The Cincinnati Bengals have announced the following roster moves:
- Placed linebacker Jordan Evans on the Reserve/Injured list.
- Placed offensive guard Jackson Carman and running back Samaje Perine on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Evans, a fifth-year player out of Oklahoma, suffered a left knee injury during Sunday’s game vs. Green Bay. It’s reportedly a torn ACL. He had played in all five games this season, and had four tackles on defense and one on special teams.
Carman, a second-round pick out of Clemson, has started the last three games at right guard. It’s unclear who will start in his place if he’s unable to play vs. the Detroit Lions in Week 6.
Perine, a fifth-year player out of Oklahoma, has been the Bengals’ backup running back this season, though he was the bell-cow back Sunday vs. the Green Bay Packers with Joe Mixon limited due to injury. Perine finished the day as the Bengals’ leading rusher with 59 yards rushing on 11 carries, an average of 5.4 yards per carry. He added four receptions for 24 yards, including his first score of the season.
