The injury bug is hitting the Bengals depth chart early this training camp.

For the second practice in a row, the Bengals had a potential depth player leave practice early with a lower body injury.

Second-year Cornerback Tony McRae got tangled up in coverage and limped off the practice field early in the Bengals second training camp practice. McRae did walk around his own power before he was carted off to the locker room.

McRae was defending a deep ball target to wide receiver Josh Malone before he got his feet rolled over once the ball arrived.

It’s a good sign that McRae was able to get off the field on his own; which rookie guard Rod Taylor, who was seen on crutches today, was unable to do yesterday.

Taylor’s injury from Wednesday’s practice is believed to be serious, but the extent of McRae’s injury is unknown at this time.

McRae has been with the team for the previous two seasons. After spending six weeks on the practice squad in 2016, McRae was signed back with the team in 2017, and appeared in five games last season.

We’ll update this story as we receive more details to come.
