, the fifth-year pro is expected to play in Week 15, but his status should be monitored closely throughout the week.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Active against 49ers

    Awuzie (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

    Awuzie managed only one limited practice throughout the week, though that will be enough for him to suit up. He should maintain his role as a starting corner, and he's recorded 41 tackles, 10 passes defended and two interceptions through 11 games on the campaign.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Receives questionable tag

    Awuzie (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Awuzie suffered the foot injury during last week's loss to the Chargers, and his availability for Week 14 remains up in the air. Vernon Hargreaves figures to have an increased role if Awuzie is unable to suit up Sunday.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Doubtful with foot inury

    Awuzie is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Chargers with a right foot injury.

    Awuzie picked off Justin Herbert earlier in the game by making a leaping catch over Josh Palmer. He was seen testing his foot on the sideline, though the injury appears to be serious enough to likely keep him sidelined him for the rest of the game.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Bengals placed Awuzie (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Awuzie will need to clear all protocols related to COVID-19 before returning to team facilities, but with the Bengals on bye Week 10, he will have plenty of additional time before Nov. 21's contest against the Raiders. In his two most recent appearances, Awuzie has handled 95-plus percent of defensive snaps.
