Though Jeff Ruby, who owns the popular steak houses in Cincinnati, isn't really connected to the team in any official capacity, he does have his connections. Take this for what it's worth. He tweeted on Saturday morning that the Bengals called J.K. Schaffer and informed him that he didn't make the team.
RT @TheRealJeffRuby: And by the frekin way they CALLED JK to tell him he didn't make the team.>Sounds like Schaffer hasn't made the 53— Joe Reedy (@joereedy) August 31, 2013
Schaffer led the team with 21 tackles this preseason and added a quarterback sack and interception against the Colts.
But this is one of those cases that we'll wait and see what happens.
