NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals have announced their initial 53-man roster.


A 53-man roster must be submitted by every team to the NFL by 4:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, September 1.

Simultaneously with the cut-down to 53, clubs that have players in the categories of Active/Physically Unable to Perform or Active/Non-Football Injury or Illness must select one of the following options: place those player on Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform or Reserve/Non-Football Injury or Illness, whichever is applicable. Teams can also send a player to waivers, terminate their contract, trade them, or count the player on the 53-man roster. At that time, teams must also put any players suspended for Week 1 on the Reserve/Suspended list. The Bengals will place Vontaze Burfict on this list on Saturday, he will not count toward the 53-man roster (get our latest roster projection here).

The practice squad will be announced approximately at or after 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. The Bengals can place up to 11 guys on the practice squad this year due to getting a roster exemption via the International Player Pathway Program, making German WR/TE Moritz Boehringer a freebie addition to the practice squad.

Lots of cuts are coming around the league!
