The Bengals have placed left guard Travelle Wharton and four others on the injured reserve list, ending their seasons.
Wharton severely damaged his right knee on Cincinnati's first series of the preseason opener against the Jets, forcing him to leave the field on a cart.
In addition, the Bengals put cornerback Brandon Ghee (wrist), cornerback Shaun Prater (knee), receiver/cornerback Taveon Rogers (shoulder) and safety Robert Sands (chest) on the injury list Friday. None was a starter.
Cincinnati also waived defensive end Luke Black, halfback Aaron Brown, quarterback Tyler Hansen and guard Matt Murphy, leaving them with 76 players. They have to get down to 75 players by Monday.

Any hopes of DE Jonathan Fanene being able to contribute this season looked to have been dashed when he injured his knee early in training camp, and hadn't been able to recover from it. It's a tough break for the player and the team because he's a tough SOB that would've fit quite well in the Patriots rotation.
"Just didn't work out," head coach...
What gets BC excited about the Canadian Football League? Not much. It is funny, however, to look at CFL rosters, where they list guys as “Imports” or “Non-Imports.” Anyway, let’s get to this huge hit in the Week 9 game featuring Montreal vs. Hamilton. QB Henry Burris, still a legend up north, launches a pass that is picked off.
That’s bad news for his teammate, Onrea...
Former Bengals running back Cedric Benson returned to his old stomping grounds with his new team, the Green Bay Packers, and had a great time seeing all of his old teammates again, and they did too. And we bet they miss him already. He also got to see for the first time, the visitor's locker room.
“It felt good,” Benson told the Cincinnati Inquirer.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was just 5-for-17 for 40 yards against Green Bay in what was likely his final tuneup before the season begins.Fantasy Spin:Dalton hasn't done much in preseason and to date none of the other Bengals' receivers have stepped up to help out A.J. Green. Dalton had a fine rookie season (3,398 yards, 20 TDs, 13 INTs) and we expect improvement in Year...
According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick will get on the field and play in his first NFL game during their final preseason game next week.

The Bengals have been hit pretty hard with injuries this preseason. Hopefully they’ll get some guys...
Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada’s domestic dispute rightfully threw a wrench in Johnson’s future NFL career.
Johnson’s alleged violence against Lozada shows how troubled the former Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver is. His bad and potentially destructive choices would distract an NFL team and the positive community culture it wants to cultivate.
Johnson allegedly head-butted...
Sure it doesn’t have the glitz, glamor or popularity of the NFL, but the CFL does feature some pretty good players capable of pulling off some pretty terrific plays, as evidenced by this mammoth, decleater of a block delivered by Alouettes safety Kyries Hebert on Tiger-Cats receiver Onrea Jones following a Henry Burris pick.
Jones’ focus is squarely on the Als’ Jerald Brown...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers ran everywhere, including the end zone. Twice.
The MVP quarterback led Green Bay to a big first half Thursday night, running for 52 yards and two touchdowns during a 27-13 preseason victory that got the Packers' offense moving at full speed.
The Packers (No. 1 in the AP Pro32) wanted to look crisp coming off a drubbing by Cleveland. Rodgers...
