Bengals re-signed RB Cedric Peerman to a one-year contract.

Peerman spent most of 2016 on injured reserve with a broken arm he suffered in the preseason. A standout on special teams, Peerman could get bigger look on offense following the departure of Rex Burkhead.

The Bengals are open to re-signing free agent RB Cedric Peerman.

The Bengals let Rex Burkhead depart on Thursday, and now have an opening at their No. 3 running back spot. The Bengals seem all but guaranteed of drafting a runner, perhaps as early as Day 1. Peerman is primarily a special teamer.

Bengals activated RB Cedric Peerman (arm) from injured reserve.

Peerman suffered a broken arm in the third preseason game. The Bengals need him back on the active roster with Gio Bernard (knee) out for the season. With Peerman designated to return, Bernard, DT Andrew Billings, and CB William Jackson III are officially out for the season. Cincinnati also signed LS Tyler Ott and waived DT DeShawn Williams.

The Bengals designated RB Cedric Peerman (arm) as their I.R.-return player.

First-round rookie CB William Jackson III was also in the mix, but the season-ending torn ACL to Giovani Bernard last week likely played a big role in this. Peerman will handle No. 3 back duties and play his normal special teams.

Cedric Peerman exited the Bengals' third preseason game with a broken left forearm.

Peerman got his left arm caught underneath both himself and a defender as he went to the ground at the end of a second-quarter run. He immediately went to the sideline in what looked like serious pain. He was fitted with an air cast on his forearm on the sidelines. It looks like he will be out a while.

Bengals re-signed RB Cedric Peerman.

Peerman is a core special teamer, but isn't really a going concern in Cincinnati's backfield. His spot on the 53-man roster is not assured.
Thu, Apr 9, 2015 03:25:00 PM

The Bengals are expected to re-sign RB Cedric Peerman later Thursday.

Peerman recently visited the Eagles, apparently sparking the Bengals to come up with an offer. He has just 64 carries across five seasons in Cincy, but carries value as a core special teamer.

Free agent RB Cedric Peerman visited the Eagles on Tuesday.

Peerman, 28, isn't an offensive asset, but does earn his keep on special teams. He led the league with 16 solo tackles while covering kicks last season.
Wed, Apr 8, 2015 08:41:00 AM

Cedric Peerman rushed twice for 21 yards in Cincinnati's Week 11 win over the Saints.

Peerman got out-touched 28-2 by Jeremy Hill. With Giovani Bernard (hip) looking likely to return for Week 12, Peerman is about to return to (distant) No. 3 duties.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 05:30:00 PM

Cedric Peerman (knee) is probable for Week 11.

Peerman was limited Wednesday and Thursday, but returned to a full practice Friday. He'll back up Jeremy Hill this week.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 06:12:00 PM

Bengals RB Cedric Peerman was limited with a knee issue on Wednesday and Thursday.

It's only notable because it appears Gio Bernard is going to miss another game with his hip injury, leaving Peerman as Jeremy Hill's backup. Peerman should be ready to go against the Saints, but won't be on the daily-league radar.
Thu, Nov 13, 2014 05:34:00 PM

Cedric Peerman finished with -2 yards on two carries in Cincinnati's Week 10 loss to the Browns.

Peerman was invisible as Jeremy Hill's backup. Regardless of whether Giovani Bernard (hip) is ready to return for Week 11, Peerman will remain well off the fantasy radar, even in daily-league tournaments.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 12:40:00 AM

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Bengals are "getting [Cedric] Peerman ready as a complimentary back to Jeremy Hill."

Gio Bernard (hip) is in doubt for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He couldn't finish last week's game and did not practice on Wednesday. The change-of-pace type Peerman has been on the fringe of Cincy's roster for the last five seasons, rushing just 54 times. The real winner if Gio sits, of course, would be rookie power back Jeremy Hill. He'd take on feature duties and would be a candidate for 20 touches.

Bengals RB Cedric Peerman (foot) is expected to miss 1-2 weeks.

Peerman had a rough offseason. Per, he first hurt his foot chasing down a man "who swiped his fiancee's cell phone off the table they were sitting at outside a New Orleans restaurant." Later, he got his foot caught awkwardly in a wave at Virginia Beach and hurt his ankle. Peerman is on the NFI list.
