Bengals put CB Waynes on IR, re-sign McTyer
The Cincinnati Bengals placed cornerback Trae Waynes on injured reserve, as expected, on Monday as he recovers from a torn pectoral muscle.
Waynes, 28, had surgery last month for the injury, which he suffered Aug. 9. He will be eligible to return later this season, though there is no timetable.
The Bengals signed Waynes to a three-year, $42 million deal in March after he spent his first five NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.
Waynes recorded 56 tackles, two forced fumbles and one interception in 14 games last season. He collected 242 tackles and seven interceptions in 74 career games since being selected by the Vikings in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
He is being replaced on the roster by cornerback Torry McTyer, 25, who was waived on Saturday by Cincinnati and re-signed. The Bengals signed him off the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad last September, and he appeared in five games, making two tackles.
In 2018, he played in 15 games for the Miami Dolphins and made 30 tackles and broke up three passes.
