This week the Cincinnati Bengals made a handful of roster moves, mostly in response to losing Leon Hall for the rest of the season to an Achilles injury that he suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers. As a result the team promoted cornerback Brandon Ghee, a 2010 third round draft pick, from the practice squad. Additionally the team placed linebacker DeQuin Evans onto the practice squad injured list. The moves left two spots on the practice squad open.

On Tuesday, as Jason Garrison posted, the Bengals filled one spot with former Oakland Raiders cornerback Walter McFadden, who had been released off two teams' (Raiders, Jaguars) practice squads prior to signing with the Bengals on Tuesday.

That leaves one spot remaining.

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals held their usual Tuesday tryouts for free agents (one of which included McFadden). The tryouts also included cornerback John Bowie, defensive tackles Lamar Divens, DeMario Pressley and Jarron Gilbert and linebackers Brandon Williams and Bruce Davis

As of this posting, that one spot still remains.
