The Bengals have placed defensive tackle Pat Sims on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday after learning his left ankle was more severely hurt than initially thought. Sims sat out a 35-7 loss in Pittsburgh with the injury, but hoped to be recovered before the end of the season. Coach Marvin Lewis says additional tests indicated the injury was too severe. Sims wore a protective boot on the left foot Wednesday and declines to talk about the injury, other than to say he is disappointed he won't get a chance to play again. The Bengals (7-5) have signed defensive tackle Nick Hayden to take his spot. Hayden was Carolina's sixth-round pick in 2008 and started 10 games last season. He was released in the final roster cut before the season.

Get ready for a three-game winning streak and a wildcard spot in the playoffs. (And then a first-round ass-kicking in the playoffs. But, hey, I’ll take it!) The first hurdle of what should be a three-game string of victories is...
