Schreck (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Schreck's placement on IR effectively ends his 2018 campaign. The second-year vet has endured several knee injuries through the early portion of his career, so it remains to be seen what kind of toll, if any, the latest will have on him moving forward. In a corresponding move, the Bengals promoted tight end Jordan Franks to replace Schreck.
Schreck injured his left knee and will not return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
The severity of Schreck's injury won't be known until he undergoes further testing, but it doesn't look good considering the the second-year pro needed to be carted off the field. This isn't a favorable development for a Bengals tight end group that is already without the services of both Tyler Eifert (ankle) and Tyler Kroft (leg).
Schreck sustained a knee injury in the preseason last year and was subsequently placed on injured reserve, but is apparently healthy to start 2018 training camp. The 24-year-old will need to make quite an impression in training camp to earn the No. 3 tight end role and a spot on the 53-man roster.
