Bengals' Josh Tupou: Won't play this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou is opting out of the 2020 season, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The 345-pound defensive tackle made seven starts in his 16 appearances for Cincinnati last season, recording 27 tackles, three TFLs and one forced fumble. The Bengals spent big money to bring in D.J. Reader next to Geno Atkins at defensive tackle, but they could still use a pure run-stuffing specialist like Tupou on the roster. Free-agent options include Damon "Snacks" Harrison and long-time Bengal Domata Peko.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Officially rejoining Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou signed a one-year contract with the Bengals on Friday.

The Bengals tendered Tupou in March and he's now officially returning to Cincinnati. Tupou worked his way into the Bengals' defensive line rotation in 2019, playing the third-most snaps among their defensive tackles behind only Geno Atkins and Andrew Billings.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Tendered by Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou received a contract tender from the Bengals on Monday.

The 25-year-old performed admirably in a rotational role for the Bengals in 2019, producing 27 tackles (14 solo) and one forced fumble across 16 regular-season games. He'll likely be retained by the Bengals for another season and once again fill a depth role along the defensive front.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Manages 27 stops in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou recorded 27 tackles (14 solo) and one forced fumble across 16 regular-season games in 2019.

Tupou contributed as a rotational option along Cincinnati's defensive line in 2019, notching new career highs in terms of both tackles and games played. He's scheduled to become a restricted free agent this offseason.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Signs one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou signed a one-year contract with Cincinnati on Thursday.

Tupou was tendered by the Bengals earlier in March and his signing was expected. He's coming off an injury-shortened season that saw him record nine tackles (six solo) in six games. Healthy once again, he'll look to carve out a larger role for himself in 2019.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Receives tender from Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals extended a tender to Tupou on Friday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN reports.

The Colorado product was only able to play in six games for the Bengals in 2018 due to a pectoral injury. In that span, Tupou was able to make nine tackles (six solo). When healthy, Tupou should provide depth to the Cincinnati defensive line.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou was placed on IR with a pectoral injury Thursday.

Tupou had seen his snap count increase the past two weeks, but will miss the rest of the season after tearing his pectoral muscle during Wednesday's practice. The Bengals signed Niles Scott off the Broncos' practice squad in an effort to make up for Tupou's absence.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Inactive for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

The 24-year-old was recovering from a sprained MCL, but it appears he's shaken the injury. Still, the Bengals weren't ready to insert him into the lineup. Tupou's absence will leave Ryan Glasgow as the lone backup defensive tackle for Week 1.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Sprained MCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou has a sprained MCL and is out for at least a month, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Tupou spent most of 2017 on the practice squad before getting added to the active roster in December. He'll be in a tough spot in trying to make the team this year.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Seen wearing knee brace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou, who was carted off the field Wednesday, was seen wearing a knee brace Thursday, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

It was originally reported that Tupou suffered an ankle injury during Wednesday's practice, but it's now been discovered that it was his knee. Getting carted off the field is still definitely not a good sign for defensive lineman, and depending on the severity of the injury, Tupou's chances of making the Bengals' final roster could be even lower than they were entering training camp.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Injures ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou suffered a right ankle injury Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Tupou was reportedly carted off the practice field. The 2017 undrafted free agent played only one game with the Bengals last season and did not record a single tackle. Missing any amount of time due to injury would certainly impact Tupou's chances of securing a role with the team, as the 24-year-old faced an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster even when healthy.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Ascends from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou was promoted to the 53-man roster Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Tupou fills the spot that wideout John Ross (shoulder) left behind when he was placed on injured reserve. The undrafted rookie played in just one game this season against Jacksonville, but he didn't play at all on defense or special teams. Tupou isn't expected to play much, if at all, Sunday against the Bears either.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Waived by Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals waived Tupou on Tuesday.

Tupou appeared in the Week 10 win over the Titans while fellow defensive tackle Pat Sims sat out with a calf injury, but didn't see the field in Sunday's victory over the Broncos. The Bengals had waived Sims last weekend when it became clear he wouldn't be available against the Broncos, but with his health no longer much of a concern, the veteran re-signed with the team Tuesday, resulting in Tupou losing his roster spot.

Bengals' Josh Tupou: Signs with Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tupou signed a contract with the Bengals on Saturday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Tupou has been on the Bengals' practice squad since roster cutdowns after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent in the spring. The 23-year-old will likely serve as a reserve defensive lineman with Pat Sims (calf) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.
