The Bengals have just announced several roster moves, the most noteworthy of which having placed rookie WR Mohamed Sanu on the Injured Reserve list, ending what was shaping up to be a very good rookie season. He still has a bright future as the Bengals’ #2 receiver next to A.J. Green if he can stay healthy next year and continue the production her was having before fracturing his foot during practice last week. He finishes his first NFL season with 16 receptions for 154 yards and four TDs, and also threw a 73-yard TD pass, and had five rushes for 15 yards.
In his place, the Bengals opted not to go the free agent route, but instead promoted RB Daniel Herron from practice squad. Herron was the Bengals 6th-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft. The former Buckeye had a less-than-stellar preseason, and just barely made the practice squad, so don’t expect to see him get many, if any carries.
With a vacant practice squad spot open, the team signed former UC Bearcats receiver WR Vidal Hazelton, who spent the preseason with the Bengals before being waived prior to final cuts.
