Bengals IR Bobbie Williams

The Cincinnati Bengals have placed offensive guard Bobbie Williams on injured reserve with a fractured right ankle. Williams broke his ankle against the Houston Texans on Sunday. With the exception of a suspension, Williams has never missed a game since taking over as the Bengals' starting offensive guard in 2004.

The Bengals replaced him on the roster with offensive guard Otis Hudson, promoting him from the practice squad.

Hudson is a first-year NFL player. He was on the roster for the first four games this year, but was inactive each week, due in part to a knee injury suffered in preseason.

He was waived Oct. 6 and had been on the practice squad since Oct. 7. A fifth-round Bengals draft choice in 2010, he spent his rookie season on the practice squad.
