CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins was placed on the injured/reserve list Wednesday morning with a right shoulder injury.
Atkins is in his 11th year with the Bengals and was a fourth-round pick for the team in 2010. He has played in 161 games with the Bengals, starting in 134.
This move comes as the Bengals prepare to face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football.
Atkins also has 75.5 sacks with the Bengals, putting him at No. 2 overall for sacks in team history.
On Dec. 10, Atkins was named the Bengals' nominee for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.
