With those players out, here’s what the 53-man roster looks like right now:

Quarterback (3)

  • Andy Dalton
  • Ryan Finley
  • Jake Dolegala

Running back (3)

  • Joe Mixon
  • Giovani Bernard
  • Trayveon Williams

Wide receiver (7)

  • A.J. Green
  • Tyler Boyd
  • John Ross
  • Alex Erickson
  • Damion Willis
  • Auden Tate
  • Josh Malone

Tight end (4)

  • C.J. Uzomah
  • Tyler Eifert
  • Drew Sample
  • Cethan Carter

Offensive line (8)

  • Cordy Glenn
  • Michael Jordan
  • Trey Hopkins
  • John Miller
  • Bobby Hart
  • Andre Smith
  • Billy Price
  • O’Shea Dugas

Defensive line (11)

  • Carlos Dunlap
  • Geno Atkins
  • Andrew Billings
  • Sam Hubbard
  • Carl Lawson
  • Ryan Glasgow
  • Josh Tupou
  • Andrew Brown
  • Renell Wren
  • Kerry Wynn
  • Jordan Willis

Linebacker (5)

  • Nick Vigil
  • Preston Brown
  • Jordan Evans
  • Germaine Pratt
  • Hardy Nickerson

Cornerback (5)

  • William Jackson III
  • Dre Kirkpatrick
  • B.W. Webb
  • Darius Phillips
  • Tony McRae

Safety (4)

  • Jessie Bates III
  • Shawn Williams
  • Clayton Fejedelem
  • Brandon Wilson

Specialists (3)

  • Clark Harris
  • Kevin Huber
  • Randy Bullock

Some of these players will not remain on the roster in the coming days, as potential acquisitions for an offensive lineman or a linebacker could very well be made. If that’s the case, then expect a defensive lineman to get cut, as it’s unusual for most teams to carry more than 10.

The Bengals will now begin the process of putting together their practice squad. With Moritz Bohringer counting as a part of the NFL’s International Player Development Program, 11 players, including Bohringer, can be kept. We’ve seen reports that Keaton Sutherland and Ventell Bryant are guys that the team is planning on bringing back to the practice squad, but they need to clear waivers first.

For now, this is your 2019 Bengals roster. Who dey!
