It appears as if Jeremy Hill has played his last game with the Cincinnati Bengals after the team placed him on season-ending Injured Reserve on Saturday.

Hill, who is in the final year of his contract, suffered an ankle injury the walk-through last Saturday and was inactive for the 23-7 loss at Jacksonville.

He did not practice this week, and with Giovani Bernard signed through 2019 and Joe Mixon through 2020, it’s hard to envision a scenarior where the Bengals would re-sign Hill.

Also Saturday, the team waived kicker Marshall Koehn, who filled in for the injured Randy Bullock last week. Bullock practiced this week, and the release of Koehn signals there are no linger issues with the injury.

To fill their spots on the 53-man roster, the Bengals promoted rookie safety Brandon Wilson and rookie defensive tackle Josh Tupou.

Both players are expected to be active Sunday in Tennessee, with defensive tackle Pat Sims out with a calf injury and safety Shawn Williams listed as doubtful with a hamstring.

Wilson is a sixth-round pick out of Houston, while Tupou signed as an undrafted free agent out of Colorado.
