Titans promoted OLB Dontay Moch from the practice squad.

Moch has made five career appearances, four of which came with the Cardinals last season. He'll bring up the rear of the Titans' 53-man roster.

Bengals claimed OLB Dontay Moch off waivers from the Cardinals.

Injuries and ineffectiveness have limited the 2011 third-rounder to just five career appearances. The Bengals have a great track record with linebackers, but it was Cincinnati who drafted Moch in the first place. We doubt his second go-around in the Queen City will be much different than the first.

Cardinals waived LB Dontay Moch.

The 2011 third-rounder was promoted from the practice squad last September. He appeared in only four games, though he managed to register a sack. Moch has been highly injury prone through the first three years of his career.

Cardinals promoted OLB Dontay Moch from their practice squad.

25-year-old Moch is a former third-round pick of the Bengals. He showed a lot of pass-rushing juice at Nevada, and is needed after Sam Acho and Lorenzo Alexander hit injured reserve. Moch has been oft-injured early in his career.

Bengals waived LB Dontay Moch.

Badly overdrafted as a 2011 third-round pick, Moch missed his entire rookie season with a broken foot and got hit with a four-game PED suspension in 2012. When active, he's been ineffective.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 03:13:00 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Bengals LB Dontay Moch is on the trade block.

The obvious takeaway being that Moch's roster spot is in peril. Injury, suspension and ineffectiveness have limited the 2011 third-rounder to a grand total of five career snaps. He's not going to draw trade interest.

Bengals placed LB Dontay Moch on the reserve/non-football injury list, ending his season.

They also signed LB Emmanuel Lamur. Moch's season ends after just one game due to recurring migraine headaches. He was drafted in the third round last year, and the one appearance is the only of his career so far. Moch will have to battle for a roster spot in 2013 training camp, if his health is up for it.
Fri, Nov 2, 2012 03:56:00 PM

Bengals LB Dontay Moch has been added back to the active roster.

Moch served a four-game PED suspension before the Bengals used a roster exemption to hold him out in Week 5. A third-round pick in 2011, Moch missed his entire rookie season with a broken foot. He'll attempt to carve out a role on special teams.

Bengals DC Mike Zimmer says suspended LB Dontay Moch "needs to get better at linebacker."

"He’s been here for a year and he’s making mistakes that he shouldn’t be making," Zimmer said Monday. "He’s sat in the meetings and heard stuff but that’s not the best way for him to learn. He has to get out there and do it." A third-round pick last season, Moch missed his entire rookie year and is suspended for the first four games of 2012. His roster spot is very much in danger.

NFL suspended Bengals OLB Dontay Moch four games for violating the league's policy against banned substances.

Moch, who missed the entire 2011 season due to injury, has appealed the suspension. The former third-round pick is highly athletic, but his lack of exposure could ultimately put his status with the Bengals in question. If Moch makes an impact this season, it will likely be on special teams and as a situational pass rusher.

Bengals OLB Dontay Moch (foot) has resumed practicing.

The third-round pick broke his foot early in Bengals' training camp. He's expected to be inactive for the next two weeks as he works his way back into game shape. The large majority of his contributions this season should come on special teams.
Sat, Oct 8, 2011 02:40:00 PM

ESPN's John Clayton reports that Bengals OLB Dontay Moch could miss upwards of eight weeks with a fractured foot.

The third-round pick out of Nevada suffered the injury in the team's preseason opener. Moch was expected to transition from college end to outside linebacker, making missed weeks of practice that much more of a setback. He'll likely serve as a "gunner" on special teams when he returns to full health.

Third-round OLB Dontay Moch is believed to have suffered a broken foot in the Bengals' preseason opener Friday.

He was on crutches and sporting a boot on his right foot after the game. Primarily expected to contribute on special teams this season, Moch's rookie campaign is very much in danger.
Sat, Aug 13, 2011 10:34:00 AM

The Bengals official website confirms that third-round OLB Dontay Moch isn't going to play much on defense as a rookie.

Special teams coach Darrin Simmons is already dreaming of ways to use Moch's size and speed package in punt coverage. His primary year-one position will be "gunner" as he makes the transition from college defensive end to outside linebacker.
