The Bengals weren't getting much production from their offense Thursday night vs. the Colts, so receiver Dane Sanzenbacher took it upon himself to make something on special teams.

With the Bengals leading 7-0 early in the third quarter, Cincinnati's defense forced another Colts punt after Margus hunt sacked Colts QB Chandler Harnish for the second time of the game.

On the ensuing punt, Sanzenbacher lined up at punt returner in place of Brandon Tate, and proceeded to take it all the way to the end zone for six.

H/T to Fansided for the GIF.

Dane was already a near-lock for the roster, but that play ended any doubt he won't be on the final 53-man roster come Saturday evening when final cuts are made.

With Marvin Jones dealing with a foot injury, Dane could be in for more playing time at receiver as well this year. He'll at least be active for most, if not every game this season that he's healthy.
