On Tuesday, the Cincinnati Bengals officially placed Terrell Owens on Injured Reserve after the wide receiver had surgery on Monday by the renowned Dr. James Andrews to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. That left the 53-man roster down to 52 men.
The Bengals added their 53rd man on Wednesday, according to the Mothership's Twitter account -- or a press release that Cincy Jungle is still not allowed to have because we're the bane of the Bengals and traditional media. Not that I'm standing on my rose-scented soapbox or anything. Just saying.
The Bengals claimed tight end Garrett Mills, from Tulsa, off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles. Mill was originally drafted by the New England Patriots in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. According to Wiki (yes, Wiki), Mills was expected to play both tight end and fullback, which shouldn't come as a surpise, with the Bengals love of multi-purpose tight ends?
Mills played nine games in three seasons with Minnesota, recording seven receptions for 91 yards receiving. He played seven games with the Eagles this season, starting two, recording two receptions for 19 yards.
