Brandon Ghee, the team's second third round pick selected 96th overall, is heading to the Injured Reserve list on Wednesday. Largely hoped to be some hybrid multi-purpose cornerback/safety when the team elected not to draft a safety last year, Ghee has gone largely unnoticed throughout much of his rookie season sitting fourth on the team's cornerback depth chart.
Ghee, primarily a special teams contributor, has been on the injury report since the week leading up to the Buffalo Bills game with a groin injury. The rookie out of Wake Forest is the fourth defensive back and the eighth defensive player placed on Injured Reserve since October 26.
The Bengals quickly filled the gap by promoting linebacker Vincent Rey of the team's practice squad. Rey, an undrafted free agent out of Duke, finished the preseason tied for third on the team with 15 tackles.
