The Bengals made three roster moves today to get to the 75-man limit ahead of the 4 p.m. deadline.
The team placed tackle and first-round draft pick Cedric Ogbuehi on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list and put linebacker Sean Porter on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list. That means both players will miss at least the first six games of the regular season.
After Week 6, the team will have a five-week window in which to allow the players to begin practicing or else they will be placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured list. If a player returns to practice, the team has three weeks to activate him to the 53-man roster or else he will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
The Bengals also released wide receiver Onterio McCalebb under the Waived/Injured category, which means if he clears waivers he will be placed on the team's Reserve/Injured list for the rest of the 2015 season.
The team will have to trim the roster to 53 by 4 p.m. Saturday.
