Taylor called the injury a “several month issue” and Adeniji probably will miss the entire 2021 season. 

He had been looking at competing for a depth role on Cincinnati’s offensive line. Expect the team to place him on injured reserve shortly. 

Adeniji, 23, was drafted by the Bengals in the sixth round out of Kansas in 2020. He’s entering the second year of a four-year, $3.5 million deal and is set to make a base salary of $780,000 in 2021. 

In 2020, Adeniji appeared in 15 games and made five starts for the Bengals.
