Bengals place Marvin Jones on IR, sign Greg Little
Tuesday October 14th, 2014

The Cincinnati Bengals placed wide receiver Marvin Jones on injured reserve and signed former Browns receiver Greg Little on Tuesday.

Jones was the No. 2 receiver for the Bengals last year when he recorded 51 receptions for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns. He has not played any games this season due to foot and ankle injuries. 

The team also released receiver Colin Lockett, signed receiver Cobi Hamilton to the practice squad and waived linebacker Khairi Fortt.

The Bengals are also without No. 1 receiver A.J. Green after he re-aggravated a toe injury last week. He is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.

To make up for the losses to the receiving corps, the Bengals signed former Browns receiver Greg Little. He had 155 receptions for 1,821 yards and eight touchdowns in three seasons with Cleveland.
