Cincinnati Bengals issue first depth chart of preseason

·2 min read

The Cincinnati Bengals did some routine housekeeping before Week 1 of the preseason by issuing their first depth chart of the summer.

While it’s technically unofficial, it’s still a notable one as it’s the first since the playoffs last year. Fans shouldn’t be too shocked, however to find out there aren’t any major surprises on the chart, something that might not change well into the regular season.

Cincinnati’s first preseason game is on Friday night against the Arizona Cardinals. There, starters will rarely see the field, though a notable like first-rounder Dax Hill will play in place of Jessie Bates despite technically being behind him on the following depth chart.
