CINCINNATI (AP) -Receiver Antonio Chatman was released Friday by the Cincinnati Bengals, who had hoped he could take a more prominent role this season.
Chatman played in only three games last season because of groin injuries and missed the entire preseason because of a pulled hamstring. The Bengals were hoping he would compete for the No. 3 receiving job, which is open while Chris Henry serves an eight-game suspension.
The Bengals also signed rookie center Dan Santucci off the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad. The Bengals drafted Santucci in the seventh round in April out of Notre Dame. He played in all four preseason games and was waived on Sept. 2.
Santucci signed with the Colts' practice squad before the Bengals decided to bring him back on the 53-man roster.
The Bengals also made two moves involving their practice squad. Tight end Tim Day was placed on an injured list because of a hamstring injury. Rookie receiver Jesse Holley of North Carolina, who was with the team in the preseason, was added to the squad.
