The Bengals today made the following player moves:
*Cleared G Xavier Su'a-Filo to return to practice by designating him for return from the Reserve/Injured list. Su'a-Filo had been on the Reserve/Injured list since Sept. 15 with left ankle injury that he suffered in Game 1 vs. the L.A. Chargers. Today starts a 21-day period during which Su'a-Filo may practice with the team without counting against the 53-player active roster. He is eligible to be activated to the roster at any time during that period.
*Activated LB Jordan Evans and CB Mackensie Alexander off of the Covid-19 list, and placed practice squad CB Winston Rose on the Reserve/Covid-19 list. The Bengals currently have four players on Reserve/Covid-19: Rose, DT Margus Hunt, OT Fred Johnson and CB Trae Waynes.
*Signed OT O'Shea Dugas to the practice squad. Dugas (6-4, 335), a second-year player out of Louisiana Tech, originally was a college free agent signee of the Bengals in 2019. He spent all 16 games last season on Reserve/Injured, due to a knee injury suffered in preseason, and then was waived at final cuts this season.
