Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi has been placed on season-ending IR. He suffered a foot injury in the Bengals’ playoff win against the Las Vegas Raiders. The injured reserve designation will end his playoff run.
The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

Ogunjobi was an offseason acquisition for the Bengals, signing a one-year deal in March of 2021. In 16 regular season games with Cincinnati, he had seven sacks and 49 combined tackles, including 12 tackles for a loss. His sacks were a career best following four seasons as a Cleveland Brown.
The Bengals secured a 26-19 victory at home in the Wild Card round of the playoffs; their first playoff win in 31 years. This ended the longest active streak without a playoff win in all four major sports. They will play the number one seed Titans next, without a key piece of their defensive line in Ogunjobi.
