Bengals place Dorsey, Ghiaciuc and Williams on IR for final game

CINCINNATI -- Running back DeDe Dorsey, center Eric Ghiaciuc and safety Madieu Williams will miss the Cincinnati Bengals' season finale after they were placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

The Bengals signed free agent running back Quincy Wilson and promoted guard Nate Livings off their practice squad. They have 52 players, one shy of the roster limit, for their final game in Miami.

Cincinnati (6-9) was down to running back Kenny Watson after Dorsey sprained his right ankle during a 19-14 loss to Cleveland on Sunday. Running back Rudi Johnson was inactive with a chronic hamstring injury; Johnson didn't practice Wednesday.

Ghiaciuc sprained his left foot during the game. Alex Stepanovich filled in at center for three games when Ghiaciuc was hurt earlier this season.

Williams aggravated a thigh injury during practice last week. He and starting safety Dexter Jackson were inactive for the win over Cleveland because of injuries.

Livings, a first-year player from Louisiana State, has been on the practice squad all season. Wilson, a second-year player, was waived by the Bengals on Sept. 2.
