Injuries have forced the Bengals to adjust in the secondary throughout the season.
Texans DE Antonio Smith was fined $21,000 for kicking Dolphins OG Richie Incognito. Smith said he will appeal the fine.
The Bengals have the makings of solid CB depth, but as the preseason began, injuries had taken their toll on the position.
As the Bengals trim their roster late this summer, they are likely going to have some interesting, and tough, decisions.
The Bengals and Texans released their inactives for Saturday's wild-card matchup.
The Bengals have acquired S Taylor Mays from the 49ers in exchange for an undisclosed draft choice.
All indications point toward the 49ers making the re-signing of fifth-year free-agent FS Dashon Goldson a relatively top priority.
Rookie SS Taylor Mays was one of the bigger disappointments among a team full of underachievers, according to NFC West Whispers.
Although the team hasn't admitted it, we hear that SS Taylor Mays' fatigue is a big reason why the 49ers are giving more snaps to Reggie Smith, according to NFC West Whispers.
After cutting the cord with a very angry Michael Lewis, the 49ers couldn't have been more pleased with the job rookie Taylor Mays did in his first start replacing Lewis at strong safety.
SS Michael Lewis had his request granted on Monday when the 49ers released him.
After leaving the team Friday, Niners starting SS Michael Lewis has requested his release.
49ers SS Michael Lewis has left the team for personal reasons and will likely not play Sunday vs. the Falcons.
The 49ers announced Friday that they have signed first-round OT Anthony Davis to a five-year contract and second-round S Taylor Mays and third-round LB Navorro Bowman to four-year deals.
Although he has great physical tools tailor-made for the pro game, we hear it could be a while before Niners S Taylor Mays cracks the starting lineup.
With both of the Niners' starting cornerbacks conspicuous by their absences so far this offseason and rookie Taylor Mays a nonfactor thus far, team insiders believe the current state of the secondary is cause for real concern.
