Bengals sign cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris from practice squad


The Bengals signed cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris from the practice squad on Saturday.

To make room on the 53-player roster, the Bengals waived safety Jeromy Miles.

Lewis-Harris, 24, has spent the bulk of the last two seasons either on Cincinnati’s practice squad or roster. He was active for two regular-season games and a postseason contest for the Bengals in 2012.

Three Bengals cornerbacks are on the injury report for Sunday’s game vs. Green Bay. Adam Jones, a key contributor in the secondary, is questionable with an abdomen injury. Also, Brandon Ghee (concussion) is out, while Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) is doubtful.

The 26-year-old Miles appeared in the Bengals’ 2013 regular-season opener at Chicago. The Bengals waived him on Monday, then re-signed him on Wednesday before letting him go on Saturday.

  1. I thought when we picked Kirkpatrick he would be good. But I don’t ever remember seeing him on the field at all. He needs to get healthy or we should cut ties with him cause I’ve never seen him play.. Who Dey!

  2. time to admit Kirkpatrick is a BUST…he will never be anymore than an often injured nickleback with little discipline and burn marks all over him…first round BUST…

  3. Yeah I don’t see Dre touching the field more than one more time this year. He’s definitely panning out to be a bust.

    And as for the Bengals beating Green Bay, I’d be shocked. And I’m a die hard Bengal fan. I think this is shaping up to be a beat down.

  4. This game could go either way really, the Bengals secondary is banged up but GB is rotating a trio of safeties that wouldn’t start for any other team in the league.

    The Bengals Dline is formidable though, 6’7″ Michael Johnson and 6’8″ Margus Hunt could really give GBs offensive tackles problems being that they are both 6’5″ or under. Hate to say it but seeing Geathers go on IR recently was a relief, I think he had 5 sacks by himself the last time the teams met.

    All I know is, it should be a good game with lots of points scored. Turnovers will be key. May the better team win.

  5. It sure doesn’t help to be facing Rodgers and all his offensive weapons with a banged up secondary. The Packers have 4 guys that can kill defenses in Cobb, Finley, Jones & Nelson.

    Of course, the way to beat every QB is to put enough pressure and hits on him to make him uncomfortable. That’s a lot easier said than done with the better QBs. The Packers o-line has been solid in pass protection for 7 of 8 quarters this year but it is definitely the weak spot of the offense.
