  • Bengals' Elijah Holyfield: Lands on IR

    Holyfield (knee) was placed on the Bengals' reserve/injured list Thursday.

    Holyfield was carted off Cincinnati's practice field Wednesday after suffering what was apparently a significant knee injury. The second-year running back will now be forced to miss the entirety of the 2022 season, unless he gets waived or released with an injury settlement by the Bengals. Holyfield's injury should clear a path for running back Jacques Patrick, who was signed in a corresponding move Thursday, to compete with Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams for Cincinnati's No. 3 running back spot in training camp.

  • Bengals' Elijah Holyfield: Suffers injury during camp

    Holyfield (knee) was carted off the practice field Wednesday after suffering an apparent knee injury, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    It's a tough break for Holyfield, who was already a long-shot to make the Bengals 53-man roster for this season. As he and the team await a diagnosis, Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams will compete for Cincinnati's third running back spot.

  • Bengals' Elijah Holyfield: Joins offseason roster

    Holyfield was signed to the Bengals' offseason roster Tuesday.

    The Bengals signed the 23-year-old to their practice squad in mid-October after Samaje Perine tested positive for COVID-19. Holyfield spent the rest of the 2021 campaign on Cincinnati's practice squad but wasn't elevated to the active roster for any contests.

  • Elijah Holyfield: Joins Cincinnati's practice squad

    The Bengals signed Holyfield to their practice squad Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Samaje Perine tested positive for COVID-19, and Joe Mixon was limited Sunday with an ankle injury, so the Bengals elected to sign Holyfield to add some emergency depth to their running back room. The 23-year-old spent last season on the Eagles' practice squad, but he was released by Philly ahead of the initial 53-man roster deadline.

  • Elijah Holyfield: Checks in with Baltimore

    Holyfield had a workout with the Ravens on Monday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    Baltimore has already dealt with season-ending injuries in the backfield to J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Justice Hill (Achilles), and Holyfield was among the backs brought in for workouts to potentially serve as the team's No. 3 tailback. Even if he doesn't reach a deal, Holyfield could still join the Ravens' practice squad and potentially be promoted later on.
