We’ve already had some changes, as linebacker Hardy Nickerson and offensive tackle Wyatt Miller have been added to the practice squad. So for now, the squad is full as the team enters Week 1 of the 2019 season.

The Cincinnati Bengals have signed nine players to their 2019 practice squad.

While there will undoubtedly be more moves made soon, especially with two vacancies, here is what the initial squad looks like:

  • TE Moritz Böhringer (first-year player, Aalen [Germany])
  • CB Anthony Chesley (rookie, Coastal Carolina)
  • LB Noah Dawkins (rookie, The Citadel)
  • HB Jordan Ellis (rookie, Virginia)
  • TE Jordan Franks (second-year player, Central Florida)
  • S Trayvon Henderson (second-year player, Hawaii)
  • WR Stanley Morgan (rookie, Nebraska)
  • TE Mason Schreck (third-year player, Buffalo)
  • G Keaton Sutherland (rookie, Texas A&M)

All of the players signed to the Bengals’ practice squad today were with the team in preseason.

An NFL practice squad may include up to 10 players, though the Bengals may have up to 11 with TE Mortiz Böhringer, who is an International Player Pathway program participant and is eligible to be added as an 11th practice squad player. Thus, the Bengals currently have two open practice squad spots.
