The Cincinnati Bengals on Friday placed three more players, including two starters, on injured reserve in advance of Sunday’s regular-season finale at Pittsburgh.
Starting wide receiver Tyler Boyd (knee), starting cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder) and Jordan Evans (ankle), a part-time starter at linebacker, brought the Bengals total to 18 players on IR this season.
Boyd, a third-year player, started the first 14 games of the season before injuring his knee against Oakland. He has 76 catches for 1,028 yards — both team highs — and seven touchdowns.
Kirkpatrick, a seventh-year player, injured his shoulder last week vs. Cleveland. In 13 starts this season, he has 41 tackles and nine passes defensed.
