Bengals News: Cincinnati places LB Jayson DiManche on injured reserve

The Cincinnati Bengals lost their third linebacker to injured reserve on Monday, posing a severe challenge to the team's depth chart.

Per Curtis Crabtree of NBC's Pro Football Talk, "the Bengals placed Jayson DiManche on injured reserve after suffering a fractured forearm in Sunday’s 14-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers."

DiManche has appeared in all twelve of the team's games this season, making one start. He has recorded just ten tackles and a fumble recovery this season, but has been mainly used as a special teams player by the Bengals.

The Bengals have not yet found a replacement to take Jayson DiManche's roster spot as of this writing. According to Crabtree, the team could look at promoting LJ Fort from the practice squad. Fort has appeared in one game (vs. the Seattle Seahawks) this season.
