CINCINNATI - The Bengals added a fourth hometown player to the roster Wednesday.

The team announced it had signed DT Adolphus Washington off  the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad and placed DT Ryan Glasgow on the Reserve/Injured list.

Washington, a former star at Taft High School and Ohio State, joins DE Sam Hubbard (Moeller), LB Preston Brown (Northwest) and P Kevin Huber (McNicholas) as hometown Bengals.

Washington (6-4, 303), a third-year player, was a third-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in the 2016 draft. He played in 31 games (21 starts) for the Bills, including Game 1 this season, and totaled 56 tackles and 3.5 sacks. The Bills waived him on Sept. 11, and he signed to the Cowboys’ practice squad on Sept. 18.

Glasgow said he tore his ACL in Sunday's 31-21 loss to the Carolina Panthers. He is out for the season.
