Mitchell Wilcox: Won't be tendered
The Bengals announced Friday they will not tender Wilcox, making the tight end an unrestricted free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Wilcox appeared in 16 regular-season contests and caught 17 of 18 targets for 139 yards and one touchdown. The majority of his production (nine receptions for 69 yards and a score) came in Weeks 15 and 16, when Hayden Hurst was sidelined due to injury. The undrafted tight end out of South Florida should have some interest as a free agent, but he may have to settle for another backup role.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Moves back to No. 2 TE role
Wilcox played 27 of the Bengals' 65 snaps on offense and went without a target in Sunday's 27-16 win over the Ravens.
Hayden Hurst settled back in as Cincinnati's top tight end in his return from a three-game absence, resulting in Wilcox settling for a downturn in playing time as the No. 2 option at the position. While Hurst was sidelined, Wilcox offered only marginal fantasy value, as he cobbled together a 10-79-1 receiving line on 11 targets during that three-game stretch.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Season-high six catches
Wilcox had six catches for 35 yards in the Bengals' win over the Patriots on Saturday.
Wilcox entered the game with only 11 catches on the season, but he was active early in place of Hayden Hurst (calf) this week, as the Bengals connected on a number of early short passes. Hurst was making progress in practice this week before missing a third consecutive game - we'll see if he's available next Monday against Buffalo, or whether Wilcox will get a fourth start at tight end....

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Set for another start
With Hayden Hurst (calf) having been downgraded to out, Wilcox is in line to start at tight end for the Bengals in Saturday's game against the Patriots, Michael Niziolek of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
It will be the third straight start for Wilcox, who caught all three of his targets for 34 yards and a TD in this past Sunday's 34-23 win over the Buccaneers while handling a 91 percent snap share. Though the 26-year-old isn't a high-percentage fantasy option in Week 16, Wilcox does offer an option to those needing to replace Hurst or otherwise seeking short-term TE help.... See More ...

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Catches first touchdown in win
Wilcox caught all three of his targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-23 win over the Buccaneers.
Wilcox was well on his way to another disappointing fantasy outing before he caught a 12-yard touchdown strike late in the fourth quarter. He's served as Cincinnati's No. 1 tight end during each of the last two contests with Hayden Hurst sidelined due to a calf issue, catching four passes on just five targets for 44 yards and a score in that span. If Hurst is able to gain clearance before the weekend, Wilcox would presumably see his snap count drop Saturday in New England.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: One catch on two targets
Wilcox had one catch on two targets for 10 yards in Sunday's win over the Browns.
Wilcox provided more value with his run-blocking than with his receiving skills, netting those two targets on 48 snaps while filling in for the injured Hayden Hurst. Hurst remains week-to-week, so Wilcox could be in line for another start this Sunday against the Bucs.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Ascends to top of depth chart
Wilcox is set to work as Cincinnati's top tight end Sunday against the Browns with Hayden Hurst (calf) ruled out for the contest, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
Hurst's first absence of the season paves the way for Wilcox to get some extra attention from star quarterback Joe Burrow. The 26-year-old Wilcox has yet to reach 20 receiving yards in a game over 27 career NFL appearances, so expectations should be tempered despite the favorable circumstances.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Busy role on tap
Wilcox had one catch for 13 yards on his only target in Sunday's win over Kansas City. He played 47 offensive snaps, which is the most he's played all season, both in raw number and as a percentage of the team's snaps.
He will maintain a similar role in Week 14 with Hayden Hurst unlikely to play. That said, Wilcox probably won't have a significant role in the passing game, as he's had no more than two targets in any game this season.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Handling limited role behind Hurst
Wilcox played 15 of the Bengals' 50 snaps on offense in Monday's 32-13 loss to the Browns, hauling in his lone target for a three-yard gain.
Wilcox has suited up for all eight of the Bengals' games this season, but his role on offense has been muted while he's served as the No. 2 tight end behind starter Hayden Hurst. The 25-year-old has cleared 50 percent of the Bengals' offensive snaps on just two occasions and has cobbled together a modest 6-47-0 receiving line on the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Ready to roll for Week 1
Wilcox (ankle) is active for Sunday's season opener against the Steelers, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.
Wilcox suffered a left ankle injury during the team's exhibition opener and was sidelined for the remainder of the preseason. He was limited at practices all week, but he'll still suit up for Week 1. Wilcox will compete for Drew Sample for backup snaps behind Hayden Hurst, but the majority of Wilcox's snaps will likely come on special teams.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Listed as questionable for Sunday
Wilcox (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Steelers, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
Wilcox suffered a left ankle injury during the team's first preseason game and was sidelined until he returned to practice in a limited fashion Monday. He was limited throughout the week but was listed as a full participant Friday, giving him a chance to suit up Sunday. If available, Wilcox will compete with Drew Sample for backup snaps behind Hayden Hurst.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Returns to practice Monday
Wilcox (ankle) practiced Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Wilcox suffered a left ankle injury during the team's first preseason game and has been rehabbing since. The extent of his participation in practice remains to be seen, but even if it was in a limited fashion, it's still an upgrade from the rehab field. Drew Sample (shoulder) also returned to padded practices recently, so both tight ends could be available for a backup role behind newcomer Hayden Hurst during Sunday's season-opening matchup against the Steelers....

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Rehabbing Wednesday
Wilcox (ankle) was running on the side rehab field during Wednesday's practice, Paul Dehner and Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
Wilcox suffered an ankle injury during the Bengals' preseason opener and has remained sidelined since. While his return to running is a great sign, it's unclear when he'll be ready for game action. Drew Sample (shoulder) returned to padded practice Wednesday, so he appears to be a step ahead of Wilcox in his rehab. If healthy, both tight ends are expected to operate as backups to newcomer Hayden Hurst.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Won't return Friday
Wilcox was ruled out for the remainder of Friday's preseason matchup against Arizona after suffering a left ankle injury.
Wilcox figured to see heavy usage before having his left ankle rolled up on in Friday's game as fellow backup Drew Sample was already sidelined due to a knee injury. With Wilcox now out as well, Thaddeus Moss and Scotty Washington should see increased snaps against the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Re-signs with Cincinnati
Wilcox signed a one-year deal with the Bengals on Friday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
Wilcox appeared in 15 games for the Bengals last year, but the majority of his snaps came on special teams. Across 81 offensive snaps, the 25-year-old tight end caught three of five targets for 16 yards. He figures to garner a similar role in 2022, as Cincinnati's tight-end room remains essentially the same after swapping C.J. Uzomah -- who signed with the Jets this offseason -- for Hayden Hurst....
