A day after escaping Tampa Bay with a narrow 14-13 win over the Buccaneers, the Bengals have made a roster move, placing linebacker Jayson DiManche on their injured reserve list, the team announced today (Twitter link). DiManche sustained a broken forearm during yesterday’s game, which will end his season, per Coley Harvey of ESPN.com (via Twitter).
DiManche, 24, is in his second year with the Bengals, serving as a reserve linebacker on defense and a regular contributor on special teams. In 12 contests this season, the Southern Illinois product recorded 11 tackles and forced a fumble, though he won’t get a chance to add to those totals now that he’s landed on IR.
The Bengals have yet to announce a corresponding roster addition, so for now the team is carrying 52 players and keeping one opening on its roster. The club figures to promote or sign a player at some point this week.
