CINCINNATI (AP) - Bengals slot receiver Jordan Shipley has a
torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, ending his
season.
The injury was diagnosed on Monday. He was placed on the injured
reserve list. The Bengals (1-1) didn't immediately replace him on
the roster.
Shipley's knee was hit during the Bengals' 24-22 loss in Denver
on Sunday. He caught three passes for 15 yards.
Shipley was a third-round pick from Texas last season and
quickly blended into the offense, becoming a dependable third-down
target. He led AFC rookie receivers with 600 yards, and tied
teammate Jermaine Gresham for the AFC rookie lead with 52 catches.
Fourth-year veteran Andre Caldwell has been sharing the position
with Shipley and will get more chances on Sunday against San
Francisco (1-1).
