NFL Roster Cuts: Updated Bengals Cut List

This figures to be dwindled down all at once soon. But here's what we know so far.

The Cincinnati Bengals ended the preseason with a 27-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts, requiring 22 moves on the roster to get within the league mandated 53-man roster by Saturday's 6 p.m. deadline.

At this point, we know of nine that (or are rumored to be) being made. We'll update this post as a general catch-all as more rumored transactions take place.

LB Emmanuel Lamur: Expected to go on Injured Reserve after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. Once Lamur is officially placed on season-ending IR, it's one less move that the Bengals will have to make.

DE DeQuin Evans: Placed on suspension after a second violation of the league's policy on performance enhancing substances. Will count as a roster exemption.

FB John Conner: Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer sent out a tweet Saturday morning that Conner was informed that he didn't make the 53-man roster.

WR Cobi Hamilton: Geoff Hobson with reported that the rookie wide receiver was being waived. If he clears waivers, the team will most likely sign him to the practice squad.

LB J.K. Schaffer: Will go through waivers after the linebacker was unexpectedly released -- unexpected because he was projected as the sixth linebacker. A likely practice squad candidate if he clears waivers. He has since confirmed the release.

OT Dennis Roland: According to PFT, the Bengals released Roland.

RB Dan Herron: According to PFT, the Bengals released Herron, who is eligible for the practice squad if he clears waivers.

LB Bruce Taylor: According to Aaron Wilson with National Football Post, the Bengals released rookie linebacker Bruce Taylor.

RB Bernard Scott: We have reservations to add obvious transactions (otherwise we'd include ten more), but it's clear that Scott will either transition to the in-season PUP list, IR, or be released.
