The Bengals signed Spain (foot) to the practice squad Friday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
Spain was surprisingly cut by the Bills last week while dealing with a foot injury he now appears to have recovered from. The Bengals have a need for quality depth along the interior of the offensive line, so Spain could be a candidate to bump to the active roster at some point.
Spain (foot) was released by the Bills on Wednesday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN reports.
This is a surprising development since Spain was a starter and was re-signed to a three-year deal this offseason. His foot injury is not believed to be long term in nature. Also, the team may have lost fellow starter Cody Ford for a stretch after Ford suffered a knee injury in Monday's loss to Kansas City. It appears as if Spain may have fallen out of favor with the coaching staff for reasons unknown, though Spain had a recently deleted tweet that suggested as such. The Bills may have an eye on injured starting lineman Jon Feliciano rejoining the lineup soon, at which point they can reshuffle their starting unit.
Spain (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Spain started the practice week as a full participant but was watching practice from the sidelines Saturday, and now he'll miss a second straight game. Ike Boettger is next in line to start at left guard in Spain's place, although Brian Winters is also a candidate for the job.
Spain (foot) did not practice Saturday and is listed as questionable for Monday's game against Kansas City.
Spain logged a rare full-limited-DNP practice schedule this week, so he's clearly a question mark for Monday's important game between two of the AFC's best teams. The Bills have decent depth on their offensive line, so Spain's potential absence wouldn't be a crisis, but he's a solid guard and the offense runs smoother when he's out there.
Spain (foot) was a full-go during Thursday's practice.
Spain was forced to sit out of Tuesday's game with a sore foot, but as evidenced by this news, it appears he won't miss more time. Now appearing to work through the soreness, expect Spain to assume his usual starting role at left guard for Monday's game against the Chiefs.
Spain (foot) is inactive for Tuesday's game versus the Titans, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.
Spain went to the training staff due to a sore foot just hours before kickoff, and they decided to hold out the left guard as a precaution. Ike Boettger or Brian Winters may slot into the starting left guard role Tuesday.
Spain will return to the Bills on a three-year deal, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Spain signed with the Bills last offseason and started 16 games at left guard in 2019 without allowing a sack. Spain's deal commits him to the Bills for three more seasons before free agency begins.
Spain (illness) has no injury designation prior to Sunday's game against the Ravens.
It seems it was a 24-hour bug. The 28-year-old has played every snap this season and will aim to do so again Sunday.
Spain was held out of Thursday's practice due to an illness, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The starting left guard still has plenty of time to get ready for Sunday's big showdown against the Ravens, though a return to practice in some fashion Friday would give the Bills' running game a little more certainty heading into Week 14.
Spain (foot) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Spain was held out of Wednesday's practice due to a foot injury, and he's already resumed practicing in full. He's on track to draw his usual start at right guard versus the Eagles on Sunday.
Spain sat out Wednesday's first practice of the week due to a foot injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The starting left guard was able to do some work off to the side, so perhaps the Bills aren't too worried yet about his status for this week's game against the Eagles.
Spain (ankle) is back at practice Monday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
This will be Spain's first practice since getting injured in the third preseason game. With Mitch Morse returning, it also means the Bills will have a healthy starting line for Sunday's opener at the Jets, though it's worth noting the starting five has barely played together as one unit due to a myriad of injuries all summer.
Spain was seen leaving the Bills' locker room after Friday's preseason game against the Lions with crutches and a walking boot, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.
It's unclear as to when Spain suffered the injury, but this is a bad sign for Buffalo's projected starting left guard. He'll likely undergo further testing before the team announces a diagnosis.

Minor injury aside, Spain looks like the clear starter at left guard for the Bills' new-look offensive line.
Spain was absent from Thursday's practice due to an ankle injury, The Buffalo News reports.
The Bills added a slew of veteran linemen in the offseason, and Spain has seemingly wrestled his way into the starting left guard role. We'll see if the injury is minor enough that he can re-assume that spot quickly.
Spain, who missed some time with a thumb injury during spring work, was practicing with the top unit during the first day of training camp Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Spain was signed as a free agent this offseason after starting 48 of 50 games during his last stint with Tennessee, though the two starting guard jobs are up for grabs for the Bills. Spain being healthy to start training camp bodes well for his chances.
Spain (thumb) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.
Spain, who will compete for one of the starting guard spots this summer, was ruled out indefinitely after undergoing thumb surgery a couple weeks ago, but he is back Tuesday doing limited work with a non-contact jersey. He will likely be eased back into taking contact as mandatory minicamp approaches.
Spain underwent thumb surgery last week and has no timetable for a return, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Spain suffered a thumb injury in OTAs last week and underwent the procedure shortly after. The specifics of the injury are unknown, so it's tough to gage how long of an absence he could be facing.
Spain agreed Wednesday with the Bills on a one-year contract, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.
The Bills have opted for quantity over quality while rebuilding their offensive line, forgoing the top of the free-agent market to sign a slew of lower-ceiling players with experience as starters. The 330-pound Spain fits the mold, with 48 starts in 50 games over the past four seasons for the Titans. He should compete for a starting job in Buffalo.
Spain (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup with Indianapolis.
Spain was limited in practice this week but is expected to be a full go Sunday, barring any setbacks. He's expected to see his usual role as the team's starting left guard.
