Bengals bring back OT Dennis Roland

The Bengals brought back offensive tackle Dennis Roland on

Tuesday, adding to their depth on their injury-depleted line.

Left guard Clint Boling tore the anterior cruciate ligament in

his right knee during a 17-10 victory in San Diego on Sunday. The

Bengals put him on injured reserve Tuesday.

Cincinnati is considering sliding left tackle Andrew Whitworth

into Boling’s spot and using Anthony Collins at left tackle, his

best position. The Bengals (8-4) host the Colts (8-4) on Sunday.

Indianapolis can clinch the AFC South championship with a win on

Sunday or a Tennessee loss.

Roland has played for the Bengals since 2008. He played in the

first three games this season and was released on Sept. 25. He

re-signed with Cincinnati as a free agent.

The Bengals also made a move with their practice squad, signing

center Scott Wedige of Northern Illinois. He was on Cincinnati’s

practice squad for three weeks last season.

Arizona signed Wedige for the last five weeks of the season and

he played in two games. He opened camp with the Cardinals and was

claimed off waivers by the Giants on Aug. 20. They waived him three

days later.

The Bengals released defensive end Aston Whiteside from the

practice squad. Whiteside, from Abilene Christian. Whiteside had

been on their practice squad since Nov. 11.
