Bengals make roster moves ahead of Saturday’s playoff game vs. Raiders

By Chris Roling

The Cincinnati Bengals have put in a few housekeeping moves before Saturday’s playoff game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Friday, the team announced the elevations of defensive tackle Mike Daniels and wide receiver Trent Taylor to the active roster for the wild-card round game.

Daniels got the nod as an elevation a week ago during the loss to the Browns and was a standout, so he’s a no-brainer of an elevation again this week with Josh Tupou’s injury impacting the depth of the interior defensive line.

As for Taylor, he’ll again take up a role on returns with Darius Phillips and others out of the spot.

Both Daniels and Taylor will revert to the practice squad after the game automatically. This should do it for roster moves by the team until they announce inactives Saturday afternoon, though there shouldn’t be any surprises there with Tee Higgins and others checking out just fine on the final injury report.
