Bengals place Andre Smith on IR
By James Walker
As expected, the Cincinnati Bengals placed former first-round pick Andre Smith on injured reserve Saturday, which ends his 2010 season.
For the second consecutive year, Smith broke a bone in his left foot. It happened during practice Wednesday. He started the past three games at right tackle, and the Bengals have to decide this offseason whether to extend his contract from four to six years.
Cincinnati signed cornerback Rico Murray from the practice squad to fill the roster spot Smith vacated. The Bengals (2-6) will travel to face the Indianapolis Colts (5-3) on Sunday.
