CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals placed right tackle Jake Fisher on an injury list Wednesday, ending his season and leaving their struggling offensive line in flux.

Eric Winston was signed, but it's unclear how much he can play right away after sitting out half the season.

Fisher became ill and was taken to a hospital in Jacksonville during a 23-7 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. He saw a doctor on Tuesday who recommended a procedure that will sideline him the rest of the season. Fisher asked to keep the nature of the problem private.

Winston was released at the end of training camp and didn't sign with another team. He played for the Bengals from 2014-16.

The Bengals (3-5) play at Tennessee (5-3) on Sunday.
