The Cincinnati Bengals have placed defensive end Kerry Wynn on injured reserve.
Wynn, a sixth-year player, appeared in the Bengals’ first two games this season and recorded two tackles. He suffered a concussion in Game 2 vs. San Francisco, and was inactive for Games 3-6.
The veteran lineman was one of the Bengals’ big offseason acquisitions, as he was signed from the New York Giants, partly because the Bengals hired Giants secondary coach Lou Anarumo to be the team’s defensive coordinator. It’s safe to say both moves haven’t quite panned out for the Bengals.
But all that really matters is the health of Wynn, as concussions can be scary to deal with, especially when it’s bad enough to end his season after just six weeks. Hopefully, he’s able to fully recover from this and get back on the football field in the future.
