Hudson is classified as standard elevation. As a practice squad player elevated to the active roster, he will automatically revert to the practice squad on Monday.
However, with the Bengals being dangerously thin at tight end and no one really standing out in the offense, Hudson is likely on the verge of being signed to the 53-man roster if he has another solid outing Sunday.
And if Irv Smith Jr. can’t stay healthy, don’t be surprised if Hudson eventually makes his way into the starting lineup. He certainly was the Bengals’ most consistent tight end through the preseason, though a concussion cost him several weeks of action and likely a spot on the initial 53-man roster.
Let’s hope Hudson finally can show what he’s truly made of.
