The Bengals still have to release six more players by Tuesday at 4 p.m. to get to 75 players after letting go six on Sunday to get to 81.

They terminated the contract of fifth-year tight end Richard Quinn, releasing him to free agency, and put five others on waivers.

Also released were first-year defensive tackle player Vaughn Meatoga, as well as four undrafted rookies.

Headed to the waiver wire with Meatoga are wide receiver Jheranie Boyd of North Carolina, cornerback Terrence Brown of Stanford, linebacker Jordan Campbell of New Mexico Highlands and kicker-punter Quinn Sharp of Oklahoma State.

Sharp had a solid preseason as a kicker and made a 28-yard field goal Saturday night against the Cowboys to go with a 47-yarder he made in Atlanta in the opener. He didn't kick off Saturday but had six touchbacks in the previous two games.

    The Bengals got some good news when they returned to the practice field Saturday morning at Paul Brown Stadium and SAM linebacker Emmanuel Lamur was in the stretching line with his helmet. Lamur, who left Sunday’s game in Cleveland with a hamstring injury, was limited and classified as doubtful, but it looks like he’s got a chance to play Monday (8:30 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 5 and ESPN) against Denver.

  • Matchup of the Game: greatness stands between Bengals and playoffs

    Vincent Rey is a smart man. He’s got his degree from Duke University, he’s a scholar athlete from the College Football Hall of Fame, and the Bengals just tapped him as their Man of the Year nominee for this year‘s Walter Payton Award. So he knows it’s a bit backward to declare before Monday night’s game (8:30-Cincinnati’s Channel 5 and ESPN) against one of the greatest quarterbacks who ever lived that the key is shutting down the run. Madness, right? No one dead or alive has thrown more TD passes than Peyton Manning.
