Bengals add John Conner for playoff run

In 2010, the Jets drafted fullback John Conner out of Kentucky. He became a darling of HBO’s Hard Knocks, a hard-hitting blocker about whom coach Rex Ryan routinely raved.

Earlier this season, the Jets cleared Conner off the roster with an injury settlement. They didn’t rule out the possibility of bringing him back.

Before they could, the Bengals intervened, signing Conner for a stretch run that may result in a playoff berth.

A Cincinnati-area native, Conner fills the spot created by the placement of fullbackChris Pressley on injured reserve. Pressley suffered a knee injury in Thursday night’s win over the Eagles. Pressley had appeared in all 14 games this season, starting seven of them.
