Bengals ink Randall to fill DT voidPublished 1:43am Wednesday, November 6, 2013
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals have signed defensive tackle Kheeston Randall to fill the roster spot of All-Pro Geno Atkins, out for the season with a torn knee ligament.
Randall was the Dolphins’ seventh-round pick last year and played in 12 games. He was waived by Miami on Aug. 31.
Atkins tore the ACL in his right knee during a 22-20 overtime loss in Miami last Thursday.
The Bengals put Atkins on injured reserve Monday and replaced him by signing defensive tackle Christo Bilukidi, a sixth-round pick of the Raiders last year. The deal was later voided by the NFL because Bilukidi didn’t have a current work permit from Canada to keep playing in the United States after the Raiders waived him, so the Bengals signed Randall on Tuesday.
