Bengals place rookie wide receiver John Ross on injured reserve
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross’s disappointing rookie season is officially over.
The Bengals placed Ross on injured reserve on Wednesday, with the rookie suffering an injury-plagued season in which he had just one touch.
Bengals placed first-round pick John Ross on IR with a shoulder injury. In three games, the ninth overall pick in the 2017 draft failed to catch a pass and lost a fumble.

Ross obviously has time to turn it around, but in terms of rookie seasons alone, he will go down as one of the year’s biggest busts. Even when he did play, he was getting publicly called out for his disappointing route-running, and it was clear he was a big disappointment to the coaching staff in his limited action.
