It’s cutdown day for the Cincinnati Bengals,
Along with every other team, Cincinnati have until 4:00 pm EST on Aug. 31 to trim their roster down to 53 active players. Since the Bengals don’t have any player currently on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list or the Active/Non-Football Injury list, they do not have to place any players on those respective reserve lists at this time.
However, the Bengals do have several players injured that could go on IR, including offensive tackle Hakeem Adeniji, defensive end Wyatt Hubert, and defensive end Joseph Ossai. If they’re kept on the initial 53-man roster, they can get the IR-return designation later in the season if they’re healed. But if they hit IR before 4 pm, they’re out for the 2021 season.
Once players are placed on waivers, they’re eligible to be claimed by teams until 4 pm ET on Sept. 1. After that, the waived players who go unclaimed are eligible to be signed as free agents or to practice squads.
Use this to keep track of the Bengals’ moves!
