The Bengals have cleared RB Chase Brown to practice by designating him for return from IR.
They also signed QB Drew Plitt to the practice squad and placed OL Jaxson Kirkland on the Practice Squad Injured list.
While normally this may not be all that important of a story in terms of fantasy, the Bengals sit at 5-5 and just lost franchise QB Joe Burrow for the remainder of the season. It's possible the Bengals see what they have in some of their younger players, and this could be especially be true at the RB position where the team has some youth behind Mixon - who is 27 but getting up there in age in terms of RBs. Brown may be worth a stash in deeper leagues.
