#Bengals placed CB Leon Hall on injured reserve and signed LB J.K. Schaffer from the practice squad. Released DE DeQuin Evans.

Targetted return @ Chargers Dec 1 then ? Tough go for Rey Rey, he has been playing much better this year.

Does JK Schaffer get the call ?

idk, we'd have to cut someone to promote him. I'm guessing Boley, Harrison and Vincent Rey will probably just get more snaps. If that fails then we'll probably look at promoting JK from the PS...

Id cut Ryan Whalen before Sanzenbacher. Whalen has been inactive most games

Damn. That sucks. We'll have to make room to bring in someone for depth. Whalen could be the guy who gets cut. I'm guessing we'll see Vinnie Rey in our base sets, and more Mays/Boley playing the other LB role in the nickel.

We'll be facing three teams that like to run the ball over our next three games too. Vinnie Rey is going to have to step up in big way. Maualuga has been great against the run...

As Villain eluded to, we're already thin at LB with the loss of Lamur. Here's to hoping Rey is able to come back after our week 12 bye.

Forgot that Whalen was even still on the roster. I agree...

I've not heard they're ready to activate him. They do have a few weeks to do so, IIRC. Some kind of roster exception. So the cut may not come for a few more weeks.

Yeah, if I had to choose between Sanzenbacher and Whalen to chop, it would be Whalen.

For me, Dane has shown enough to develop into a really useful reliable guy.....

Though, we have kept 7 WR's before now.....

A lot depends I guess on Sanu's status.....

Idk why we keep so many WRs. Gresham and Eifert could fill the role of a 5th receiver just fine. We are hurting at LB really bad, why not bring in another guy who can actually see the field

I'm gonna assume that Burfict moves to the middle for the time being, and either Vinnie Rey or Boley takes one of the outside spots. My guess is they go with Boley because of his experience. Vinnie might of been with the team longer, but I've noticed Boley play more on the defense than Vinnie has so far.

As much as I have hated Rey over the years, he has been fantastic this year. We are very thin at LB, and to lose him sucks. Never thought I would be sad to see Rey miss games

The coaches probably feel that the 6th WR brings more to the team than a FA LB who's never been in the system. And they're probably right.

I'm pretty sure Boley played his first defensive snap in the last game after Rey went out. But at the same time, i can't remember V. Rey playing any snaps so far. So...screwed either way. Laughing
