Bengals promote S Tony Dye and waive CB Chris Lewis-Harris

Rick Dole

The Cincinnati Bengals made a roster move Saturday in anticipation of Chris Crocker sitting against the Cleveland Browns.

With Chris Crocker listed as doubtful against the Cleveland Browns after missing every practice this week, the Cincinnati Bengals made a roster move on Saturday, largely as a contingency.

The team announced that they've signed Tony Dye off of their practice squad, waiving cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris to make room.

Dye is a second-year player who signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as a college free agent following the 2012 NFL Draft. He spent his rookie season on the team's Injured Reserve list after suffering a preseason ankle injury. After playing every preseason game this year, Dye was waived during final cuts on August 31 and returned on the team's practice squad in late September.

Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is expected to be the team's fifth defensive back in nickel situations -- perhaps playing the slot like Crocker had following Leon Hall's season-ending Achilles tear. Cornerback Brandon Ghee could get some snaps in against the Cleveland Browns as well.

Lewis-Harris played three games this season with the Bengals, logging three special teams tackles.
