The Bengals have officially ended the season for tight ends Ben Utecht and Matt Sherry, according to a press release from the team.
Utecht, who suffered a concussion on Aug. 5 in training camp, has been put on the Reserve/Injured list. Sherry injured his shoulder in camp Aug. 10 and has been released via the waived/injured category.
If Sherry clears waivers Tuesday, Sept. 1, he will revert to the Bengals’ Reserve/Injured list. The moves reduce the Bengals roster to 75 players, in advance of the league-mandated cut to 75 on Sept. 1.
The Bengals’ top tight ends on the roster now are rookie Chase Coffman and third-year player Daniel Coats.
