Cornerback David Jones could be out for awhile; Bengals sign Jamar Fletcher

The Bengals singed cornerback Jamar Fletcher, the team announced Sunday morning. Fletcher 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, Bengals -- before re-signing with Cincinnati this weekend in response to David Jones' injury he suffered on Saturday.

The signing brings the roster back up to 79 signed players with the 80th being Andre Smith, whenever he signs.

As for David Jones, Geoff Hobson writes:

(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.
