Shayne Graham will be ready against the Houston Texans this Sunday, if you take roster moves as an indicator. On Tuesday, the bengals waived replacement kicker, Dave Rayner. When the Bengals actually took their opportunity to score points, Rayner did a solid job converting all three points after touchdown and successfully kicking his only field goal attempt (26 yards).
Since Graham was on the 53-man roster, and the Bengals waived Rayner, that leaves them with an open spot on the 53-man.
Also, Keith Rivers was officially placed on Injured Reserve while the team signed guard Andrew Crummey from the Washington Redskins' practice squad. Crummey, a rookie, is an Ohio native (Van Wert). This Baltimore Sun piece says that Crummy was expected to become a decent lineman in the NFL, but suffered a broken left fibula his senior season. Note the part where it talks about his leadership qualities.
Check out Crummey's Maryland Terps Bio page.
