The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Tuesday that they have waived fullback Chris Pressley (knee) and will leave quarterback Zac Robinson (elbow) on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.
Although Pressley returned to practice 21 days ago and was medically cleared, the team was required to either activate him to the 53-man roster or waive him as of 4:00 PM EST on Tuesday. They chose the former.
Because Robinson never returned to practice, nor was he medically cleared, the Bengals opted to end his season by leaving him on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.
In the absence of Pressley this season, the Bengals have gone with an nontraditional lack of a true fullback. Initially, they moved tight end Orson Charles to the position, but he's barely seen any action in 2013. Instead, they've occasionally used tight end Tyler Eifert as a fullback.
The team has also frequently used BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard in a two-back formation.
