The Bengals today acquired K Austin Seibert on waivers from the Cleveland Browns and signed DE Amani Bledsoe to the active roster. In corresponding moves, the team placed G Xavier Su'a-Filo on the Reserve/Injured list and waived CB Torry McTyer.

Seibert (5-9, 214), a second-year pro out of the University of Oklahoma, originally was a fifth-round pick of the Browns in 2019. For his career, he is 25 of 30 (83.3 percent) on FGs and 30 of 36 (83.3) on PATs. He was waived by Cleveland on Monday.

Bledsoe (6-4, 280), a first-year pro out of the University of Oklahoma, joined the Bengals on Aug. 15 and then was signed to Cincinnati's practice squad after final cuts. He was elevated to the active roster on Saturday, as part of the Bengals' move to 55 players for game day, and then played in the season-opener (no statistics) before automatically reverting back to the practice squad yesterday.

Su'a-Filo, a seventh-year pro, suffered a left ankle injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Chargers. He had joined the Bengals in March as an unrestricted free agent, and started at RG in the opener.

McTyer, a fourth-year player out of the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, was inactive for Game 1 on Sunday. He had been with Cincinnati since Sept. 2 last season, when the Bengals signed him off of Kansas City's practice squad.
