Reedy: TE Shuler Failed His Physical

New, comments

According to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy, tight end Mickey Shuler, who the Bengals claimed off waivers on Sunday, has failed his physical with the Bengals and that his roster spot will be filled in the next couple of days.

It is unclear as to who the Bengals will choose to take Shuler's roster spot but Chase Coffman was waived to make room for Shuler so it's possible that they could re-sign him. Either way, I'm sure the team will look to sign a tight end to join Jermaine Gresham and Colin Cochart.

We'll keep you updated on the situation.

UPDATE: According to Geoff Hobson, signing somebody other than a tight end is a possibility.
