Fejedelem replaced the ejected Shawn Williams in the first quarter Sunday and responded with 10 tackles (nine solo), a forced fumble and a return of that fumble for a touchdown to seal off a win for the Bengals.
Fejedelem probably won't replace Williams - in fact, many of his tackles occurred after he was beat in coverage. But after recording only 57 tackles last season, he's already off to a bigger start this year.
Fejedelem (calf) participated in Thursday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Fejedelem battled lingering injuries throughout much of the preseason, but he appears on track to suit up for Sunday's season-opener against the Colts. The 25-year-old will likely serve as a reserve safety for Cincinnati this season while also participating on special teams.
Fejedelem (undisclosed) made three solo tackles in Sunday's 26-13 preseason win over the Bills.
Fejedelem will likely be a reserve safety this season, but he could see an increase in reps after George Iloka was cut. He made 57 tackles (34 solo), two pass breakups and one interception in 2017, splitting time between defense and special teams.
Fejedelem (undisclosed) missed Thursday's practice with an undisclosed injury, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
It isn't clear what Fejedelem is dealing with or when the safety may be back on the field.
Fejedelem was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Ravens with a wrist injury, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Fejedelem sustained the injury in the second half Sunday and was subsequently ruled out, although the severity of the injury is unknown. Josh Shaw is in at safety for the Bengals with Shawn Williams doubtful with a back injury.
