The Bengals today made the following roster moves:

Activated OT Cedric Ogbuehi (“o-BWAY-hee”) to the roster from the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. Ogbuehi is a rookie from Texas A&M, the Bengals’ first-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft. It was known at the time of his selection that a knee injury he suffered in his final college game would delay his readiness to play in 2015. Ogbuehi has been participating in practices since Nov. 10.

Placed CB Darqueze Dennard on the Reserve/Injured list. Dennard, a Bengals first-round draft choice in 2014, suffered a shoulder separation in this past Sunday’s game at Arizona. He played in this season’s first 10 games and had 16 tackles, one INT and three total passes defensed.
