Gilberry announced last week on his personal Instagram account that he has retired from professional football.
Gilberry elected to call it a career after failing to find work when the Bengals released him at the conclusion of training camp. The defensive end played nine NFL seasons with the Chiefs, Bengals and Lions, accruing 34 sacks and six fumble recoveries in 124 career regular-season contests.
Gilberry was released by the Bengals on Saturday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.
Gilberry hasn't shown much production the last couple of seasons, and would have likely been a depth piece if he did manage to crack the roster. The 32-year-old missed four late-season games when dealing with a calf injury last year, but could still provide some value for teams with little depth at defensive end.
Gilberry is at risk of getting cut before the start of the season, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The Bengals loaded up on the defensive line in the draft the last two years, and Gilberry hasn't been all that productive in the pass rush. The team already cut Brandon Thompson (who subsequently signed with the Browns), but another veteran DL could still be on the chopping block.
Gilbert has re-upped with the Bengals, ESPN's Jenna Laine reports.
Gilberry signed with the Lions last offseason after spending the previous five years in Cincinnati. Detroit placed him on injured reserve in October and released him shortly thereafter, allowing him to rejoin the Bengals for the second half of the year. The 32-year-old may have to compete for a roster spot at this point in his career, as he only has six sacks over the past three seasons.
Gilberry (calf) logged a full practice Friday and is not listed on the Bengals' official injury report.
The Bengals will be getting some depth back on the edge Sunday with Gilberry's expected return from a calf injury. He's missed each of the last three games, so there's a chance that he won't his usual snap count Saturday against the Texans. Carlos Dunlap will likely see most of the playing time at the left defensive end spot.
Gilberry (calf) is inactive Sunday against the Steelers.
Gilberry was doubtful heading into the contest, so it's no surprise to see him on the inactive list. It will be his third straight game on the sideline, as Carlos Dunlap and Michael Johnson will continue to handle the majority of reps at defensive end.
Gilberry (calf) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.
Gilberry appears to be in line for his third consecutive missed game due to a calf issue, though the Bengals have additional depth at defensive end, meaning his potential absence shouldn't have much of an impact.
Gilberry (calf) is ruled out of Sunday's game against the Browns.
Gilberry didn't take the practice field at all this week and is set to miss his second straight game. He'll look to get back in commission prior to the Bengals' Week 15 matchup with the Steelers.
Gilberry (calf) is ruled out of Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Gilberry seems to have sustained an injury during practice Wednesday. As the last defensive end on the Bengals' depth chart, Gilberry's absence likely won't have an impact on the outcome of the game.
Gilberry (calf) is active for Sunday's tilt with the Bills.
Gilberry was injured in Monday night's loss to the Giants but will suit up for Week 11. The reserve lineman doesn't figure to see a ton of reps to anyway but he could be monitored even more because of the injury.
Gilberry (calf) is questionable to play Sunday against the Bills, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
Gilberry was injured Monday night against the Giants. However, he's the last defensive end on the Bengals' depth chart and his potential absence likely wouldn't be a significant problem.
Gilberry suffered a calf injury during Monday's loss to the Giants.
Gilberry only managed to make one tackle on the night before leaving the game with an unspecified calf injury. At this point the severity of his injury is unknown, but his ability to practice this week will likely denote the severity as Cincinnati looks ahead to Sunday's game against the Bills.
Gilberry (abdomen) signed with the Bengals on Monday, Adam Caplan on ESPN reports.
Gilberry was released by the Lions after being place on injured reserve a littler over a month ago with an abdomen injury. Whether the defensive end will be able to play is still unknown, but Gilberry has at least earned a shot at potentially seeing the field again this season.
Gilberry (abdomen) was released by the Lions on Tuesday.
The Lions decided to cut ties with the defensive end after he was placed on IR a little over a week ago. He recorded five tackles in four games this season and will now focus on getting back to full strength before finding a new team.
Gilberry (abdomen) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Gilberry started in Sunday's loss to the Bears, playing 33 snaps, but will now spend the rest of the season on the sidelines. He will finish the campaign with four tackles in four games as a reserve defensive end. The Lions signed linebacker Armonty Bryant off waivers after moving Gilberry to IR.
Gilberry (abdomen) is active and slated to start in Sunday's tilt with the Bears.
Gilberry was listed as questionable in Friday's injury report but will take the field against the Bears on Sunday. With Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) out once again, Gilberry is expected to take over as the starting right defensive end. If he should see his snaps monitored because of the injury, look for Anthony Zettel to see increased action.
Gilberry (abdomen) is active for Sunday's Week 3 tilt with the Packers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Gilberry figures to see an elevated snap count with Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) set to miss multiple games, but he's not likely to generate enough sacks or tackles to make waves in IDP leagues.
Gilberry (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Gilberry didn't practice Wednesday, but returned as a limited member on both Thursday and Friday, leaving his status up in the air ahead of this weekend's game versus the Packers. With Ziggy Ansah (ankle) out, the Lions could certainly use depth at defensive end, so they'll hope Gilberry's abdomen injury doesn't preclude him from being involved.
The Lions have signed Gilberry, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Gilberry, who was limited to 23 tackles and two sacks in 16 games for the Bengals last season, bolsters the Lions' defensive end depth, though his path to IDP relevance hinges on him securing his share of snaps at the position opposite Ziggy Ansah.
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (biceps) is active for Sunday's regular-season finale agains the Steelers after being listed as probable on the final injury report for Week 17.
The Bengals will also have five other probable players active for the game, including guard Clint Boling (illness), kicker Mike Nugent (illness), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (hamstring), linebacker Chris Carter (knee) and cornerback Darqueze Dennard (shin).
Four of the team's six questionable players are also active in Week 17, including cornerbacks Adam Jones (illness) and Chris Lewis-Harris (illness), safety Reggie Nelson (illness) and linebacker Emmanuel Lamur (hamstring).
Cincinnati is a 3 1/2-point underdog in Pittsburgh in Week 17.
