After signing 14 players to their practice squad on Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals had two vacant spots left to fill.
One of those spots will belong to offensive lineman Keaton Sutherland, per ESPN’s Ben Baby.
OL Keaton Sutherland is joining the Bengals practice squad, per source. Was also in Cincinnati at the beginning of last season. Played for Bengals OL coach Jim Turner at Texas A&M.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) September 7, 2020
Sutherland originally signed with the Bengals as a college free agent after the 2019 NFL Draft. He played college football at Texas A&M and was coached by Jim Turner, the Bengals’ current offensive line coach.
The Bengals waived Sutherland during final cuts last year, but added him to their practice squad after he cleared waivers. He was elevated to the active roster for their Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills; playing three special teams snaps. The next week, Sutherland was waived by the Bengals again and claimed by the Miami Dolphins. He started one game at left guard and one at right guard for the Dolphins, as well as appearing in a third game.
Sutherland was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday, and now he’s coming back to Cincinnati.
