Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Trae Waynes suffered what appeared to be a hamstring injury during Wednesday’s practice.

Waynes got his right hamstring wrapped with ice shortly before he walked off the practice fields and into Paul Brown Stadium. He was not carted off.

As Sports Illustrated’s James Rapien mentioned on Twitter, Waynes dealt with a hamstring issue earlier in training camp and missed practice time because of it.

Despite his previous hamstring injury, Waynes managed to play in Cincinnati’s first two preseason games. Along with the rest of the starting defense, Waynes wasn’t going to play this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, so at least this injury didn’t take him out of an extra game.

It’s too early to tell how severe Waynes’ injury is. If the staff allowed him to walk off on his own power, it may not be as bad as a tear. Still, Waynes’ limp isn’t exactly great news.

Waynes, who signed a three-year, $42 million deal with the Bengals last offseason, missed all of last season with a torn pectoral. He was set to make his regular season debut against the Minnesota Vikings, his former team, on September 12th.

Hopefully he can still suit up for the season opener, but this puts that in doubt.
