The injury was diagnosed on Monday. He was placed on the injured reserve list. The Bengals (1-1) didn't immediately replace him on the roster.

Shipley's knee was hit during the Bengals' 24-22 loss in Denver on Sunday. He caught three passes for 15 yards.

Shipley was a third-round pick from Texas last season and quickly blended into the offense, becoming a dependable third-down target. He led AFC rookie receivers with 600 yards, and tied teammate Jermaine Gresham for the AFC rookie lead with 52 catches.

Fourth-year veteran Andre Caldwell has been sharing the position with Shipley and will get more chances on Sunday against San Francisco (1-1).
