The Bengals also promoted rookie tight end Darius Hill, who had been on their practice squad since Sept. 6. Hill is an undrafted player from Ball State who signed with Cincinnati in May and played in all four preseason games.

Rookie tight end Carson Butler took Hill's spot on the practice squad. The undrafted free agent from Michigan originally signed with the Green Bay Packers and was waived. He played in all four of the Detroit Lions' preseason games before being waived. He was on the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad for one week.
