The Bengals today made the following roster moves:
* Signed FB John Conner, a third-year player from Kentucky. Conner (5-11, 245) is a Greater Cincinnati native, a product of Lakota West High School. He was a fifth-round draft choice of the New York Jets in 2010 and played in 35 Jets games with 10 starts before being waived this past Oct. 18. He was on the Jets roster for this season’s first six games, with three games played including two starts. He has career totals of 21 rushes for 88 yards (4.2) with two touchdowns, and four receptions for 18 yards (4.5). He played in every Jets game in 2010 and ’11.
* Placed fourth-year FB Chris Pressley on the Reserve/Injured list. Pressley suffered a knee injury in Thursday’s game at Philadelphia. He played in all of this season’s 14 games, with seven starts. His only offensive touch was a one-yard TD reception.
