Among the moves likely to be made Tuesday will be placing defensive tackle Brandon Thompson on the Physically Unable to Perform list as he continues to recover from the torn ACL he suffered in last year’s season finale.
If the Bengals elect to clear space by placing a player on Injured Reserve, that player would not be eligible for the designation to return. Only players who make the final 53, which will be announced Saturday, can be considered for the designation to return.
