The Cincinnati Bengals made one roster move earlier today by signing free agent offensive tackle Dennis Roland to replace left guard Clint Boling, who was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list due to a torn ACL suffered on Sunday.
They’ve made another move, but this was a practice squad move:
@Bengals cut DE Whiteside from PS and add C Scott Wedige. Wedige was here briefly last season on PS before going to Cards roster

As Geoff noted, Wedige has previous stintsa with the Bengals.
After the 2012 NFL Draft concluded,, Wedige signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent, but was eventually let go during the final wave of roster cuts. That same season, he was signed with the New York Giants to join the practice squad, but was cut from it two weeks later.
That’s when The Bengals signed him to their PS, but he was eventually signed to the Cardinals’ 53-man roster, and he would spend the next year with the team until he was cut in August of this year.
After that, he was signed by the New York Jets, but was eventually cut, and now he’s back on the Bengals PS.
Whiteside, a first-year player from Abilene Christian, opened training camp with the Chicago Bears and started one preseason game before eventually being cut.
