Geno Atkins (shoulder) placed on Reserve/Injured List

Bengals DT Geno Atkins (shoulder) has been placed on the league's Reserve/Injured list due to a right shoulder injury.

Fantasy Impact

Atkins has been with the Bengals since they drafted him in the fourth round in 2010. The eight-time Pro Bowler, who has the third-most sacks (75.5) in team history, will likely miss the remainder of the 2020 season. The Bengals defense will have a hard time containing the Steelers in Week 15 and the absence of Atkins presents an opportunity for RB James Conner to have a bounce-back game on Monday Night Football.
