CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The Bengals placed P Kevin Huber on the Reserve/Injured list. A fifth-year NFL player from the University of Cincinnati, Huber sustained a season-ending jaw fracture in Sundays game at Pittsburgh. The injury will halt at 81 a Huber streak of consecutive Bengals games played, currently the longest on the roster. Huber this week ranks eighth in the NFL in net punting average at 40.5. On Dec. 1 at San Diego, he tied a franchise record for longest punt (75 yards). He is the Bengals all-time leader in gross punting average (44.2), net average (39.1) and ratio of inside-20 kicks to touch backs (3.69-to-1). Last year he set Bengals season records for gross average (46.6) and net (42.0).

The team signed free agent P Shawn Powell, a second-year NFL player from Florida State. Powell (6-4, 243) entered the NFL last season as a college free agent with Buffalo,, playing in the Bills last 13 games and setting a team rookie record with a gross punting average of 44.0. He played in Buffalos first five games this season, averaging 46.1 yards with a 35.2 net, with 10 inside-20 kicks and five touchbacks. He was waived by Buffalo on Oct. 4.
