Dunlap, who wears jersey No. 96, owns the Bengals' career sack record, but his playing time has decreased this year. Through six games, he's been on the field for 64% of the team's defensive snaps, his lowest usage since the veteran's rookie season.
He's played under half of the Bengals' defensive snaps in each of the last two weeks, and Dunlap has publicly voiced his frustration.
"It appears we have a good game plan but I would like to be a part of it," he told ESPN's Ben Baby before an Oct. 10 contest against the Baltimore Ravens.
Dunlap added at the time that he was being demoted from starter to situational edge rusher. "Evidently, I didn't make enough tackles in the run game," he said.
An 11-year pro, Dunlap has spent his entire career with the Bengals. He notched nine sacks in 2019 and has posted at least 7.5 sacks off the edge every campaign since 2012.
The 31-year-old is signed through the 2021 season.
