Bengals WR John Ross Suffers Foot Injury



Mike Garafolo has updated his report to explain that he misunderstood the circumstance involving how Bengals WR John Ross was injured: 

Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Bengals asked WR John Ross to move to cornerback in practice this week, given that they’re expected to be without four cornerbacks.

Ross agreed to help the team by moving to corner, but unfortunately suffered a foot injury on the second play of practice squad. 

Garafolo expects Ross to “miss some time” with this injury. 

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.
