The Bengals still don’t know how long starter Kyle Cook’s going to be out with an ankle injury, so they signed veteran center Jeff Faine Wednesday, according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Faine worked out Tuesday, and they must have liked what they saw.
Faine has been looking for work since the Buccaneers released him in March. The former Browns first-rounder has also played with the Saints.
Adding him keeps the Bengals from having two rookies in the middle going into the opener.
If Cook’s out for the season, he’d be the second Bengals offensive lineman to miss the year, after Travelle Wharton blew out his knee in the preseason opener.
