Sharp has been on the Bengals' practice squad since Nov. 20 and joins the active roster ahead of Week 17. Tyler Boyd (knee) moves to injured reserve in a corresponding move as Sharp should serve as a depth option at wide receiver Sunday at Pittsburgh.
Sharp signed with the Bengals' practice squad Tuesday.
Sharp was released from Buffalo's practice squad in early November after spending the majority of the season there. The former Utah State receiver has five receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in his short career, and he'll look to provide depth to Cincinnati's wideout corps.

Sharp was added to to Bills' practice squad in mid-September after spending some time in 2017 with the Broncos and Giants. The 24-year-old was let go at roster cutdowns by New York and is now looking for a new team or practice squad once again.
Sharp was added to Buffalo's practice squad Tuesday.
Sharp spent the 2017 with the Giants, and in the two games he was active, accumulated five catches for 54 yards and a touchdown. That, however, wasn't enough for him to make New York's roster this season, as he was released in early September. If activated, Sharp -- who also has experience as a punt returner -- will provide depth to Buffalo's receiving corps.
Sharp joined the Giants late in the season last year and suited up for the team's last two games, totaling five catches for 54 yards and a touchdown in those two contests. His work with the first team offense likely came as a result of Odell Beckham (ankle) sitting out, but it hints that Sharp may be higher up the depth chart than previously thought. If he can continue to impress he'll have a chance to beat out Roger Lewis and Cody Latimer for the No. 3 receiving spot in the regular season.
