The Cincinnati Bengals announced Friday that they’ve officially placed TE C.J. Uzomah on injured reserve with an Achilles injury and promoted TE Mason Schreck to their active roster.

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise after the team confirmed that Uzomah suffered a season-ending injury during Thursday’s game against the Browns. 

Uzomah, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in the 2015 draft out of Auburn. He played out the final year of his a four-year rookie contract before agreeing to a three-year, $18 million deal with the Bengals in 2019. 

Uzomah stands to make base salaries of $3,050,000 and $4,750,000 over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2020, Uzomah appeared in two games and caught eight passes for 87 yards receiving and one touchdown.
