A Bengals CFA signee in 2017, Tupou played in six games in his second season before a pectoral injury landed him on Reserve/Injured on Nov. 22 ... Saw action on 154 defensive plays, and totaled nine tackles ... Spent time on both the roster and practice squad as a rookie in 2017, and played in one game ... At 345 pounds, Tupou was tied for heaviest Bengal on the roster in 2018, and is considered a strong, run-stuffing presence along the interior of the defensive line.
Tupou Heads To IR As Front Seven Injuries Mount
The Bengals’ spate injuries along the front seven didn’t take Thanksgiving off. On Thursday the Bengals announced they put rotational nose tackle Josh Tupou on season-ending injured reserve with what is believed to be a torn pectoral muscle and plucked rookie nose tackle Niles Scott off the Denver practice squad to replace him.
Tupou Gives Bengals Two NTs for Steelers; Jackson Gets Nod
It must be Steelers Sunday. With an eye to keeping in check the Pittsburgh running game that has dominated this series, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis opted to suit up two nose tackles when he traded out Adolphus Washington for Josh Tupou on the inactive lost before Sunday’s game at Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals got one to fall their way when starting cornerback William Jackson (knee), designated questionable on Friday after being limited much of the week, got the start.
Bengals Keep Tate, Schreck and Tupou, But Roster In Flux
The Bengals came out of Saturday’s cut even younger than last year, but for how long as they continue to adjust the roster through the weekend and eye finalizing it Sunday in preparation for the Sept. 9 opener (Cincinnati’s Channel 12, 1 p.m.) in Indianapolis. The Bengals had to cut to 53 players by 4 p.m. Saturday, but a spate of injuries is apparently going to force them to re-adjust the roster by 4 p.m. Sunday. Two players who missed the last two games with injuries, wide receiver Cody Core (back) and rookie cornerback Davontae Harris (knee) both made it but may be candidates to go on injured reserve Sunday so they can be eligible for recall midway through the season.
Hobson's Choice: walking the line in the draft
Bengaldom hopes their team walked the line well in last week's NFL Draft. They went offensive line in the first round and then in the last round. Mississippi's Rod Taylor waited a long time to get picked, but he may have enough versatility to stay around longer than that.
Baker looking to re-capture top grades
The Bengals are looking to re-sign a handful of their own players when free agency starts next week, but they’ve been active looking at veterans already on the market that they think can help them shore up some weaknesses. The agent for vet defensive tackle Chris Baker says he's signed up.
Titans finish what Bengals can't
NASHVILLE - This one cut them deep because Sunday’s final-minute 24-20 loss to the Titans was one the Bengals really should have had. The offense finally re-discovered the big play and torched a Tennessee defense leading the NFL in fewest passes of 20-plus yards allowed with quarterback Andy Dalton’s two long touchdown throws and the defense turned to an emerging new cast of characters and blanked the Titans for all but the final 36 seconds of the second half without ejected captain Vontaze Burfict.
Titans catch Bengals in last minute
NASHVILLE - Facing a third-and-seven for a touchdown and the Bengals trying to hold the Titans to a game-tying field goal, Titans running back DeMarco Murray caught a check-down pass from quarterback Marcus Mariota on the 2 and he powered past cornerback Darqueze Dennard, safety Clayton Fejedelem, and got the ball underneath linebacker Vincent Rey for a touchdown with 36 seconds left that gave Tennessee a 24-20 victory.
Bengals split on injuries on eve of cuts
That sound is Bengaldom exhaling with initial reports that wide receiver John Ross’ right knee injury that he suffered in Thursday’s pre-season finale isn’t serious. So it looks like seven wide receivers still have a chance to make Saturday's cut to 53. One last look at the roster.
Final bow with a kick
INDIANAPOLIS - The kicking competition, of course, is the most intriguing roster storyline of them all for Thursday’s pre-season finale (7 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 12) against the Colts. But the last five or so spots are about as jumbled as they’ve been in several seasons pending suspensions, injuries, and tight position battles.
