CINCINNATI -- Defensive tackle Orien Harris has signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, who had an open roster spot after defensive end Antwan Odom tore his right Achilles tendon.

Harris played in 16 games for the Bengals last season. He was traded to St. Louis on May 7 for halfback Brian Leonard, then was traded to Detroit on July 22. He made the Lions' roster, was inactive for the first game, then was waived.

Odom got hurt during a 28-17 loss to Houston on Sunday. He had surgery and is out for the season.
