  • Brandon Wilson: Signing with Indianapolis

    The Colts signed Wilson to their practice squad Wednesday.

    Wilson missed all of last season while recovering from a torn ACL but will now get an opportunity with the Colts. The 29-year-old can provide solid depth in the secondary if called upon, as starting safety Rodney Thomas is currently dealing with a knee injury.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Won't return in 2022

    Wilson (knee) has reverted to the Bengals' reserve/PUP list for the remainder of the 2022 season, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    Wilson opened the regular season on the reserve/PUP list while recovering from a torn ACL suffered in Week 9 of the 2021 season, and he was designated to return to practice Nov. 14. However, he was not restored to the active roster within his 21-day return window, so he will now remain on the PUP list for the remainder of the 2022 campaign. Wilson will now shift his focus toward recovering before he hits free agency this coming offseason. The strong safety recorded 291 kick return yards before tearing his ACL last season, and his absence should leave Chris Evans and Trent Taylor to continue handling kick returns for Cincinnati moving forward.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Sticks with Bengals

    Wilson agreed Tuesday with the Bengals on a two-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    A 2017 sixth-round pick, Wilson has mostly made a name for himself on special teams, taking 45 kick returns for 1,251 yards (27.8 average) and two touchdowns. He made two starts at safety in 2019, but he's played far more snaps on special teams (895) than defense (300) through 51 regular-season appearances.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Officially active Monday

    Wilson (groin) is active for Monday's game versus the Steelers, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Sitting down Week 14

    Wilson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Wilson was able to power through a hamstring issue to make his 12th appearance of the season last Sunday in Miami, though Alex Erickson brought back the team's lone kick-return attempt. A groin injury kept Wilson as a DNP all throughout the practice week, however, and now he'll be forced to miss his first game of 2020. Down one of the NFL's most explosive returners for Week 14, Cincinnati will lean on the veteran Erickson.

The 26-year-old ranks third in the NFL with 571 kickoff return yards, standing behind Cordarrelle Patterson and Andre Roberts in that category entering Week 13.
