  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Officially placed on IR

    Wilson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

    As expected, Wilson was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after tearing his ACL during Sunday's loss to the Browns. He operated as Cincinnati's primary kick returner this season, so his absence will likely create an opportunity for Darius Phillips to take over those duties for the remainder of the 2021 campaign.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Out for season

    Wilson tore his ACL during Sunday's loss to the Browns and will miss the rest of the 2021 campaign, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    Wilson suffered the injury during the first half of the Bengals' Week 9 loss to the Browns. He operated as Cincinnati's primary kick return this season, so his absence will likely create an opportunity for Darius Phillips to take over those duties for the remainder of the 2021 campaign.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Knocked out with knee issue

    Wilson will not return to Sunday's game against the Browns after suffering a left knee injury, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Wilson was injured in the first half of the team's game. His primary contributions have come on special teams as the team's kick returner, and Darius Phillips is likely to take over that role in Wilson's absence.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Sticks with Bengals

    Wilson agreed Tuesday with the Bengals on a two-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    A 2017 sixth-round pick, Wilson has mostly made a name for himself on special teams, taking 45 kick returns for 1,251 yards (27.8 average) and two touchdowns. He made two starts at safety in 2019, but he's played far more snaps on special teams (895) than defense (300) through 51 regular-season appearances.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Officially active Monday

    Wilson (groin) is active for Monday's game versus the Steelers, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    As expected, Wilson will return to action for the divisional tilt. The 26-year-old rarely plays on defense, but he's the Bengals' primary kick returner, registering 571 yards and a touchdown on 21 returns (27.2 yards per attempt).

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Expected to play Monday

    Coach Zac Taylor said Saturday that he expects Wilson (groin) to be available against the Steelers on Monday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Wilson sat out against the Cowboys in Week 14 due to a groin injury, but it appears as though he's trending toward a return to the field. If available, Wilson will serve as Cincinnati's top kick returner and provide depth at safety.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Sitting down Week 14

    Wilson (groin) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Wilson was able to power through a hamstring issue to make his 12th appearance of the season last Sunday in Miami, though Alex Erickson brought back the team's lone kick-return attempt. A groin injury kept Wilson as a DNP all throughout the practice week, however, and now he'll be forced to miss his first game of 2020. Down one of the NFL's most explosive returners for Week 14, Cincinnati will lean on the veteran Erickson.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Will suit up in Miami

    Wilson (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Wilson possesses game-breaking abilities on special teams, a fact exemplified once again by his 103-yard kickoff return TD last Sunday against the Giants. The 26-year-old ranks third in the NFL with 571 kickoff return yards, standing behind Cordarrelle Patterson and Andre Roberts in that category entering Week 13. Wilson and Patterson are the only two players with kickoff-return TDs each of the past two seasons.

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Many happy returns

    Wilson has three returns so far this season, all over 40 yards, with an average of 43.7 yards, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

    This isn't out of the blue, either - Wilson had the Bengals' first kick return for a touchdown in 10 years last season against Baltimore. "He runs hard. He's aggressive. He's tough. He's got vision. He's everything you want in a returner," special teams coach Darrin Simmons said. "He's got very good speed, he's got a natural feel running the ball. Plus, our guys are blocking well for him and that's a good combination to have."

  • Bengals' Brandon Wilson: Pens RFA tender

    Wilson (hand) signed his restricted free agent tender with the Bengals on Sunday.

    Wilson's one-year contract sets him up to return for a fourth straight season in Cincinnati. He proved to be a quality return specialist for the team in 2019, logging a league-best 31.3 yards per kick return while also contributing as a reserve safety and in other roles on special teams.
