Bengals Send Linebacker Emmanuel Lamur To Season-Ending IR

Third-year linebacker is just the second Bengals player lost to a season-ending injury.

The Bengals on Monday placed strong-side linebacker Emmanuel Lamur on the season-ending injured reserve list.

Lamur suffered a left knee injury and was carted off the field in the second quarter of Sunday's 24-16 home win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Lamur, in his third season, played in every regular-season game and finished with 32 tackles, a shared sack, three passes defensed and a fumble recovery. He also had eight special teams tackles and a special teams fumble recovery.

Lamur became just the second Bengals regular to go on season-ending injured reserve, joining cornerback Darqueze Dennard. Lamur played 342 snaps for the Bengals this season, but he's headed for free agency.

With room on the 53-man roster, the Bengals made a corresponding roster move and promoted rookie linebacker Trevor Roach from the practice squad.

The 6-foot-2, 237-pound Roach joined the Bengals for 2015 as a college free agent out of Nebraska. He was on the practice squad for the entire regular season. He played in all four Bengals preseason games and made 12 tackles, ranking fifth on the team.
