Earlier on Monday, the Cincinnati Bengals announced that they signed defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi to replace Geno Atkins, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve after suffering an ACL tear Thursday night.
Only, it's he's not allowed to right now.
The NFL announced that Bilukidi's contract has been voiced because he doesn't have the "proper documentation" to work in the United States. Bilukidi is Canadian.

When he was cut from the Oakland Raiders two weeks ago, Bilukidi's contract was terminated and his work permit had thus expired instead of transferring over.
This is merely a procedural matter and once his documentation (from his end) is properly filed, he'll be allowed to sign a new deal with Cincinnati or any other NFL team. As it stands, their 53-man roster is one man short.
