Stanley Morgan Jr. News

Signed to 53

Morgan was signed to the Bengals' active roster Saturday.

Analysis: Morgan has played on special teams in the two games he's been on the active roster for this season, but he did factor in marginally as a pass catcher last season. Expect the second-year wideout to continue acting as depth for his team.

Shifts back to practice squad

Morgan reverted to the Bengals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The 24-year-old made his second appearance of the season during a Week 13 matchup against the Dolphins, collecting two tackles over 19 special-teams snaps. Without experiencing any involvement on the offensive end, Morgan now shifts back to the practice squad as Cincinnati prepares for a Week 14 home game against the Cowboys.

Elevated to active roster

In COVID-19 protocol

The Bengals placed Morgan on the practice squad COVID-19 list Friday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Analysis: Morgan either tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person, and he'll need to pass the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to team activities.

Demoted to practice squad

Morgan reverted to the Bengals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Morgan fielded 20 special-teams snaps during a 36-10 loss to the Steelers on Sunday, though he did not provide any statistical contributions on the stat sheet otherwise. A Week 10 appearance marked the 24-year-old's first of 2020, after he suited up for 11 games in 2019 while recording three receptions for 18 yards.

Shifts to active roster

The Bengals elevated Morgan to the active roster Saturday, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Analysis: Morgan played 11 games for the Bengals last season, catching three of 10 targets for 18 yards on 146 offensive snaps. He's spent the entire season on Cincinnati's practice squad, but he'll get an opportunity Sunday versus the Steelers because John Ross (foot) is now on IR.

Secures practice-squad role

Morgan cleared waivers Sunday and signed with the Bengals' practice squad, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Analysis: The Bengals' receiver corps expanded and got healthy this offseason, so Morgan was cut Saturday. The group battled injuries during training camp though, and Morgan could be the first call-up if injuries surface again.

Lands on waiver wire

The Bengals waived Morgan on Saturday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Bengals have a deep wide-receiver corps since A.J. Green is healthy and they drafted Tee Higgins in the second round, so Morgan was the odd man out. The soon-to-be 24-year-old is a practice-squad candidate that could get the call if any Bengals wideout goes down.
