Cincinnati, OH ( - The Cincinnati Bengals have placed safety Taylor Mays on injured reserve because of a shoulder injury.

Mays was hurt on the final play of the first half in last Sunday's victory over the New York Jets. He had started one of the club's eight games this season and compiled 19 tackles with a fumble recovery.

The 25-year-old Southern California product was in his third season with the Bengals after spending his rookie campaign of 2010 with San Francisco.
