Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Pens RFA tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hand) signed his restricted free agent tender with the Bengals on Sunday.

Wilson's one-year contract sets him up to return for a fourth straight season in Cincinnati. He proved to be a quality return specialist for the team in 2019, logging a league-best 31.3 yards per kick return while also contributing as a reserve safety and in other roles on special teams.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hand) was given a contract tender by the Bengals on Monday.

Wilson played 12 games in 2019 before a hand injury ended his season. The 25-year-old made his biggest impact in the return game, taking back one kick for a touchdown in 2019 while racking up an NFL-best 31.3 yards per kick return. He also chipped in 24 tackles (14 solo) and two forced fumbles as a reserve safety.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Moves to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hand) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Wilson was already ruled out for Week 14 but will now miss the rest of the season due to the hand injury. The 25-year-old enjoyed a quality campaign returning kickoffs for the Bengals, averaging 31.3 yards with one touchdown on 20 kick returns. Alex Erickson is a likely candidate to take over that role for the final month of the season.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Out Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hand) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Cleveland, Geoff Hopson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Wilson aggravated the hand injury during last week's win over the Jets and won't be able to play Week 14. The 25-year-old is averaging 31.3 yards and has one touchdown on 20 kick returns this season. Punt returner Alex Erickson is a likely option to fill in on kickoffs for the Bengals.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Aggravates injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hand) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jets, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

According to Morrison, Wilson had been dealing with the hand injury and seemed to further injure it during the game. As long as Wilson is sidelined, look for Clayton Fejedelem to see an increase in depth safety reps.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Returns opening kick for touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson returned Sunday's opening kickoff for 92 yards and a touchdown. He also logged 56 snaps on defense at safety thanks to Shawn Williams's thigh injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

That was the Bengals first kickoff return for a touchdown since Bernard Scott did it in 2009 against the Steelers. He also had four tackles and forced a fumble in the loss against the Ravens.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Posts one tackle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (chest) recorded one tackle during Thursday's preseason loss to the Giants.

Wilson appears fully recovered from his chest injury, having played 14 defensive snaps and eight snaps on special teams Thursday. The third-year pro projects to play a depth role in Cincinnati's secondary.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Inks deal with Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (chest) signed a one-year contract with the Bengals on Monday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

After being extended a tender over the weekend, Wilson now officially re-ups with Cincinnati. The third-year safety suited up for 16 games with the Bengals last season, notching 11 tackles (six solo) while playing primarily on special teams. Wilson sustained a chest injury during the final week of the regular season, and it remains unclear whether his recovery will interfere with offseason training.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Receives tender from Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals extended a tender to Wilson (chest) on Friday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN reports.

Wilson was decent suiting up primarily on special teams in 2018, accumulating 11 tackles (five solo) in 16 games. The Houston product did suffer a chest injury in the final week of the regular season, so it's unclear whether he'll be ready for offseason training.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Ruled out with chest injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Steelers due to a chest injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

With Wilson unable to retake the field, Clayton Fejedelem will serve as Cincinnati's only healthy depth safety for the remainder of Sunday's season finale.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Logs full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Wilson was forced to sit out Week 14's game against the Bears due to a hamstring injury. The safety was signed off the Bengals' practice squad in early November and is mainly a contributor on special teams.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Set to sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

The rookie sixth-round pick plays mainly on special teams, but with three starters on the Bengals' secondary already ruled out, Wilson could have earned some defensive snaps.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Nursing hamstring ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Wilson is mainly used as a depth safety with special teams upside, but with the littering of injuries in the Bengals' secondary, he could be due for some defensive snaps Sunday.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Signs with Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals signed Wilson off their practice squad Saturday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Wilson, a sixth-round rookie out of Houston, was previously waived by the team coming out of training camp after beginning the season on the Non-Football/Injury list with a knee issue. Now healthy, he'll provide the team with some additional depth at safety with Shawn Williams (hamstring) listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Activated from NFI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (knee) has been activated from the non-football injury list and is now eligible to practice and play, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The 2017 seventh-round pick will have a few practices and one preseason game Thursday in Indianapolis to prove he can be a capable safety in the league. His most likely way onto the 53-man roster is taking the special teams route, though.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Aggravates knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson, the Bengals' sixth-round pick from the University of Houston, aggravated a knee injury during position drills and has been placed on the active/non-football injury list, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Wilson was working at safety instead of corner before the injury. He can practice whenever he's medically cleared and still counts against the Bengals' 90-man roster.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Non-participant at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson is dealing with a knee injury and has yet to participate fully in a practice since the start of rookie minicamp, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com reports.

When and how the injury occurred is unknown at this time. Wilson has been able to dress for practice, so a return to a heavier workload figures to be around the corner. The sixth-round pick will enter training camp competing for a spot on the final roster.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Picked by Cincy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals selected Wilson in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 207th overall.

Yet another nice pick for the Bengals. Wilson (5-foot-10, 198 pounds) is an excellent athlete and was a standout performer on one of college football's best defenses. At the Houston pro day he logged a 4.40-second 40, a 41-inch vertical and a 133-inch broad jump. He played some running back at Houston, but he's presumably a corner to the Bengals.
