Bengals waive WR Jordan Shipley

August 17, 2012

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals have waived receiver Jordan Shipley, who was limited in training camp while he recovered from reconstructive knee surgery.
Shipley was Cincinnati's starting slot receiver before he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Sept. 18. He wasn't cleared to practice fully until July 30. A third-round pick in 2010, he had one catch for 4 yards in the Bengals' two preseason games.
The Bengals also waived kicker Thomas Weber on Friday. Kicker Mike Nugent signed a one-year tender offer as the team's franchise player in April. He was bothered by a sore hamstring at the start of training camp, giving Weber a chance to kick.
