Found September 18, 2012 on DraftAce:

Cincinnati Bengals 3rd-round pick Mohamed Sanu has yet to see any meaningful action, taking the field for a grand total of five plays through two games.

Sanu was used for five plays in the season opener against Baltimore, all five of which were running plays. Sanu was active again in Sunday against the Browns, but did not see the field.

The Bengals have used six receivers so far this year, including Sanu, but Sanu is the only one who has yet to run a route. 5th-round pick Marvin Jones has apparently jumped Sanu on the depth chart, based on the fact that he’s taken the field for a total of 23 plays in both games.
