Schreck suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s 45-10 loss to Kansas City. He played in six of the Bengals’ seven games this season. Schreck, a second-year player, spent his entire rookie season on IR with a knee injury. The Bengals lost tight end Tyler Eifert to a season-ending ankle injury last month.

The Bengals signed linebacker Brandon Bell to the practice squad.
