 Cincinnati,  OH  (Sports Network)  -  The  Cincinnati Bengals  waived  veteran
 quarterback  John  Skelton, and  placed  running  back  Bernard Scott  on  the
 physically  unable  to perform  list as  part of  a series  of roster moves on
 Saturday to reach the NFL's mandated roster limit of 53 players.
 
 The  team  also placed linebacker  Emmanuel Lamur  on the injured reserve list
 with a shoulder injury.
 
 Skelton,  a former starter  in Arizona, lost out to Josh Johnson in his bid to
 back  up starting  QB Andy Dalton. Scott, meanwhile, will remain with the team
 for  rehabilitation  and meetings, but may  not practice for Weeks 1 through 6
 of the regular season.
 
 The  Bengals  also released veteran  offensive tackle Dennis Roland and waived
 the  following 18  players: fullback  John Conner,  long snapper  Bryce Davis,
 safety  Tony Dye,  offensive tackle Reid Fragel, wide receivers Cobi Hamilton,
 Taveon  Rogers and  Roy Roundtree,  running  back Daniel  Herron, center  T.J.
 Johnson,  cornerbacks  Chris Lewis-Harris,  Shaun Prater and Onterio McCalebb,
 defensive  end  Dontay  Moch,  linebackers J.K.  Schaffer  and  Bruce  Taylor,
 defensive tackle Terrence Stephens, and offensive guard John Sullen.
 
 Cincinnati will open its season on Sept. 8, when it visits the Chicago Bears.
