AFC Inactives, Week 8

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Here’s who IS active in the AFC: Bengals CB Leon Hall.

And here’s who is out:

Dexter McCluster, WR, Chiefs: He has a high ankle sprain, and it looks like he’ll be out the next couple of weeks. Not only do the Chiefs lose a receiving and running threat, but they lose a dynamic kickoff and punt returner. CB Javier Arenas is expected to take over McCluster's duties.

Chinedum Ndukwe, S, Bengals: CB Johnathan Joseph and SS Roy Williams also are out, and when you pair that news with the fact Ndukwe won’t play, that’s a bad, bad sign for the Cincinnati secondary. Tom Nelson – with limited experience and limited talent – should get plenty of playing time in Ndukwe’s place, though Reggie Nelson will start.

Jeremy Mincey, DE, Jaguars:
Earlier in the week, he was named starter ahead of first-round bust Derrick Harvey. But then he broke his hand. So, he’s out and Harvey is back in the starting lineup.

Aaron Maybin, LB, Bills: The freefall of Maybin continues.

Bengals waive beloved leader Rashad Jeanty

Posted by Andy Benoit

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 Bengals.com reports that the team has also put backup safety Tom Nelson on PUP (ankle).
