Bengals waive OL Burden, now down to 85

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Bengals waived offensive lineman Chandler Burden on Sunday, bringing their roster total from 86 down to 85.

A Cincinnati native, Burden played at Kentucky before spending time on the Miami and Kansas City practice squads as a rookie last season. The Bengals signed Burden as a free agent on June 3 and played him in both of this season's preseason games.

In Saturday night's 25-17 loss to the Jets, Burden played 20 snaps as an offensive tackle. That was the equivalent of 28 percent of the team's 72 snaps.

Like the rest of the league, the Bengals have until next Monday to cut their roster down to 75 players. Then, on Aug. 30, they must get that roster trimmed to the 53-man regular-season limit.
