The Cincinnati Bengals have placed TE E. Alex Smith (wrist) and DT Devon Still (back) on Injured Reserve. The team also signed free-agent DT Ogemdi Nwagbuo (Lions). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Smith has been a nice fallback plan with fellow tight ends Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert nicked up. Tight end turned fullback Orson Charles saw some work in Smith's absence last week and may be called on to do so again as the Bengals open the playoffs this weekend.

The Cincinnati Bengals signed free-agent FB/TE E. Alex Smith (Browns) to a one-year deal with a $840,000 base salary and a $65,000 signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Smith made a strong first impression with 41 catches for 367 yards in his rookie season, but that's now been 8 years ago. Those 41 grabs, in fact, have been a single-season career high for Smith who only caught 28 passes and 1 TD over the past 3 seasons with the Browns. In other words, it's going to take a Jermaine Gresham injury for Smith to gain any fantasy traction.
