The Cincinnati Bengals signed defensive lineman Zach Kerr off of the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad on Wednesday.

Kerr was elevated for the Cardinals’ Wild Card matchup on Monday and reverted back to the practice squad on Tuesday.

In 95 career games (16 starts), Kerr recorded 166 tackles, 9.5 sacks, seven passes defensed, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.
