Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Officially active Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (groin) is active for Monday's game versus the Steelers, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

As expected, Wilson will return to action for the divisional tilt. The 26-year-old rarely plays on defense, but he's the Bengals' primary kick returner, registering 571 yards and a touchdown on 21 returns (27.2 yards per attempt).

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Expected to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Zac Taylor said Saturday that he expects Wilson (groin) to be available against the Steelers on Monday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Wilson sat out against the Cowboys in Week 14 due to a groin injury, but it appears as though he's trending toward a return to the field. If available, Wilson will serve as Cincinnati's top kick returner and provide depth at safety.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Sitting down Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Wilson was able to power through a hamstring issue to make his 12th appearance of the season last Sunday in Miami, though Alex Erickson brought back the team's lone kick-return attempt. A groin injury kept Wilson as a DNP all throughout the practice week, however, and now he'll be forced to miss his first game of 2020. Down one of the NFL's most explosive returners for Week 14, Cincinnati will lean on the veteran Erickson.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Will suit up in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Wilson possesses game-breaking abilities on special teams, a fact exemplified once again by his 103-yard kickoff return TD last Sunday against the Giants. The 26-year-old ranks third in the NFL with 571 kickoff return yards, standing behind Cordarrelle Patterson and Andre Roberts in that category entering Week 13. Wilson and Patterson are the only two players with kickoff-return TDs each of the past two seasons.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Many happy returns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has three returns so far this season, all over 40 yards, with an average of 43.7 yards, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

This isn't out of the blue, either - Wilson had the Bengals' first kick return for a touchdown in 10 years last season against Baltimore. "He runs hard. He's aggressive. He's tough. He's got vision. He's everything you want in a returner," special teams coach Darrin Simmons said. "He's got very good speed, he's got a natural feel running the ball. Plus, our guys are blocking well for him and that's a good combination to have."

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.

Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Receives tender
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.
