Leon Hall Profile
The Cincinnati Bengals shut down cornerback Leon Hall for the remainder of the season, placing him on injured reserve due to a torn Achilles suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It's a major blow to the defense as Hall is one of the best young cornerbacks in the game. The former first-round draft pick from Michigan had started the last 66 games.
Replacing him on the active roster: cornerback Brandon Ghee.
The former third-round draft pick from Wake Forest was promoted from the Bengals' practice squad.
He has played in six games, mostly on special teams.
Rookie linebacker DeQuin Evans was placed on the practice squad/injured list.
Evans, who has been on the practice squad all season, suffered a torn labrum (shoulder) in practice on Nov. 9.
