Just one day before a pivotal AFC North clash with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, the Cincinnati Bengals received some great injury news on a promising rookie defender.

The Bengals officially returned rookie cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt to the active roster after he was lifted off the injured reserve earlier in the week.

Taylor-Britt joins Cincinnati's active roster for a chance to make his anticipated NFL debut. The former Nebraska product was selected by the Bengals' front office with the 60th overall pick back in April, actually trading up three spots with the Buffalo Bills to land the former Cornhusker.

A three-year starter, Taylor-Britt earned an All-Big Ten selection during his final collegiate season and totaled 140 career tackles, 10.0 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, 22 passes defended and 5 interceptions across 40 games.

Taylor-Britt earned an important role in the week of practices leading up to a matchup against Jackson, the most dynamic quarterback in football. He was tasked with simulating Jackson for the Bengals' scout team.

It'll be interesting to see how head coach Zac Taylor utilizes his rookie corner, and what sort of snap count he'll see on defense. The Bengals certainly have their hands full with Jackson and the Ravens. As it stands, FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds show Cincinnati 3.5-point road underdogs.
