Cincinnati Bengals lose Darqueze Dennard for the season; Activate OT Cedric Ogbuehi from NFI
Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard needs shoulder surgery and will miss the rest of the season. The Bengals will place him on the injured reserve ending his season and in a corresponding move the Bengals are activating first-round OT Cedric Ogbuehi off the non-football injury list.
Dennard started Sunday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals in place of cornerback Adam Jones, who was inactive with a foot injury.
Dennard was forced out of the game with a shoulder injury he suffered while attempting to tackle Cardinals receiver John Brown in the end zone as Brown caught a third-quarter touchdown pass.
During his final year at Texas A&M, Ogbuehi sustained a torn ACL, but he could end up being a great long-term investment for the Cincinnati Bengals at a premium position.
