The Bengals today have waived OL Shaq Calhoun. In a corresponding move, they’ve signed OL Keaton Sutherland from the practice squad.
After the initial 53-man roster was set earlier this month, the Bengals made Calhoun, a second-year player, their only claim off of the waiver wire. He spent the first three weeks on the active roster but never played a down for the team.
Calhoun was originally waived by the Miami Dolphins during final cuts, as was Sutherland. A second-year player out of Texas A&M, Sutherland was originally a college free agent signee of the Bengals in 2019 and made the team’s practice squad for the first two weeks of that season. He was elevated for Week 3 and subsequently waived, giving Miami the chance to claim him. He spent the remainder of the year with the Dolphins.
Because he was signed from the practice squad, Sutherland must remain on the Bengals’ roster for at least the next three weeks. Considering the Bengals don’t have a definitive answer at the right guard position while Xavier Su’a-Filo recovers from an ankle injury, Sutherland could be whom they turn to next. As a reminder, he did play under Jim Turner at Texas A&M.
