Bengals' "Pacman" Jones out rest of season with neck injury

CINCINNATI, Ohio (Reuters) - Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has had his NFL comeback cut short after the team said on Tuesday he will miss the rest of the season because of a herniated disc in his neck.

Jones was injured in Sunday's 39-32 loss to the Atlanta Falcons and placed on injured reserve, the Bengals said on their website (

The 27-year-old was suspended by the NFL for the entire 2007 season and part of 2008 for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

He played nine games with the Dallas Cowboys in the 2008 season but was without a team in 2009. He signed a two-year contract with the Bengals in May.

He was drafted sixth overall in 2005 by the Tennesee Titans, where he spent two seasons.
