Additional roster moves

The Bengals made a series of moves on Friday that included signing quarterback Jeff Rowe to the team's practice squad.

Special teams ace Herana-Daze Jones and backup center Kyle Cook were both sent to injury reserve. Cook injured his toe during warmups before the 31-22 loss to the Dallas Cowboys (only the Bengals suffer season-ending injuries during WARMUPS). Cook's injury likely forces Bobbie Williams into the role of backup center, in case Eric Ghiaciuc goes down.

The Bengals signed Geoffrey Pope, from the practice squad to replace Herana-Daze Jones, giving the Bengals 10 defensive backs. Nate Lawrie was also signed off the team's practice squad giving the team three tight ends... a position that hasn't contributed much this season.

With the signing of Rowe, and two players signed away, the Bengals now have eight players on the team's practice squad which includes the exemption of Carl-Johan Bjork -- so they can sign one more player.

Cook and Herana-Daze Jones increases the total of players on Injury Reserve to seven.
