The Cincinnati Bengals placed wide receiver John Ross (collarbone) on Injured Reserve on Wednesday and signed wide receiver Stanley Morgan from their practice squad in a corresponding move.

Ross hurt his shoulder during the Bengals' 27-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday.

John Ross's breakout season has come to a screeching halt due to a shoulder injury. Ian Rapoport reports that no surgery is scheduled, and Ross is a candidate to return later in the season. He followed up that game with four catches for 112 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers.

The injury to Ross certainly deals a devastating blow to the Bengals' receiving corps. Green is not expected to return for a few more games.

The 24-year-old Ross, who was enjoying a breakout National Football League season with three touchdowns in four games, suffered a right shoulder injury and could be out four weeks or more. As a result, there had been pressure on him to perform coming into the 2019 National Football League season. Unfortunately, Ross has suffered yet another setback that could result in a shortened season once again.
