Bengals ink Gilberry

Published 3:16am Wednesday, September 19, 2012

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday signed free-agent defensive end Wallace Gilberry and placed defensive end Jamaal Anderson on injured reserve.

Anderson, who played in the first two games this season, tore a quad tendon in last week’s victory over Cleveland.

The 6-foot-2, 275-pound Gilberry is a fifth-year player out of Alabama who played from 2008 through 2011 with Kansas City. He signed with Tampa Bay as an unrestricted free agent before this season but was released on Friday.

He saw action for Kansas City in 54 games, including one in the postseason, and played in every game from 2009-11. He has 14 career sacks, including a career-high seven in 2010 when the Chiefs won the AFC West.

Cancer claims Sabol

NEW YORK (AP) — NFL Films President Steve Sabol has died from brain cancer. He was 69.

The NFL said Sabol died Tuesday, 18 months after he was diagnosed with a tumor on the left side of his brain. Sabol started working with his father Ed, NFL Films’ founder, in 1964, and their innovations revolutionized sports broadcasting and helped make the NFL the country’s most popular sport.

Ed was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last year. The two received the Lifetime Achievement Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in 2003.
