Teams must trim their rosters from 80 to 75 by Tuesday afternoon. The Cincinnati Bengals are getting their work done early. After releasing wide receiver Antonio Bryant, Cincinnati waived linebacker Rashad Jeanty on Monday.
R. Jeanty
Jeanty, winner of the team’s Ed Block Courage Award, was waived on the basis of injury (failed physical). The backup strongside linebacker broke his fibula on the opening kickoff of the Wild Card loss to the Jets this past January. He underwent a medical procedure in spring and missed training camp in order to rehab in Florida.

After entering the NFL as a former CFL star in 2006, Jeanty earned a reputation as a ferocious hitter and reliable leader. Coaches greatly appreciated the way he helped Rey Maualuga navigate his rookie season.

The Bengals have plenty of depth to replace Jeanty -- especially given that 2009 third-round pick Michael Johnson has turned heads since moving from defensive end to strongside linebacker.

In other Bengals news, Geoff Hobson of reports that the team has also put backup safety Tom Nelson on PUP (ankle).
