Bengals' Trae Waynes: Won't play this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Zac Taylor has ruled Waynes (pectoral) out for the rest of the 2020 season, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

Waynes has spent the entire 2020 campaign on IR, aside from a stint on the COVID-19 list, and he won't return for the final three games of the year. The 28-year-old is still under contract with the Bengals for at least another season, though his deal has a potential out after 2021, so it's in the team's best interest to ensure his recovery goes smoothly.

Bengals' Trae Waynes: Trending in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (pectoral) was seen working out on the side field during Thursday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The good news for the Michigan State product was that he came off the COVID-19 list Wednesday, but this news likely confirms he won't be activated off injured reserve for Sunday's game against Washington. The Bengals' secondary is a bit banged up at the moment, as William Jackson is currently the only healthy cornerback on the roster.

Bengals' Trae Waynes: Cleared from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals activated Waynes (pectoral) off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Waynes had resided on the list since Nov. 6, but it appears he gained full clearance from the league's COVID-19 medical protocols. Now off the list, Waynes will continue to rehab with the team from his torn pectoral muscle he suffered in August.

Bengals' Trae Waynes: Shifts to COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Waynes (pectoral) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Waynes is still rehabbing from a torn pectoral muscle he suffered in August, and he wasn't expected to return soon anyway. He'll need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols before returning to the Bengals' facilities.

Bengals' Trae Waynes: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals placed Waynes (pectoral) on injured reserve Monday.

Waynes underwent surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle in August, and while he'll be eligible to return after three weeks, he's expected to miss a significant portion of the 2020 season. The Bengals' secondary lacked depth already, and it's unclear if Mackensie Alexander (personal) will be available for Week 1's matchup versus the Chargers. William Jackson, LeShaun Sims and Tony Brown are expected to handle most of the workload.

Bengals' Trae Waynes: Likely going on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (pectoral) is likely to go on injured reserve soon, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Waynes will likely go on the IR-to-Return list, but the Bengals don't have to designate that now. This will give the Bengals a spot to exercise their top waiver claim this weekend, giving them their pick of all the players that were cut before the 53-man roster deadline without having to cut a player of their own.

Bengals' Trae Waynes: Recovering from surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (chest) is expected to miss a significant portion of the 2020 season after having surgery on a torn pectoral, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Bengals might consider placing him on injured reserve, which would free up a roster spot while making Waynes ineligible for the first eight weeks of the season. The 2015 first-round pick signed a three-year, $42 million contract in March, after starting 53 games for Minnesota over the past five seasons. The Bengals may need LeShaun Sims or Darius Phillips to step in as a starting outside cornerback across from William Jackson. The original plan called for Jackson and Waynes lining up outside while Mackensie Alexander manned the slot.

Bengals' Trae Waynes: Injures pectoral
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes has a pectoral injury that could keep him out for two months, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The 2015 first-round pick signed a three-year, $42 million contract this offseason, after making 53 starts in five seasons with the Vikings. He's never done better than 65 tackles, 11 pass defenses or three interceptions in a single season, but while he may not offer much IDP value, Waynes was expected to be a key part of the Cincinnati secondary. Any absence could free up a starting job for LeShaun Sims or Darius Phillips, or else the Bengals might try promoting Mackensie Alexander from the nickelback/slot role to an outside spot.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Set to join Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals are signing Waynes to a three-year, $42 million deal, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The No. 11 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft logged 58 tackles and a pick in 14 games with the Vikings last season. With Waynes set to join the Bengals' secondary, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic suggests that Cincinnati may now elect to part ways with Dre Kirkpatrick.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Concludes 2019 with 58 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Turns in full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

Waynes got a limited practice in Wednesday, and coach Mike Zimmer speculated that the 27-year-old would return for Week 11. The upgrade to full a day later suggests he continues to trend in that direction.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Works in limited fashion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that he expects Waynes to be ready for Sunday's game against the Broncos after Waynes missed Week 10's contest with an ankle issue. Assuming that happens, it could push second-year rookie Mike Hughes back into a reserve role, although Mackensie Alexander's (groin) status is also uncertain.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Should return Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Zimmer expects Waynes (ankle) to suit up Week 11 against the Broncos.

The Vikings allowed Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup to run wild without Waynes in the fold, racking up 15 catches for 223 yards and two scores. Mike Hughes showed potential as a placeholder, but it'll help to have Waynes opposite Xavier Rhodes as the team makes its playoff push.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Surprise inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Waynes was looking good for the game midway through the week but, as evidenced by this news, didn't progress enough to suit up. Now that he's officially been ruled out, second-year player Mike Hughes will draw the start opposite Xavier Rhodes at cornerback, with Mackensie Alexander filling in a slot role.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Should play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Cowboys, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Waynes is officially listed as questionable and has been away from the team the last couple days due to a family issue, but he's still expected to be ready to go Sunday. Assuming he suits up, the 27-year-old will start at cornerback opposite Xavier Rhodes, per usual.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Questionable for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Cowboys.

Waynes was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle issue, then missed Thursday's session for reasons unrelated to injury, so his status is something of a question mark. If he's able to suit up Sunday night, Waynes will draw his usual start at cornerback.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Absence unrelated to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Waynes was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle issue sustained Week 9, but Thursday's lack of participation doesn't appear to be related to his health. Coach Mike Zimmer said that he expects Waynes to play Sunday against the Cowboys, according to Chad Graff of The Athletic. It'll bode well for the starting cornerback's availability if he returns to practice in some capacity Friday.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Secures first interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes had four tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 42-30 win over the Lions.

Matthew Stafford compiled 364 yards and four touchdowns against the Vikings on Sunday, but Waynes was able to secure his first interception of the season with about one minute to go, allowing the Vikings to finish the game with a few knee-downs. The 27-year-old has 28 tackles (27 solo) and five passes defensed in seven games.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: No help needed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes had eight solo tackles in Sunday's 34-14 win over the Raiders.

The return of Mike Hughes saw Waynes play just 47 defensive snaps. He played 76 snaps on defense the week prior when Hughes was still inactive. Despite the dip in usage, Waynes turned in a solid performance versus Oakland, finishing Sunday's contest with the second-most tackles on the Vikings, trailing only linebacker Eric Wilson.

Vikings' Trae Waynes: Three tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waynes had three total tackles in Sunday's win over Atlanta.

Waynes started at left cornerback and played 63 of the defense's 74 snaps. He struggled in coverage, however, allowing completions of 5 of 6 passes targeted at his receiver, according to Pro Football Focus.
