Bengals call up a corner from practice squad

There are injuries everywhere you look in the Bengals cornerback corps, so the team made a move Saturday to add a healthy body to the mix.

The Bengals signed Chris Lewis-Harris off their practice squad to give them one more option heading into Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. The Bengals will definitely be without Dre Kirkpatrick and they could also be missing Nate Clements, Jason Allen and Leon Hall. Clements did not practice all week because of a calf injury and Allen missed the last two days thanks to a thigh injury. Both of them are listed as doubtful while Hall is questionable with the hamstring injury that kept him out last week.

Adam Jones and Terence Newman are likely to start again this week — Clements played safety in Week Three — and the team clearly needed a healthy body behind them. Lewis-Harris was signed as undrafted free agent out of Tennessee-Chattanooga this offseason and has never played an NFL game. He had 13 tackles and a sack in preseason.

The Bengals released tight end Richard Quinn to make room for Lewis-Harris. A second-round pick of the Broncos in 2009, Quinn has turned into a journeyman blocking tight end who could conceivably return once Cincinnati gets healthier at corner.

    Hi bengals – you don’t need a corner to play against the most conservative offense. Anyway hope you lose tomorrow.

    The bye can’t come soon enough for the Bengals.

    The Bengals need to get healthy in a hurry. The back two-thirds of their schedule is a killer.
