Cincinnati, OH The Cincinnati Bengals signed safety Marvin White Sunday with the belief that veteran newcomer Gibril Wilson may be lost for the season with a knee injury.

Wilson's agent, Alvin Keels, had previously posted an ominous message on his Twitter page, indicating his client had suffered damage to the ACL and MCL. No official word has come from the team, but it seems Wilson may be heading toward the injured reserve list.

Wilson signed up with Cincy in May for a seventh pro season having spent last year with Miami. He started 14 of 16 in 2009 and finished the season with one sack, eight passes defensed and 91 tackles.

White, a fourth-year pro, previously played two seasons for the Bengals before moving on to Dallas and then Detroit in 2009. The 26-year-old has 141 career tackles, 14 passes defensed and one interception in 40 games (19 starts).

In addition, Cincinnati signed rookie offensive lineman Chris Rodgers to replace first-year tackle Andrew Mitchell, who was waived/injured with a knee injury.
