Bengals waive Miles (again)

BY foxsports • September 21, 2013

For the second week in a row the Bengals have waived safety Jeromy Miles prior to a game. This week, however, it will be cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris who is getting the call-up from the practice squad.

The team announced the move Saturday morning.




Lewis-Harris is expected to be in uniform Sunday afternoon when the Bengals (1-1) host Green Bay (1-1) at Paul Brown Stadium. Miles suffered a hamstring injury in the season opener at Chicago and has been limited in his ability to practice. He was waived prior to last Monday's 20-10 win against Pittsburgh, replaced by linebacker J.K. Schaffer. The Bengals went through the roster manipulation this week of releasing Schaffer, re-signing Miles to the 53-man roster, and then re-signing Schaffer to the practice squad.

Lewis-Harris is a first-year player from Tennessee-Chattanooga. He spent most of last season on Cincinnati's practice squad before getting promoted in December. He played in the final two games of the regular season against Pittsburgh and Baltimore, as well as in the playoffs at Houston.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is coming off a 480-yard passing performance in the Packers' 38-20 win against San Francisco last week. The Packers utilize a lot of three- and four-receiver sets. The Bengals have already ruled cornerback Brandon Ghee out for the game due to concussion-related issues. Dre Kirkpatrick is doubtful to play with a hamstring injury, while Adam Jones was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report with an abdomen injury.

The Bengals signed third-year player Curtis Marsh on Wednesday.
