Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Trae Waynes was slated to make his team debut on Sunday after he missed the entire 2020 campaign with a pectoral injury. However, Waynes went down in practice due to a hamstring injury recently, which put his Week 1 status in jeopardy.

The latest on Waynes is terrible news for Cincinnati.

Trae Waynes Injury Update

The veteran corner has been officially ruled out of the Bengals' Week 1 clash against the Minnesota Vikings. It's a disappointing update, and it may be a sign of things to come. Waynes battled hamstring issues throughout camp, which raises fears about this being a season-long problem.

Waynes was nothing but impactful over his last four seasons with the Vikings. He racked up 38 pass breakups, 7 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles from 2016-2019 before signing with Cincinnati.

The Bengals are 3-point home underdogs heading into Week 1, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
