Not even an hour after the Bengals announced three coaches were out vs. Washington due to COVID-19, the team has announced a player is heading to the COVID-19 list as well.

Friday, the team placed practice squad wide receiver Stanley Morgan on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list. He’s actually the fourth practice squad player to land on the list, joining defensive end Freedom Akinmoladun, safety Trayvon Henderson and cornerback Winston Rose.

Morgan, now in his second professional season, signed with the Bengals in 2019 as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska. He’s bounced between the practice squad and active roster since then. He’s caught three career passes for 18 yards while playing primarily on special teams.

At Nebraska, Morgan graduated with school records in career receptions (189), receiving yards (2747), single-season receiving yards (1004 in ‘18), 100-yard receiving games (five in ‘17), and consecutive games with a reception (38). He’s also tied for second in career receiving TDs (22). His 1,004 receiving yards in 2018 made him the first-ever Nebraska player to top 1000 receiving yards.

Depending on what happens this coming offseason with John Ross and A.J. Green, Morgan could have a great chance at making the active roster full time next year.
