The Cincinnati Bengals released wide receiver James Wright on Wednesday and announced a series of moves involving injured players.

Linebackers Vontaze Burfict and Sean Porter and defensive end Margus Hunt wre placed on the active/physically unable to perform list before training camp begins and rookie offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi was assigned to the active/non-football injury list.

Burfict, Porter, Hunt and Ogbuehi are allowed to be activated and practice as soon as they receive medical clearance.

Wright, a second-year player, was designated by the team as waived/injured. If he makes it through waivers on Wednesday, he will join the Bengals’ reserve/injured list for the 2015 season.

In 11 games as a rookie last season for the Bengals, Wright played in 11 games and had five receptions for 91 yards and three carries for 30 yards.
