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

Odom, who's tied for the NFL lead with eight sacks, was hurt during Sunday's 28-17 loss to the Houston Texans. He had surgery and is out for the season.
