Bengals waive Jeromy Miles and promote Chris Lewis-Harris

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals announced Saturday morning that they've waived Jeromy Miles and promoted Chris Lewis-Harris from the practice squad.

Several days after the team re-signed safety Jeromy Miles to the 53-man roster, they've turned around and placed him on waivers (again) Saturday morning, the team announced. The move opens room for cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris, who was promoted from the team's practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Lewis-Harris is a first-year player that was placed on the practice squad after failing to make the roster during final cuts. Lewis-Harris spent most of the season last year on the practice squad, eventually promoted for the final two regular season games and the team's postseason loss in Houston.

Miles suffered a hamstring injury against the Chicago Bears during kickoff weekend. Cincinnati waived the safety to make room for J.K. Schaffer, who was promoted from the practice squad, against the Pittsbugh Steelers. On Wednesday, the team re-signed Miles while placing Schaffer back on the practice squad.

The move only highlights the fragile nature of the team's cornerback roster. Brandon Ghee (concussion) and Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring) are listed as out and doubtful, respectively, while Adam Jones was limited this week with an abdominal injury. Cincinnati invited a handful of cornerbacks for a workout on Tuesday before they signed former Eagles cornerback Curtis Marsh.
