Bengals' Devon Still, Alex Smith placed on injured reserve

The Cincinnati Bengals place defensive tackle, Devon Still, and tight end, Alex Smith, on the injured reserve list, officially ending their 2013 season, reports Mike Wilkening of NBCSports.

The Bengals face the San Diego Chargers Wild Card weekend and they will do it without the services of Still and Smith.  Still, who suffered a back injury, missed the final two games of the regular season.  Smith injured his wrist in Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens.

The Cincy Cats filled one spot on the roster, signing veteran defensive tackle, Ogemdi Nwagbuo.  Nwagbuo played one game for the Detroit lions in 2012 and appeared in 36 regular season games from 2009 through 2011 for the San Diego Chargers.

With depth in the playoffs at a premium, especially at the TE position as Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham are ailing, the Bengals face the wrong side of the clock with the ill-fated timing of losing two key backup players.

Maybe Nwagbuo will give some old Bolts' secrets to Marvin Lewis and the boys.
