Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Larry Black will have to wait at least one more year before he’s able to fulfill his dreams of playing in the NFL after the team placed him on waivers today.

The undrafted free agent out of Indiana saw his season end far-too early after he suffered a dislocated ankle and broken leg last week, a scene that was emotionally featured on the premier of HBO’s Hard Knocks. Because the team placed him on waivers, he could still rejoin the team, rehab his injury, and come back healthy and ready to compete for a spot on the roster next season.

Here’s the release from Bengals public relations explaining the move:



The Bengals today released rookie DT Larry Black in the waived/injured category. If Black clears waivers he will revert to the Bengals’ reserve/injured list.


At Indiana, Black played in 48 career games while registering 127 tackles, eight sacks, 27.5 tackles-for-loss, two fumble recoveries and four passes batted down.
