New, comments

The Bengals have already made many changes to their original 53-man roster. Here’s the updated roster as of Sunday afternoon, one week from the start of the 2016 regulars season.

Here is the Bengals’ 53-man roster after Sunday’s moves including placing William Jackson III and Cedric Peerman on Injured Reserve, waiving P.J. Dawson, claiming Jeff Driskel on waivers, and signing Chykie Brown and Trey Hopkins, both of whom were released on Saturday. The Bengals now have 10 offensive lineman and 10 defensive backs on the roster while only have eight defensive lineman. The roster could continue to evolve as we inch closer to the 2016 season, which is just one week away!
