In addition to the moves the Bengals made Monday, most notably releasing receiver Denarius Moore, the team cut seven more players to get down to the 75-man limit, per ESPN.com. The team released WR Desmond Lawrence, LB Nico Johnson, DT Kwame Geathers, DE Sam Montgomery, OG Chris Jasperse, TE John Peters and WR Tevin Reese. The team put FB Mark Weisman and WR Onterio McCalebb on the waived/injured list, LB Sean Porter on the reserve/PUP list and OT Cedric Ogbuehi on the reserve/non-football injury list.
The Bengals have signed defensive tackle Kwame Geathers to their practice squad. He is the brother of Cincinnati defensive end Robert Geathers.
The Chargers waived NT Kwame Geathers from injured reserve Tuesday, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. The Chargers ruled Geathers was healthy enough to play and released him as a result. He is now eligible to play for any team except for San Diego.
The results of an MRI have revealed that Chargers nose tackle Kwame Geathers is dealing with a sprained and hyperextended left knee, U-T San Diego reports. It's a relief after Geathers appeared to suffer a serious injury in Sunday's preseason game. He isn't expected to miss an overly extensive amount of time, according to the report.
Chargers defensive tackle Kwame Geathers was carted off the field with an apparent leg injury during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the 49ers.
