Bengals Sign CB Fletcher; CB Jones In a Boot

The Bengals made a roster move today due to an injury:

(Cornerback) David Jones has been seen in a boot and he wasn’t in the night practice. Lewis would only call it a “foot injury,” and said Jones wouldn’t practice Saturday night. The Bengals just got a cornerback out of a boot and on to the field when rookie Morgan Trent made a quick recovery from a foot stress fracture. If Jones has something similar, it’s a six-to-eight week injury.

Lewis didn’t sound optimistic. Asked if it was day-to-day he said, “Probably not.

The team signed cornerback Jamar Fletcher, who was with the Bengals in 2008, recording 21 tackles, three passes defensed, a fumble recovery and two special-teams tackles” in 11 games played and two starts. From 2005 until 2008, Fletcher played on four different teams — Chargers, Lions, Texans, and the Bengals.
