The Cincinnati Bengals announced three roster moves, the most notable being the signing of quarterback Drew Plitt to the practice squad.
The Bengals also cleared running back Chase Brown to practice by designating him for return from injured reserve.
Finally, guard Jaxson Kirkland has been placed on the practice squad injured reserve list. Kirkland, a rookie out of Washington, has a wrist injury that will sideline him for a bit.
Brown, a fifth-round rookie out of Illinois, has been on IR since October 28th with a hamstring injury. Monday starts a 21-day period during which he may practice with the team without counting against the 53-player active roster. He is eligible to be activated to the 53-man roster at any time during that period.
Plitt, a first-year player out of Ball State, was a college free agent signee of the Bengals in 2022. He played in two preseason games for Cincinnati in 2022 before being waived and was not with an NFL team during the 2022 regular season or the 2023 offseason. Plitt went on to play in five games for the Arlington Renegades of the XFL during the 2023 season.
