The Bengals acquired DE Takkarist McKinley on waivers from the Atlanta Falcons.

McKinley (6-2, 265), a fourth-year player out of UCLA, originally was a first-round draft pick of the Falcons in 2017. He has played in 49 career games, and has 76 tackles, 17.5 sacks, two passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. The Falcons waived him yesterday.

In addition, the Bengals today placed practice squad CB Brian Allen on the Reserve/Covid-19 list.
