The Cincinnati Bengals have made several practice squad changes this week.

On Tuesday, the team signed offensive guard Shaq Calhoun to the practice squad. He was previously on the 53-man roster.

Then on Wednesday, the Bengals signed linebacker Kendall Donnerson to the practice squad and released offensive tackle Josh Knipfel from the squad. The Donnerson is likely being made because Logan Wilson has a concussion and may miss Week 4 vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Donnerson (6-2, 248), a first-year player out of Southeast Missouri State, was originally a seventh-round pick (248th overall) of the Green Bay Packers in 2018. He spent his rookie season with the Packers before joining the Raiders in 2019. He was waived by Las Vegas on May. 6.

Calhoun (6-3, 310), a second-year player out of Mississippi State University, was originally a college free agent signee of the Miami Dolphins in 2019. He played in 10 games (7 starts) for the Dolphins as a rookie, then joined the Bengals on waivers on Sept. 6 of this season. He did not play in Games 1-3 before being waived.

Knipfel, a rookie out of Iowa State University, was a college free agent signee of the Bengals in April and spent the first three games on Cincinnati’s practice squad.
