The Bengals have released long snapper Tyler Ott. The Harvard product filled in for longtime Cincinnati snapper Clark Harris in Weeks 12-14 after the starter suffered a groin injury against the Bills.

Ott is a first year player who had previously played one game with the New York Giants. The Bengals added him to their practice squad on November 22nd and he was called to their active roster just a few days after. Harris returned to the lineup in Week 15 against the Steelers, with the team making Ott a gameday inactive.

In the three games Ott played, kicker Mike Nugent had a rough stretch of games that led to the team signing Randy Bullock. Nugent missed three extra points, with one of them coming off of a high Ott snap that Kevin Huber had trouble fielding.

Cincinnati now has an vacant spot that they will be looking to fill ahead of this week’s game against the Texans. It’s possible the team elevates a player off the practice squad to take the job.
