CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The Cincinnati Bengals (10-7) activated seven players from the Reserve/COVID-19 list as the team prepares for Saturday’s Wild Card showdown with the Las Vegas Raiders (10-7).

Pro Bowlers Joe Mixon and Trey Hendrickson are two of the players the team moved to the active roster on Monday.

Safety Vonn Bell, defensive tackle B.J. Hill, center Trey Hopkins, guard Quinton Spain and defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi are also off the Reserve/COVID-19 list now, the team announced.

The return of these seven players is vital for the Bengals as they look to get the franchise’s first playoff win since 1991.
