Bengals change backup linebackers

CINCINNATI -- The Bengals changed backup linebackers Wednesday, waiving rookie Keyon Whiteside and claiming Ladairis Jackson off waivers from Washington.

Jackson, in his second NFL season, was inactive for the Redskins' first six games. He didn't play last Sunday against Buffalo.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis was the defensive coordinator at Washington last season.

Whiteside was a fifth-round draft pick by Indianapolis. The Bengals got him off waivers on Sept. 1, and he was inactive for their first six games.
