With the Bengals’ offensive line getting more depleted as the weeks go on, the team is adding a practice squad body.
On Tuesday, the team signed offensive guard Keaton Sutherland from the practice squad. To make room on the 53-man roster, the Bengals waived wide receiver Pharoh Cooper.
In addition, the team signed offensive tackle Dino Boyd to the practice squad, filling the spot created by Sutherland’s move to the active roster.
Sutherland, who measures in at 6-5, 316 pounds, is a rookie out of Texas A&M who originally signed as a college free agent with the Bengals in May. He played in all four preseason games for Cincinnati, with a start at center in the finale vs. the Colts.
In college, Sutherland played in 44 games (33 starts) over four seasons (2015-18) at Texas A&M, and saw action at both tackle and guard under offensive line coach Jim Turner, who now works for the Bengals.
Cooper, a fourth-year player, had been acquired on waivers from the Cardinals on Sept. 1. He played in one game for the Bengals with no recorded statistics.
Boyd, who weighs in at 6-4, 300 pounds, is a rookie out of the University of Cincinnati. He originally signed as a college free agent with the Chiefs in May. He was with the Chiefs through preseason, then was waived on final cuts.
