Robert Geathers placed on IR; Jeromy Miles returns

US PRESSWIRE

The Bengals announced a handful of roster moves on Wednesday.

When the Cincinnati Bengals announced, during the first quarter of the team's Monday Night game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, that Robert Geathers wouldn't return, it was assumed that he had suffered a significant injury. The general rule is that players labeled as "out" during games are usually victims of a concussion or a long-term (serious) injury. Otherwise, questionable is usually the injury-related term that's floated during games.

And in Geathers' case, it was serious.

The team announced on Wednesday that Geathers will land on Injured Reserve with an elbow injury. Geathers, who signed a three-year deal worth $9.5 million during the offseason, completes his tenth season with the Bengals with 33 career quarterback sacks. He's the fifth player on IR.

The team also announced that linebacker J.K. Schaffer has be waived, who was signed to the 53-man roster last week when safety Jeromy Miles was released. Cincinnati also announced that they've re-signed Miles and signed cornerback Curtis Marsh. Marsh entered the NFL as a third-round pick in 2011 for the Philadelphia Eagles and played 22 games in two seasons there with ten special teams tackles and six stops on defense. He suffered a hand fracture during the preseason, which prompted his release during final cuts.
