The Injuries Keep Mounting: Morgan Trent Placed On Injured Reserve

Morgan Trent first showed up on the injury report on the Friday leading up to the Colts game with an injured knee. Wednesday, he was fine. Thursday he started practicing and never appeared on the injury report. Then Friday and he missed practice listed as questionable on the injury report. However, on a report by Reedy on Saturday suggests that the knee injury is actually old he suffered against the Dolphins.

Two weeks ago against the Dolphins Trent did not practice for most of the week due to the same injury but ended up starting and got his first interception.

Trent would be a game-day inactive, having the gutty Rico Murray fill his spot -- and doing it surprisingly better than expected. Johnathan Joseph was incredibly impressed with Murray's work.

“He played his (bleep) off,” Joseph said of Murray. “He was Chris Crocker, he was Morgan Trent, he was Adam Jones. He was all those guys. ... I have to see the film, but I’d give him an A-plus for the way he competed out there.”

And Murray might as well get used to the role as the nickel cornerback.

According to Joe Reedy, the Bengals placed Morgan Trent on Injured Reserve along with Mike Nugent. Trent becomes the third defensive back on Injured Reserve, which began with Gibril Wilson (remember him?) and more recently Adam Jones.
