Bengals hurting at CB, place Jones on IR

The Cincinnati Bengals suffered another blow to their secondary Tuesday. The team announced cornerback Adam Jones was placed on injured reserve with a herniated disc in his neck.

Jones suffered the injury in the second half of Cincinnati's 39-32 defeat to the Atlanta Falcons. Jones started in place of injured starter Johnathan Joseph, who missed the game with an ankle injury.

I talked to Joseph in the locker room after Sunday's game in Atlanta and he said he didn't feel right after testing the ankle before the game. There is a better chance of him playing Sunday against the Miami Dolphins (3-3) at home, and the Bengals (2-4) could certainly use him in this must-win game. Cincinnati gave up 201 yards to Falcons receiver Roddy White on Sunday.
