  • Bengals' Trae Waynes: Designated to return from IR

    Waynes (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday.

    Waynes was sidelined for the first three weeks of the year with a hamstring injury and was able to briefly return to action before aggravating it again during Week 5's loss to the Packers. The 2015 first-round pick has been on injured reserve since, but his return to practice is a solid step in the right direction. He will now have a 21-day window to be added to the active roster, but if he isn't, he will revert back to injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

  • Bengals' Trae Waynes: Ruled out through Week 11

    Waynes (hamstring) isn't expected to return for the Bengals' Week 11 matchup against the Raiders on Nov. 21, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Even though the Bengals have a Week 10 bye, coach Zac Taylor revealed Monday that the cornerback will require at least two more weeks to recover from his hamstring injury that he aggravated during the team's Week 5 loss to the Packers. As a result, it appears as though the 29-year-old will remain out until at least Nov. 28, when the Bengals are slated to take on the Steelers in a Week 12 divisional clash.

    Waynes was sidelined for the first three weeks of the season with a hamstring injury and was able to briefly return to action before aggravating it again during Week 5's loss to the Packers.

    Waynes aggravated his hamstring injury during Sunday's 25-22 loss to Green Bay, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Waynes was active Sunday after being considered questionable with the hamstring issue, and he played 43 defensive snaps before aggravating the injury.

  • Bengals' Trae Waynes: Suiting up vs. Packers

    Waynes (hamstring) is active Week 5 against Green Bay, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    A pair of limited sessions to end the week ultimately won't be enough to keep Waynes off the field. He'll presumably resume his starting role opposite Chidobe Awuzie, and the duo will be tasked with slowing down Davante Adams and the Green Bay passing attack.

  • Bengals' Trae Waynes: Full speed ahead

    Waynes (hamstring) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Waynes has yet to play a down for the Bengals since signing a three-year, $42 million contract in March of 2020. However, the 2015 first-round pick looks ready for his debut as the team's top cornerback when rookie QB Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars come to town Thursday. During his last full season in 2019, Waynes recorded 58 tackles (56 solo), eight pass breakups, two forced fumbles and an interception.

    Waynes has missed the first three games of the season due to a hamstring injury that he dealt with during camp, but he returned to practice last week and is trending in the right direction.
