Cincinnati Bengals promote Chris Lewis-Harris, drop Jeromy Miles


The Cincinnati Bengals have decided to make a minor move on the back end of the depth chart on the secondary, as they have promoted cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris from the practice squad and waived safety Jeromy Miles in a corresponding move, according to Bengals official site beat writer Geoff Hobson.

The Bengals are going into tomorrow’s big game against the Green Bay Packers nicked up at cornerback, as second-year pro Dre Kirkpatrick is listed doubtful with Brandon Ghee already ruled out and standout Adam Jones listed questionable. Lewis-Harris gives the Bengals some added depth at cornerback in case the worst happens with those injuries, and releasing Jeromy Miles also makes sense since Miles is currently listed questionable on the injury report with a hamstring injury.

Chris Lewis-Harris, 24, played in two games for the Cincinnati Bengals last season, and this definitely won’t be the last time he does the roster shuffle with the Bengals. This team has been doing a lot of shuffling on the back end of the roster in the secondary, and they needed to fortify the depth at CB due to those three injuries. Kirkpatrick will most likely join Ghee on the inactive list against Green Bay, but I would expect Adam Jones to be available.
