CB Fletcher re-signed

Posted Aug 2, 2009

GEORGETOWN, Ky. - David Jones' foot injury must indeed not be day-to-day and must be serious with Sunday morning's announcement that the Bengals have re-signed cornerback Jamar Fletcher.

The 5-10, 185-pound Fletcher played 11 games with the Bengals last season before they chose not to pursue him in free agency. But Jones' injury left just five cornerbacks.

After joining the club Sept. 23, Fletcher had two starts, 21 tackles, three passes defensed, a fumble recovery and two special-teams tackles.

Fletcher, who turns 30 at the end of this month, is a 2001 fist-round choice of the Dolphins out of Wisconsin with 105 career games. He's also been with San Diego, Detroit and Houston while logging seven interceptions.

He'll be on the field for Sunday's 3 p.m. practice.

The Bengals are now one player under the roster limit of 80. If the boot he is wearing is any indication, Jones could be out anywhere from two to eight weeks, but the club isn't saying anything about the injury.

That would indicate Bernard is going to miss the first game of his two-year NFL career 1 p.m. Sunday against the Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium.

    Just the mere mention of a rookie quarterback coming into Paul Brown Stadium for Sunday’s 1 p.m. game against Jacksonville can send a shiver through Bengaldom. It hasn't been easy. But QBs - rookie or veteran - have had tough sledding at PBS in the last 13 games.
