According to Jim Owczarski, the Bengals have designated RB Cedric Peerman as their player to return from the team’s injured reserve.
The Bengals will now have three weeks to activate Peerman.
Cincinnati placed Peerman on injured reserve with an arm injury back in September, while first-round CB William Jackson III was also in contention to come off the list.
Peerman, 30, is a former sixth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2009. He was later claimed off of waivers by the Browns and has since played for the Lions and Bengals. He is in the final year of a two-year, $2.13 million contract that included a $250,000 signing bonus.
In 2015, Peerman was active for all 16 games for the Bengals but did not record any offensive statistics. He only was able to record 40 kickoff return yards that season.
