The Cincinnati Bengals announced Saturday that they’ve placed CB Darius Phillips and WR John Ross on injured reserve and activated DE Sam Hubbard from the list.

The Bengals also promoted WR Stanley Morgan, CB Jalen Davis, OL Quinton Spain and DT Khalil McKenzie to their active roster. 

Earlier in the day, Mike Garafolo reported that Ross suffered a foot injury in practice right after the team discussed the possibility of him playing cornerback. 

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

Ross has been a healthy scratch for a number of weeks this season and had asked for a trade. However, the Bengals opted to keep him for the rest of this season before he presumably heads into free agency. 

Ross, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2017. He is entering the final year of his four-year rookie contract worth $17.11 million which included a signing bonus of $10.58 million.

Ross is in the final year of his rookie contract in 2020 after Cincinnati declined his fifth-year option. 

In 2020, Ross has appeared in three games for the Bengals and caught two receptions for 17 yards.
