The Bengals signed quarterback Terrelle Pryor after he performed well on a tryout basis at the weekend's minicamp.
Pryor last appeared in a game in 2013.
The Bengals also signed seventh-round draft pick Mario Alford and undrafted free agents Erick Dargan, Kalafitoni Pole and John Peters. Tight end Kevin Brock was released.
The Bengals wide receivers and tight ends combined for just seven catches and 75 yards in the team's 26-10 Wild Card loss to the Colts, with wide receiver Mohamed Sanu recording three catches for 31 yards.
With top wideout A.J. Green inactive Sunday, Sanu was the only Bengals receiver to make a catch in the game, racking up his three receptions on seven targets. Brandon Tate was targeted five times, Cobi Hamilton saw two targets and Greg Little was targeted once, but none of the three managed to record a catch.
Tight end Kevin Brock drew the start in place of Jermaine Gresham and caught just one pass for seven years. Rookie tight end Ryan Hewitt caught three of his five targets for 37 yards. Nobody on the Bengals was able to crack 50 receiving yards, with running back Giovani Bernard leading the way with 46 yards on eight receptions.
Several Bengals skill position players chipped into the lopsided victory Sunday in Cleveland. The most significant was running back Rex Burkhead, who scored his first career touchdown, a 10-yard bolt up the middle to put the cherry on top late in the fourth quarter.
Another strong contributor was tight end Ryan Hewitt, who caught three passes for 34 yards. Wideout Mohamed Sanu added a catch for four yards while tight end Kevin Brock snagged one for two yards.
Bengals running back Giovani Bernard (ribs) and all the team's other probables are active for Sunday's Week 8 matchup against the Ravens.
Bernard wasn't in danger of missing this critical matchup with the division-leading Ravens. The defense will be without Rey Maualuga, but linebackers Vontaze Burfict (neck) and Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder), cornerback Leon Hall (back) and defensive ends Robert Geathers (toe) and Wallace Gilberry (eye) are all active. Offensive linemen Andre Smith (shoulder), Mike Pollak (knee) and Marshall Newhouse (back) are also active, as is tight end Kevin Brock (neck).
Outside of A.J. Green and Rey Maualuga, the Bengals enter Week 8 at home against Baltimore relatively healthy despite having 14 players on the final injury report for Sunday's game. Green (toe) was ruled doubtful, while Rey Maualuga (hamstring) was officially ruled out. Brandon Thompson (knee) was limited in practice and questionable.
Meanwhile, the following players were labeled probable for the Bengals: Giovani Bernard (ribs), Kevin Brock (neck), Vontaze Burfict (neck), Robert Geathers (toe), Wallace Gilberry (eye), Leon Hall (back), Emmanuel Lamur (shoulder), Marshall Newhouse (back), Mike Pollak (knee) and Andre Smith (shoulder).
The Bengals signed tight end Kevin Brock, who was cut by the team late last month, reports the National Football Post.
The Bengals released tight end Kevin Brock and receiver Jasper Collins. Cincy must cut four more players by the 4 p.m. ET deadline.
The Bengals have made RB Rex Burkhead, CB Terence Newman, OT Tanner Hawkinson, WR Ryan Whalen, WR Dane Sanzenbacher, DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo and TE Kevin Brock inactive against the Chargers.
Newman is the only player on the list who was on the injury report. He was doubtful due to a knee injury. The other six players are healthy scratches.
The Bengals signed tight end Kevin Brock and punter Zoltan Mesko and waived punter Shawn Powell.
The Chiefs waived tight end Kevin Brock, who made three catches in four games.
Chiefs quarterback Tyler Bray, tight end Kevin Brock, safety Bradley McDougald, linebacker Dezman Moses (toe), center Eric Kush, guard Rishaw Johnson and defensive lineman Jaye Howard were among the team's inactives Week 8 vs. Cleveland.
Despite a lengthy injury list, the Chiefs are healthy heading into Week 7. Only two non-starters are among the injured inactives. They are tight end Kevin Brock (shoulder) and linebacker Dezman Moses (toe).
The healthy inactives are defensive tackle Jaye Howard, quarterback Tyler Bray, safety Bradley McDougald, offensive lineman Eric Kush and guard Rishaw Johnson.
The length of the injury list posted Friday by the Chiefs does not signify a battered team. All but two of the 14 players on it are probable for Sunday against Houston.
Among its offensive players are linemen Branden Albert (knee, elbow), Jeff Allen (groin/hand) and Jon Asamoah (knee), tight ends Kevin Brock (shoulder) and Anthony Fasano (ankle/knee), wide receiver Donnie Avery (shoulder) and running back Anthony Sherman (knee).
The defensive players listed as probable are cornerback Brandon Flowers (ankle), linebacker Dezman Moses (knee) and tackle Dontari Poe (ankle). Punter Dustin Colquitt (knee) is also probable.
Chiefs tight ends Kevin Brock and Sean McGrath were not major weapons used by quarterback Alex Smith during Sunday's Week 6 home game against Oakland.
Brock finished the game with one reception for 9 yards on his only target. McGrath, the starter, did not make a catch and was targeted three times in the game.
The Chiefs get set to play at home against Houston Week 7 and the tight end remains a position under-utilized by the team's offense.
Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster, tight end Kevin Brock, fullback Anthony Sherman and backup running back Knile Davis all made minor contributions on offense during a 31-7 win Week 4 vs. N.Y. Giants.
McCluster finished with five catches for 48 yards, Brock had two catches for 27 yards, Sherman had one catch for 6 yards and Davis had one carry for 2 yards.
Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano (ankle) did not practice Wednesday and was listed as doubtful for Thursday's game (Week 3) at Philadelphia. Backup tight end Travis Kelce (knee) was limited in practice and listed as questionable, so the Chiefs are down to Sean McGrath and Kevin Brock as the only healthy tight ends.
