They can either activate him to the 53-man roster, place him on season-ending Injured Reserve or release him. The exemption status runs out after the Nov. 27 home game against Cleveland.

The task seemed overwhelming at first. The Cincinnati Bengals were trying to teach an entirely new offense to a group led by a rookie receiver, with only two weeks to go before the first preseason game.
Everyone expected a rough start. A 6-2 mark at the season's halfway point? Dream on.
''I think it's definitely better than anybody would have expected it to have...
We would have liked to wait until after the Baltimore game on Nov. 20 before evaluating the postseason, but the fact that the Bengals have won five straight and are tied for the best record in the AFC has moved that timetable up a bit.
Even the folks at numberFire, who are doing a weekly playoff predictor on ESPN.com, have the Bengals in the postseason with the AFC’s sixth seed...
The Steelers face off against the Cincinnati Bengals this week to try and get back in the hunt for the division lead. This is a big game for both teams. The Bengals are playing their first real big game of the season. They played San Francisco early before they got rolling and beat the Buffalo Bills on a late field goal. This game versus the Steelers will tell the tale for...
Here is what Bengals fans can expect to encounter this weekend when the black and gold come to town. Beware the mouth breathing mongoloid. What sad and miserable people they are. Whats the bet that none of them live in or near Pittsburgh?
