The Bengals today were granted a one-week exemption from the NFL for LB Dontay Moch to participate in team activities without counting against the 53-player roster.
Moch has completed a four-game NFL suspension (Games 1-4) for violation of league policy on performance-enhancing substances. He could be activated to the roster at the team’s option at any time during the exemption, though no spots on the 53-player roster presently are open. His extension is set to expire next Monday, Oct. 8.
Moch led the team in sacks (3.5) during the 2012 preseason.
