The Bengals announced Monday that they have released fifth-year LB Rashad Jeanty in the “waived/failed physical” category and placed second-year S Tom Nelson on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list. The moves reduced the team’s roster to 75 players, one day in advance of the NFL deadline for a reduction to 75.
Nelson will continue to rehabilitate his left knee after offseason surgery. Beginning with Week Seven of the regular season, the Bengals will have a three-week window in which Nelson may practice with the team, and by the end of that window Nelson must be added to the roster, placed on I.R. for the remainder of the season or released.
