Cincinnati Bengals wideout John Ross is having an interesting year.
This past April, the Cincinnati Bengals made Washington speedster John Ross the No. 9 pick in the NFL Draft. His first season in the league hasn’t worked out like either party had hoped.
Thursday, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis revealed that Ross, who was supposed to play Sunday, has been placed on the IR. Why? Because Ross came clean that he’s been hiding a left shoulder injury that has plagued him all season. Ross also had surgery on his right shoulder last year.
Asked Marvin Lewis about rookie WR John Ross shoulder on @SiriusXMNFL & he said it's the "other shoulder" and that Ross had been concealing injury hoping to play before finally "coming clean" with team.

Ross, in his rookie season, caught zero passes and ran the ball just once – a play he fumbled on. Perhaps once he’s fully healthy, he can have a solid sophomore campaign.
