The Cincinnati Bengals' secondary took another hit on Wednesday when safety Taylor Mays was placed on season-ending injured reserve because of a dislocated shoulder.
Mays suffered the injury during the final play of the first half on Sunday in the Bengals' 49-9 victory over the New York Jets.
In eight games this season, Mays contributed 21 tackles, two passes defensed, a special teams fumble recovery and two special teams tackles.
Cornerback Leon Hall also is out for the remainder of the season. He suffered an Achilles tear the previous week, leaving the Bengals think in the defensive backfield.
Also missing from Bengals practices this week were defensive tackle Devon Still and linebacker Ray Maualuga, who is unlikely to play in Thursday night's game against the Miami Dolphins because of a knee injury and concussion. ESPN reported that Maualuga would be out three to four weeks with a sprained knee.
