Bengals place Devon Still, Alex Smith on injured reserve

AP

The Bengals’ depth has taken a hit entering the postseason.

The club announced Monday it had placed tight end Alex Smith and defensive tackle Devon Still on injured reserve.

Still, 24, appeared in 10 games as a reserve in 2013, notching seven tackles. He had missed the final two games of the regular season with a back injury.

Smith suffered a dislocated wrist in Sunday’s win vs. Baltimore. The 31-year-old Smith played in all 16 regular-season games for the Bengals, catching three passes for 12 yards and one touchdown.

The Bengals filled one of the open roster spots by signing veteran defensive tackle Ogemdi Nwagbuo, who appeared in one game for Detroit in 2012. The 28-year-old Nwagbuo has appared in 36 regular-season games since 2009, the majority of which with San Diego from 2009 through 2011.

The Bengals play the Chargers in the wild-card round Sunday in Cincinnati.

  1. The Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals DESTROYED joe flacco and the baltimore ravens with both their #1 and #2 tight end out of the game…. and…. their #3 tight end Alex Smith (above) out asfter dislocated his wrist in the 3rd quarter.

    D E S T R O Y E D ! ! !

  2. Too bad there can’t be a temporary free agent signing period right before the playoffs start – the Bengals could sign Big Ben, Campbell, Flacco, Ryan, Fitzpatrick or about 25 other QBs to give them a chance at a playoff win.

    4 picks? Really? Since you’re fairly new to the whole playoff thing, here’s some wisdom – that stat line won’t cut it on the big stage. See you back home in a few days.

  3. The ravens and steeler trolls can’t stand the fact that they get to watch the bengals in the playoffs while they sit on their couch in misery.

  4. I am enjoying the sniping comments from fans of teams that have nothing else to do now. The Bengals will miss these two teammates at practice, while your boys are working on their golf game.

  5. Alex Smith on IR and Gresham and Eifert both injured and inactive last week.

    Do they have a healthy tight end to put on the field?

  7. UPDATE:
    Future Ravens and Steelers games will now be broadcast on the History Channel, since all their fans can talk about is the past.
