The Cincinnati Bengals announced today that they waived running back Rodney Stewart with an injury settlement. Stewart tore his ACL on May 22 during OTA's. He underwent surgery on June 6. Stewart signed with the Bengals after going undrafted out of the University of Colorado in April's draft. Stewart ran for 854 yards and four touchdowns as a senior in 2011. As a junior, Stewart ran for 1,300 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns.

It would make sense for the Bengals to re-sign Stewart to the Injured Reserve. Stewart also suffered a similar type of injury in high school. Stewart was expected to compete for a spot on the practice squad this season. Stewart is a back of the smaller variety at 5-foot-7. He ran a 4.55 40 yard dash during his Pro Day on March 8. ESPN Scout Inc ranked Stewart as the 32nd-best running back prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft.
