Bengals Place Geno Atkins On IR



Geno Atkins

The Cincinnati Bengals have places star defensive tackle Geno Atkins on the injured reserve list as he prepares for shoulder surgery, according to an official team announcement.

Atkins has played through the right shoulder injury all year long, but he is now in need of surgery, which puts his future in Cincinnati in doubt.

Atkins is under contract with the Bengals through 2022, however his $14.8 million cap hit in 2021 may lead the Bengals to move on from him prior to the contract expiring.

Atkins has failed to notch a sack during the 2020 season, and also did not start a game.
