The Cincinnati Bengals lost another player to a season-ending injury Saturday when they placed offensive lineman T.J. Johnson on Injured Reserve.

Johnson was a late addition to the injury report Friday with a pectoral issue.

A fourth-year player, Johnson appeared in all 13 games this season with four starts.

To fill Johnson’s spot on the 53-man roster, the Bengals activated running back Jarveon Williams from the practice squad. Williams joined the Bengals as undrafted college free agent last spring and has been on the practice squad for Games 1-13.
