Earlier this week, there were reports that Bengals cornerback Terence Newman would miss the next 1-3 weeks because of a knee injury suffered in last weekend’s victory over the Colts.

Coach Marvin Lewis said only that Newman was sore, but the Bengals made a roster move on Thursday that suggests they’re concerned Newman won’t be able to play. The team has announced that they have promoted cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris from the practice squad and released safety Tony Dye.

Lewis-Harris spent seven weeks on the Bengals’ active roster earlier this season and recorded three tackles in the three games he played during that time. Lewis-Harris also played a pair of games for the team last season. Adam Jones, Dre Kirkpatrick, Brandon Ghee and Chris Crocker are other possibilities at cornerback in the event that Newman doesn’t play this week.

Dye returned a blocked punt for a touchdown against the Browns last month in the one game he was active for the Bengals.

    “Dye returned a blocked punt for a touchdown against the Browns last month in the one game he was active for the Bengals.”

    Well, if you’re only going to get to play once, at least you can say you scored a touchdown on defense?
