Bengals place WR Mohamed Sanu (foot) on IR
Late last week, Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu suffered a stress fracture in practice. On Tuesday, the team placed him on the IR list, ending his season.
But late last week, Sanu suffered a stress fracture in his foot during practice. On Tuesday, the Bengals placed him on the IR list, ending his season.
Sanu was taken in the third round of this year's draft (NOT the second round as he originally thought). Though he threw a 73-yard touchdown pass on the first play in Week 3, it took him a while to get acclimated in the receiving corps.
But in those final three games, he caught 11 passes and seemed to have figured out his role.
“It's unfortunate for Mo and for us because of what he was doing,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “But we will pick it up and move forward.”
Without Sanu around, look for Andrew Hawkins and rookie Marvin Jones to get more playing time.
