Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Ready for Sunday
Wilcox (foot) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Jay Morrison of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Wilcox popped up on Cincinnati's injury report as a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to a foot injury, but after a full workload Friday, it seems as if the 27-year-old has already moved past the issue. Expect Wilcox to serve as the Bengals' No. 3 tight end behind Tanner Hudson and Drew Sample in Week 17.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Tending to foot injury
Wilcox (foot) was a limited participant at practice Thursday.
Wilcox was not listed on the Bengals' injury report Wednesday, so he presumably picked up the foot issue at practice during the week. He'll likely need to practice in full Friday to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Two catches against Vikings
Wilcox recorded two catches for 20 yards in Saturday's 27-24 overtime win over the Vikings.
Four different Bengals tight ends received double-digit snaps against the Vikings, making it difficult to rely upon any single option at the position. Wilcox is the least likely of the four to have a productive fantasy game in any given week, as he's logged just 10 targets across 175 snaps on offense for the season.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Records reception in win
Wilcox hauled in his lone target for a 12-yard reception while playing 12 of the Bengals' 73 snaps on offense in Monday's 34-31 overtime win over the Jaguars.
The 12 receiving yards were a season-high total for Wilcox, which speaks to the muted role he typically holds in the Bengals' passing attack. The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Wilcox is valued as a blocker and is a core contributor on special teams, so he should continue to remain active on game days even while he rarely contributes as a pass catcher....

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Fails to haul in lone target
Wilcox drew one catchless target while playing five of the Bengals' 64 offensive snaps in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Texans.
Cincinnati kept four tight ends active Week 10, and Wilcox ranked a distant fourth in terms of snaps. The Bengals effectively ran a three-man timeshare at the position, with Drew Sample (23 snaps) leading the group in playing time and Irv Smith (21) and Tanner Hudson (20) lagging closely behind him. Due to his status as a core special-teams contributor, Wilcox should continue to remain active on game days, but he doesn't look to be close to moving into a notable role on offense.... See More ...

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Handling special-teams role
Wilcox went without a target across two snaps on offense in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Ravens.
Wilcox has been active for both of the Bengals' first two games, but he's seen most of his work on special teams rather than at tight end. He's logged just nine snaps on offense compared to 35 on special teams and will continue to operate as Cincinnati's clear No. 3 tight end while both Irv Smith and Drew Sample are available....

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Activated from PUP list
Wilcox (undisclosed) has been cleared to practice and has been removed from the active/PUP list .
Wilcox had been placed on the PUP list on July 24, and now that he's ready to resume practice, he'll look to secure a role in the Bengals tight end corps. Heading into the team's preseason finale, Irv Smith and Drew Sample profile as Cincinnati's top two options at the position, with Wilcox, Devin Asiasi, Tanner Hudson, Nick Bowers and Christian Trahan competing for depth slotting....

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Returns to Cincinnati
Wilcox (undisclosed) re-signed with the Bengals on Monday and was subsequently placed on the active/PUP list.
Wilcox has spent the first two seasons of his career in Cincinnati, but he wasn't tendered a contract in March and became an unrestricted free agent. However, he'll now return and likely compete for backup duties behind Irv Smith. It's not clear what injury Wilcox is dealing with, but he'll be eligible to take the field and come off the PUP list once he can pass a physical.... See More ... See Less
Mitchell Wilcox: Won't be tendered
The Bengals announced Friday they will not tender Wilcox, making the tight end an unrestricted free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Wilcox appeared in 16 regular-season contests and caught 17 of 18 targets for 139 yards and one touchdown. The majority of his production (nine receptions for 69 yards and a score) came in Weeks 15 and 16, when Hayden Hurst was sidelined due to injury. The undrafted tight end out of South Florida should have some interest as a free agent, but he may have to settle for another backup role.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Moves back to No. 2 TE role
Wilcox played 27 of the Bengals' 65 snaps on offense and went without a target in Sunday's 27-16 win over the Ravens.
Hayden Hurst settled back in as Cincinnati's top tight end in his return from a three-game absence, resulting in Wilcox settling for a downturn in playing time as the No. 2 option at the position. While Hurst was sidelined, Wilcox offered only marginal fantasy value, as he cobbled together a 10-79-1 receiving line on 11 targets during that three-game stretch.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Season-high six catches
Wilcox had six catches for 35 yards in the Bengals' win over the Patriots on Saturday.
Wilcox entered the game with only 11 catches on the season, but he was active early in place of Hayden Hurst (calf) this week, as the Bengals connected on a number of early short passes. Hurst was making progress in practice this week before missing a third consecutive game - we'll see if he's available next Monday against Buffalo, or whether Wilcox will get a fourth start at tight end....

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Set for another start
With Hayden Hurst (calf) having been downgraded to out, Wilcox is in line to start at tight end for the Bengals in Saturday's game against the Patriots, Michael Niziolek of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
It will be the third straight start for Wilcox, who caught all three of his targets for 34 yards and a TD in this past Sunday's 34-23 win over the Buccaneers while handling a 91 percent snap share. Though the 26-year-old isn't a high-percentage fantasy option in Week 16, Wilcox does offer an option to those needing to replace Hurst or otherwise seeking short-term TE help.... See More ...

Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Catches first touchdown in win
Wilcox caught all three of his targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-23 win over the Buccaneers.
Wilcox was well on his way to another disappointing fantasy outing before he caught a 12-yard touchdown strike late in the fourth quarter. He's served as Cincinnati's No. 1 tight end during each of the last two contests with Hayden Hurst sidelined due to a calf issue, catching four passes on just five targets for 44 yards and a score in that span. If Hurst is able to gain clearance before the weekend, Wilcox would presumably see his snap count drop Saturday in New England.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: One catch on two targets
Wilcox had one catch on two targets for 10 yards in Sunday's win over the Browns.
Wilcox provided more value with his run-blocking than with his receiving skills, netting those two targets on 48 snaps while filling in for the injured Hayden Hurst. Hurst remains week-to-week, so Wilcox could be in line for another start this Sunday against the Bucs.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Ascends to top of depth chart
Wilcox is set to work as Cincinnati's top tight end Sunday against the Browns with Hayden Hurst (calf) ruled out for the contest, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
Hurst's first absence of the season paves the way for Wilcox to get some extra attention from star quarterback Joe Burrow. The 26-year-old Wilcox has yet to reach 20 receiving yards in a game over 27 career NFL appearances, so expectations should be tempered despite the favorable circumstances.... See More ... See Less
Bengals' Mitchell Wilcox: Busy role on tap
Wilcox had one catch for 13 yards on his only target in Sunday's win over Kansas City. He played 47 offensive snaps, which is the most he's played all season, both in raw number and as a percentage of the team's snaps.
He will maintain a similar role in Week 14 with Hayden Hurst unlikely to play. That said, Wilcox probably won't have a significant role in the passing game, as he's had no more than two targets in any game this season.... See More ... See Less
