Cincinnati Bengals tight end Thaddeus Moss (81) makes a reception in the fourth quarter of the NFL Preseason Week 3 game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Miami Dolphins at Paul Brown Stadium in downtown Cincinnati on Sunday, Aug. 29, 2021. The Dolphins made a long touchdown drive in the fourth quarter to win 29-26.

Tight end Thaddeus Moss was set to make his National Football League regular-season debut for the Cincinnati Bengals this past Sunday before suffering a hamstring injury during pregame warm-ups.

The former LSU teammate of Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow was elevated to the team's active roster from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's win against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium.

Moss, 23, is the son of Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss. His sister, Sydney, was a star basketball player at Thomas More University.

A tweet from Moss before the injury:

As a practice squad player elevated to the active roster for the game, Moss automatically reverted to the practice squad Monday.

The Bengals claimed Moss off waivers in April. He signed with Washington Football Team as an undrafted free agent in May 2020, but told reporters the Bengals and New England Patriots had expressed interest in him.

Moss also said at the time that the fact that he was not among a record-tying 14 LSU players selected in the 2020 NFL Draft "was definitely a slap in the face."
