The Bengals filled their void at fullback Saturday, signing ex-Jets FB John Conner, per reports.

Conner replaces FB Chris Pressley, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first quarter of Cincinnati's Thursday night win at Philadelphia. Pressley, who played in all 14 games (seven starts) this season, has been placed on injured reserve.

A fifth-round pick of the Jets in 2010, Conner appeared in three games with the Jets this season but was waived in October after suffering knee and hamstring injuries.
