  • Lions' DJ Reader: Could miss start of training camp

    Head coach Dan Campbell told reporters Thursday that Reader (quadriceps) may not be ready for the start of training camp, per NFL.com. Reader inked a two-year deal with the Lions back in March, but he has yet to take the field as he continues to recover from a quadriceps issue that he sustained late last year. Injuries have been a concern for the 29-year-old as of late, causing him to miss 10 total games over the last two seasons. Once Reader returns to full health, he's expected to remain one of the league's best run-stoppers in 2024.

  • Bengals' DJ Reader: Goes on IR

    Reader (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Monday. Reader suffered a torn quadriceps during Saturday's win over the Vikings and had already been ruled out for the remainder of the season, so his shift to IR does not come as a surprise. Either way, the injury is still a significant blow to the Bengals' defensive front as the team works to earn a playoff spot in the final three weeks of the season. Josh Tupou, Jay Tufele and Zachary Carter will all likely be called upon to help fill the void created by Reader's absence.

  • Bengals' DJ Reader: Will play through back issue

    Reader (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts. Reader was added to the injury report Friday and was unable to practice. Nevertheless, he'll suit up for a pivotal Week 14 matchup against the Colts and will occupy a significant role in the middle of the Bengals' defensive line.

  • Bengals' DJ Reader: Late addition to injury report

    Reader (back) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Colts, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports. Reader popped up on the Bengals' injury report Friday with a back issue, and he now seems to be in jeopardy of missing Sunday's affair. If the veteran defensive tackle were to be held out in Week 14, Josh Tupou would likely see increased work on the Bengals' defensive line.

  • Bengals' DJ Reader: Returns from IR

    Reader (knee) was activated off of injured reserve Saturday. Reader is expected to make his return this week versus the Steelers after injuring his MCL back in Week 3 against the Jets. Reader will return to his starting spot at defensive tackle alongside B.J. Hill, and the former should improve a Bengals run defense that already ranks in the top 10.

  • Bengals' DJ Reader: Will play Sunday, per HC

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Friday that Reader (knee) will play Sunday against the Steelers, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Reader was designated to return from injured reserve Monday after missing the previous six games due to an MCL sprain, but he appears to have progressed well during practice and is in line to suit up Sunday. Despite Taylor's optimism, Reader won't officially clear his injury designation until the Bengals activate the defensive tackle from IR.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Cleared to practice

    Reader (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Monday. Reader has missed the last six games due to an MCL sprain, but he'll be able to rejoin the Bengals at practice following their Week 10 bye. The 28-year-old will need to be activated from injured reserve within the next three weeks if he hopes to play again in 2022.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Won't return Monday night

    Bengals' coach Zac Taylor said that Reader (knee) won't be ready to return Monday night against the Browns, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports. Hobson suggested the Bengals will likely hold out Reader until after they return from their bye week, November 20th against the Steelers.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Won't return Sunday

    Readers (knee) is ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Jets, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Reader went down with a knee injury after making a tackle in the first half against the Jets, though he was ultimately able to walk off under his own power, per Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer. The starting defensive tackle recorded eight tackles (seven solo) over the first two games this season, and his absence will mark a substantial blow for the Bengals' defense. As a result, expect Josh Tupou to step up into a larger role against the Jets.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Ruled out for Week 18

    Reader (coach's decision) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. Reader returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he didn't travel with the team ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale against the Browns since the Bengals will be resting several starters ahead of the playoffs. Across 15 appearances in the regular season, he totaled 43 tackles (22 solo) and two sacks.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Returns from COVID list

    Reader (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Lands on COVID-19 list

    The Bengals placed Reader (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. Reader was unavailable for Sunday's win over the Ravens after he tested positive for COVID-19.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Bengals still struggle against run

    The Bengals, which overhauled their defense to better defend against the run with Reader as a key offseason signing, are 27th in rush yards allowed and last in the NFL in yards after contact, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. This is not to say that this lies at the feet of Reader - in fact, the team is pleased with his performance so far. But, Cincinnati has been strikingly poor in finishing tackles as a defensive unit, although they haven't been at full strength so far. The biggest absences have been Geno Atkins and Trae Waynes, who haven't played at all. Additionally, Mackensie Alexander and Logan Wilson missed the Week 4 game.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Healthy moving forward

    Reader (muscle cramps) wasn't listed on Monday's injury report, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. It was quite concerning when Reader was carted off the field during Sunday's loss to the Chargers, but it was indeed just muscle cramps, as he was a full participant in Monday's practice. He'll be counted on heavily in Thursday's matchup against the Browns, especially if Geno Atkins (shoulder) is unable to go.

  • Bengals' D.J. Reader: Loses weight during offseason

    Reader said Wednesday that he's lost about 30 pounds since the end of last season, dropping his weight to around 317, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports. Reader often played nose tackle in Houston the past four seasons and showed some pass-rushing talent with 13 quarterback hits and 2.5 sacks in 2019. After defecting to Cincinnati on a four-year, $53 million contract, Reader probably envisions himself getting more opportunities to chase quarterbacks as a 3-technique tackle in a 4-3 defense. The change might mean sacrificing something against the run, but it's not like he'll be undersized at 317 pounds.

  • Texans' D.J. Reader: Signing with Bengals

    Reader is slated to sign a four-year, $53 million deal with the Bengals, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. That will make Reader -- who recorded 52 tackles and 2.5 sacks for the Texans in 2019 -- the highest-paid nose tackle in the NFL, while Field Yates of ESPN notes that by adding him to the mix alongside Geno Atkins, the Bengals will now boast one of the best defensive tackle duos in the league.

  • Texans' D.J. Reader: Records sack in win

    Reader recorded four tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss and one quarterback hit in Sunday's 53-32 win over Atlanta in Week 5. Reader's been a mainstay in the middle of Houston's defensive line since he was drafted in 2016, but he doesn't typically record many sacks. His 2.5 sacks through five games in 2019 is a new career best for the fourth-year nose tackle.

    The Texans placed Reader on injured reserve Tuesday due to a sprained knee, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Reader won't require surgery to address the injury and should be a full participant in the Texans' offseason program.
