It’s official: L.J. signs with Bengals

Running back Larry Johnson signed a contract for the rest of the season with the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday morning, as was expected after agreeing to terms Monday night.

The former Chiefs standout, who was recently released after making disparaging remarks about head coach Todd Haley and using a gay slur, is expected to practice with the team this week and assume a backup role in Cincinnati’s backfield.

Johnson, who worked out for the Bengals on Monday, was signed two days after starting tailback Cedric Benson suffered a hip injury, which is not believed to be serious, a team source said.
