Bengals' Sanu Has Foot Surgery

Cincinnati Bengals rookie wide receiver Mohamed Sanu underwent surgery Monday to repair a stress fracture in his fifth metatarsal in his left foot, sustained in last Thursday's practice.
"It's unfortunate for Mo and for us. But we will pick it up and move forward," said Lewis.The team called up Daniel "Boom" Herron from the practice squad.
Sanu was placed on the injured reserve on Tuesday. He played nine games for the Bengals this season, catching 16 balls for 154 yards and four touchdowns, all of which came in Weeks 10 through 12. He had become a recent focal point of receiver A. J. Green, connecting with him for a 73 yard touchdown pass in September against the Redskins. Sanu has been a breath of fresh air for a team on a three game winning streak.
Sanu was a third round pick out of Rutgers, running the ball 62 times as a freshman for the Wildcats for 346 yards and five touchdowns. He also threw for four touchdowns during his college career. As a receiver, he has totaled 210 receptions for 2,263 yards and 19 touchdowns in three seasons. In his final year Sanu broke the Big East record held by Larry Fitzgerald with 115 receptions for 1,206 yards.
