FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys released quarterback Kellen Moore on Saturday, completing undrafted rookie Cooper Rush's surprising rise to the backup job behind reigning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Dak Prescott.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals signed fourth-year cornerback Bene Benwikere (ben-WICK'-er-ee) on Wednesday.
The 6-foot cornerback was Carolina's fifth-round draft pick in 2014. He started 14 games in three seasons with Carolina, including four last year before he was released. He finished the season on the practice squads of Miami and Green Bay.
Benwikere has two interceptions, three fumble recoveries and one sack in his career.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi has been placed on injured reserve because of a neck injury, and cornerback Bene Benwikere has been claimed off waivers.
Misi, a seven-year starter, missed the past two games because of the injury and is likely to be sidelined the rest of the season.
The Panthers released Benwikere last week after they allowed 503 yards passing by the Falcons. He was targeted for nearly half that total.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers are shaking up their secondary, cutting starting cornerback Bene Benwikere.

The moves come in the wake of the Panthers giving up 503 yards passing to Matt Ryan and 300 yards receiving to Julio Jones in a 48-33 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
