Bengals Promote DT Khalil McKenzie, Place DE Amani Bledsoe On COVID-19 List


The Cincinnati Bengals announced Sunday that they’ve placed DE Amani Bledsoe on the COVID-19 list and promoted DT Kahlil McKenzie to their active roster. 

Kahlil McKenzie

McKenzie, 23, is a former sixth-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2018. He signed a four-year, $2.6 million contract with Kansas City, but was waived coming out of the preseason last year.

McKenzie later signed on to the Seahawks’ practice squad and spent the entire year on their taxi squad. He re-signed with Seattle on a one-year deal in April but was cut loose after a few months. 

From there, the Bengals signed McKenzie but waived him as they reduced their active roster to 53-players. He’s been on and off of their roster this season. 

He is the son of former Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie and also had a brief stint in the XFL. 

In 2020, McKenzie has been active for four games.
