The Cincinnati Bengals are back to a 10-man practice squad.

On Wednesday, the Bengals signed safety Robenson Therezie to the practice squad, filling the void left by Josh Tupou joining the 53-man roster over the weekend.

Therezie, who weighs in at 5’9” and 212 pounds, is a third-year player who originally signed with the Atlanta Falcons as a college free agent out of Auburn in 2015. He spent his rookie season with Atlanta and his second season with both the Falcons and the New Orleans Saints, though he has not been with a team during the regular season this year.

The safety has played in 25 games with two starts — all with the Falcons — and recorded 32 tackles, one interception and two passes defensed on defense, as well as four tackles (three solo) on special teams.

The Bengals have been thin at safety in recent weeks thanks to injuries to Shawn Williams and Brandon Wilson. Williams did return to practice on Wednesday after missing time with a hamstring injury, but it still makes sense to have more safety depth on the practice squad in case of another injury.
