Ahead of Sunday’s clash with the Baltimore Ravens, the Cincinnati Bengals have released their first regular-season depth chart.

This is the first depth chart update since the first week of the preseason, long before final cuts were made. That’s why you’ll see a lot less names on the new depth chart, as well as some shifting among the backup spots. You’ll also notice that players serving suspensions are not listed on the depth chart.
