Bengals sign DE Adeyanju, Fanene to IR
The Cincinnati Bengals have signed fifth-year NFL defensive end Victor Adeyanju (Ah-DAY'-ahn-joo) and put Jonathan Fanene (Fuh-NAY'-nay) on injured reserve.
Fanene hasn't played since suffering a hamstring injury Oct. 24 at Atlanta, and saw only limited action earlier because of hamstring problems. He played in every 2009 game for the Bengals.
Adeyanju was released Sept. 4 by the St. Louis Rams. A fourth-round draft pick from Indiana University, he played four seasons for the Rams, with 26 starts. He had three sacks, four fumble recoveries and an 89-yard fumble return for a touchdown.
