Report: Bengals CB Waynes to miss much of season
Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Trae Waynes underwent surgery for a torn pectoral and will miss much of the 2020 season, NFL Network reported Monday.
The network’s Ian Rapoport said Waynes could return before the end of the season, but the Bengals have not announced a timeline.
Waynes, 28, signed a three-year, $42 million deal in March after spending five 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.
Last week, it was reported that Waynes would seek a second opinion before deciding on surgery.
“I don’t want to get into too many details right now,” Bengals coach Zac Taylor said during a conference call last week. “It’s unfortunate. He was working hard for us. Again, these things happen. It’s nobody’s fault. We just move on, get him healthy and back on the field.”
