With Randy Bullock questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Jaguars, the Bengals have added another kicker to the active roster. ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter reports (via Twitter) that the team has signed Marshall Koehn. To make room on the roster, the Bengals waived safety Derron Smith (via Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer on Twitter).
Bullock was limited throughout the week, and he missed practice on Wednesday. Despite dealing with a back issue, the 27-year-old has been relatively efficient this season. Bullock has connected on all 14 of his extra point attempts as well as eight of his ten field goal attempts. Koehn, a 2016 undrafted free agent out of Iowa, has yet to make an NFL appearance, but he converted two of his three field goal attempts while playing with the Vikings during the preseason. He connected on nearly 78-percent of his field goal attempts and 96-percent of his extra point attempts during his collegiate career.
Smith joined the Bengals organization as a fifth-round pick in 2015. He appeared in 31 games during his two-plus seasons with the organization, but he only made three appearances this year.
