The Bengals have added to their depth at linebacker by promoting rookie Dan Skuta from their practice squad.

Cincinnati waived cornerback Geoffrey Pope, a second-year player from Howard who appeared in the first four games.

Skuta signed with the Bengals on April 30 as an undrafted free agent from Grand Valley State. He played in all four preseason games but failed to make the final cut and was signed to the practice squad.

The Bengals (3-1) play at Baltimore (3-1) on Sunday for sole possession of first place in the AFC North.
