Dre Kirkpatrick: Cut loose by Cincy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals are releasing Kirkpatrick (knee) on Tuesday, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The writing was on the wall when the Bengals signed both Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander away from the Vikings, getting younger and faster in the secondary. Kirkpatrick never became the shutdown corner the Bengals were hoping for when they drafted him No. 17 overall back in 2012, but he did start 13 or more games in four consecutive seasons from 2015 to 2018. The 30-year-old was limited to six appearances in 2019, eventually landing on injured reserve after he hurt his left knee Oct. 13. The injury was initially reported as a hyperextension, but Kirkpatrick's failure to return later in the season suggests it might have been something more serious.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Kirkpatrick (knee) on injured reserve Friday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Kirkpatrick missed Cincinnati's last three games due to a hyperextended left knee, the severity of which will now cause him to spend the rest of the season on IR. The Bengals will continue to roll with Darqueze Dennard, Williams Jackson and B.W. Webb as their top three cornerbacks.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Can't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Kirkpatrick hyperextended his left knee in Week 6's loss to the Ravens and has been unable to practice since. He's trending toward a third consecutive absence for this Sunday's rematch against the Ravens. If he's unable to get on the practice field Thursday or Friday, the Bengals will roll out William Jackson, B.W. Webb and Darqueze Dennard as the top three corners.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Ruled out Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game in London against the Rams, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Kirkpatrick has been unable to practice since hyperextending his left knee Week 6 against the Ravens and will miss his second straight game. Darqueze Dennard (hamstring) is also sidelined, leaving William Jackson, B.W. Webb and Tony McRae as the Bengals' only healthy cornerbacks.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Won't play Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game versus Jacksonville, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Kirkpatrick is considered week-to-week after hyperextending his knee last week against the Ravens and never had much of a chance to play Week 7. Darqueze Dennard (knee) is expected to be activated off the PUP list for Sunday's game, which would be big boost for the Bengals since William Jackson (shoulder) is also ruled out.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (knee) is week-to-week and isn't expected to play Sunday against the Jaguars, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Kirkpatrick was initially expected to miss a month after suffering a knee injury during this past Sunday's loss to the Ravens. This timeline isn't as severe, but the Bengals are still preparing to deploy Darqueze Dennard (knee) -- who is on the PUP list but eligible to return this week -- and B.W. Webb as their top two corners Sunday.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: To see extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (knee) is expected to be sidelined for one month after hyperextending his knee in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Kirkpatrick was seen on crutches following the game. His earliest potential return date looks to be Week 10 following the Bengals' bye. Tony McRae and B.W. Webb figure to be in line for increased workloads while he is sidelined.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Struggling postgame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick was moving "very slowly" on crutches and was sporting a knee brace on his left leg following Sunday's loss to Baltimore, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Kirkpatrick was forced to leave the game in the second quarter due to the injury and subsequently didn't return. It's likely the team will shed some light on his injury in the coming days, but if they don't, his practice availability will shed light on the severity of injury. B.W. Webb came into the game Sunday and would be the favorite to do so again if Kirkpatrick is forced to miss Week 7.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Won't return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (knee) is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Baltimore, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Kirkpatrick suffered the left knee injury in the second quarter and was subsequently carted off the field. Now that he's officially out, look for B.W. Webb to continue seeing an increase in snaps as the game winds down. The team likely will comment on Kirkpatrick's status and injury following the game or in the coming days.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Carted off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Baltimore after suffering a left knee injury, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

It's unclear how Kirkpatrick picked up the injury, but he was subsequently carted off the field, suggesting some serious concern. As long as he's sidelined, it's likely B.W. Webb will continue to see an increase in snaps.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Knocks away two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick registered eight tackles (six solo) and two pass breakups in Sunday's 26-23 win over the Cardinals.

Kirkpatrick has struggled in coverage this year, as he has allowed a 114.7 passer rating when his receiver is targeted. That likely explains why he already has 31 tackles after five games compared to 41 stops in 13 contests last year.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Has strong second half Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick recorded five total tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 21-20 loss to Seattle.

Kirkpatrick had a relatively quiet first half but managed to make some plays in the third quarter, including a fumble recovery on the first play of the second half and a sack of Russell Wilson that resulted in a nine-yard loss, and ultimately, a three-and-out for Seattle's offense. The 29-year-old played in 49 of 53 possible snaps on defense Sunday.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (Achilles) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Doubtful for preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (shoulder) isn't expected to play in Cincinnati's preseason finale Aug. 29 against the Colts, though he should be ready for the regular-season opener in Seattle, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Kirkpatrick has been dealing with a few different injuries throughout camp, and even though he hasn't taken the field in the preseason, head coach Zac Taylor is confident the cornerback will be ready to roll for Week 1. His status should become more clear within the next week or so.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Tending to multiple injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (shoulder) who ended the season on injured reserve, recently appeared at the Bengals' facility to receive treatment for a foot injury, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Kirkpatrick popped up on the injury report with Achilles and ankle issues at different points this season, and it's possible he could still be recovering from both issues. Fortunately, there haven't been any reports indicating that any of the cornerback's injuries will impact his availability for the start of the Bengals' offseason program.

Bengals' Dre Kirkpatrick: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Kirkpatrick suffered the right shoulder injury last week against the Browns and wasn't going to be available for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, prompting the move to injured reserve. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but Darqueze Dennard is set to step into a starting role at cornerback opposite William Jackson III.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick is out for the remainder of Sunday's game with a right shoulder injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

The severity of the injury still remains in question. For now, Darqueze Dennard is the likely replacement alongside William Jackson III. More details will likely emerge following Sunday's outcome.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirkpatrick (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's contest against the Raiders.
