The Cincinnati Bengals have made their final roster moves before going on the road to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

DE Sam Hubbard has been activated from the Reserve/Injured list. Hubbard, a third-year player out of Ohio State, had been on Reserve/Injured since October 15th with an elbow injury that he suffered in Week 5 against the Baltimore Ravens. He was cleared to return to practice on Tuesday. Sunday will be Hubbard’s sixth game of the 2020 season.

CB Darius Phillips and WR John Ross III have been placed on the Reserve/Injured list. Phillips, a third-year player out of Western Michigan, suffered a groin injury in Week 8 against the Tennessee Titans. Ross, a fourth-year player out of the University of Washington, suffered a foot injury in practice on Thursday while the team was reportedly using him at cornerback.

WR Stanley Morgan, CB Jalen Davis, G Quinton Spain, and DT Kahlil McKenzie have been elevated from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. Morgan and Davis are classified as standard elevations, while Spain and McKenzie are COVID-19 replacements for OT Fred Johnson and DT Margus Hunt. As practice squad players being elevated to the active roster for the game, all four players automatically will revert to the practice squad on Monday.

These moves put the Bengals at 55 players on the active roster, which means they’ll have seven players listed as inactive on Sunday.
