Marvin Lewis says TE Shuler flunked physical and Brandon Tate will indeed return punts for #bengals
Additionally, Hobson states that a TE may not get the spot. The team may opt to fill it with another position.
Extra spot per Shuler for #bengals may not be a TE. Lewis says only dressing 2 an option on Sunday
