The Bengals have signed free agent defensive back Demetrious Cox to the team’s practice squad.

Cox (6-0, 200), a second-year player out of Michigan State, entered the NFL in 2017 as a college free agent signee of Cincinnati. He spent the 2017 preseason with the Bengals before joining the Carolina Panthers. There, he totaled four tackles in four games played. He was most recently on Arizona’s practice squad.

Cox fills an open spot on the Bengals’ practice squad that was created when cornerback C.J. Goodwin was signed to the Dallas Cowboys’ 53-man roster yesterday.

The Bengals have been busy this week, also signing tight end Matt Lengel off the Texans’ practice squad. He joins the 53-man roster as Tyler Kroft is banged up ahead of the Bengals vs. Steelers Week 6 matchup. The Bengals waived running back Thomas Rawls to make room for Lengel. It’s also a return to Cincinnati for Lengel who spent time with the Bengals in the past before joining the Patriots and most recently the Texans.

Here’s a look at the Bengals’ current practice squad:
