Bengals elevate Sean Davis to active roster

After Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase shined in Week 1 against Minnesota, Chris Simms and Mike Florio are convinced they'll lead the Bengals to an upset win over Andy Dalton and the Bears in Chicago.

With safety Ricardo Allen out for Sunday’s game at Chicago, the Bengals need another safety. They have one, thanks to the elevation of safety Sean Davis.

Davis, who arrived recently after being let go by the Colts, was added to the active roster on Saturday.

The Bengals will also be without cornerback Trae Waynes, who is out with a hamstring injury.

Davis, a second-round pick of the Steelers, played his first four years in Pittsburgh. He has spent time since then with Washington, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, and now the Bengals.

The 1-0 Bengals have a chance to get to 2-0 in the top-heavy AFC North, and possibly to prove that their division is the best one, top to bottom, in the league.
