Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) – Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Robert
Geathers was placed on injured reserve Wednesday after hurting his elbow in
the team’s Monday night win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Geathers, the Bengals’ longest-tenured player, sustained the injury during the
first half of the 20-10 Week 2 victory. The veteran lineman had missed just 10
games total over his first nine NFL seasons, all of which were spent with
Cincinnati.

A starter on the Bengals’ defensive line in each of the past six seasons,
Geathers was being just in a rotational role behind Carlos Dunlap for the
first two games.

Cincinnati made several other roster moves on Wednesday, re-signing safety
Jeromy Miles and adding cornerback Curtis Marsh while waiving linebacker J.K.
Schaffer.

Miles, one of the Bengals’ top special-teams players who had been with the
club since 2010, was waived prior to Monday’s contest. Schaffer was signed off
the practice squad to take his place and was active for the Pittsburgh game.

Marsh was a third-round pick of Philadelphia in 2011 who made 12 tackles in 15
games with the Eagles last season, but was waived by the team just prior to
the season opener after suffering a hand fracture.
