Bengals rookie RB Chase Brown sent to injured reserve

Cincinnati Bengals rookie running back Chase Brown went from potentially getting a bigger role out of the bye week to going to injured reserve.

Saturday, the Bengals announced Brown’s shift to injured reserve due to a hamstring injury he suffered in practice on Thursday that required a cart to leave the field.

That means Brown will miss at least four games before he’s eligible to return. This, on the heels of Bengals coaches saying he was likely in line for a bigger workload as the team attempts to find an answer behind starter Joe Mixon.

With the fifth-rounder sidelined and a roster spot open, we’ve outlined nine running backs the Bengals want to target before the NFL trade deadline.
