Coming out of their bye week, the Bengals are getting one of their key defensive players back at practice.

Cincinnati announced on Monday that defensive tackle DJ Reader has been designated to return from injured reserve.

Reader suffered a knee injury during the Week Three win over the Jets. He has recorded 10 total tackles with three QB hits and a fumble recovery this season.

Last year, Reader had 43 total tackles, three tackles for loss, and 2.0 sacks in 15 games.

The Bengals have also cleared safety Brandon Wilson to return to practice from the physically unable to perform list. He was placed on it with a knee injury in late August.

Cincinnati will travel to Pittsburgh for the second 2022 matchup between the two teams in Week 11.

  1. I think the bungles have significantly less defensive talent than the Steelers. I can’t wait for us to demolish them this weekend. You don’t mess with the Steel City!

  2. Steelers are getting smacked this weekend.

    Yes that might happen but please don’t sulk, cry, and disappear if it doesn’t. As a Bengal fan you are accustomed to rebuilding….and rebuilding…and rebuilding. The Steelers have A rebuilding year….see the difference?

  3. There should be a rule where bungle fans shouldn’t be allowed to have a keyboard until they have as many superbowl trophies as us. Remind me again how many interceptions Joe Burrow threw the last time the Steelers crushed you? I think that Pickett is evolving into a much better quarterback than Burrow.

  4. Steel city about to get a taste of it this weekend. Stillers were lucky week one. Don’t expect that again.
