Bengals hurting at CB, place Jones on IR
By James Walker
The Cincinnati Bengals suffered another blow to their secondary Tuesday. The team announced cornerback Adam Jones was placed on injured reserve with a herniated disc in his neck.
Jones suffered the injury in the second half of Cincinnati's 39-32 defeat to the Atlanta Falcons. Jones started in place of injured starter Johnathan Joseph, who missed the game with an ankle injury.
I talked to Joseph in the locker room after Sunday's game in Atlanta and he said he didn't feel right after testing the ankle before the game. There is a better chance of him playing Sunday against the Miami Dolphins (3-3) at home, and the Bengals (2-4) could certainly use him in this must-win game. Cincinnati gave up 201 yards to Falcons receiver Roddy White on Sunday.
