Bengals CB Brandon Ghee is 100 percent recovered from last season's wrist injury.

The oft-injured cornerback is likely on his last chance with the Bengals. "I'm just anxious," Ghee said. "I just want to play." Ghee was turning heads last summer before landing on injured reserve in late August. He'll have to stand out again in camp to have any real shot at a roster spot.

Bengals placed CB Brandon Ghee (wrist), LG Travelle Wharton (knee), S Robert Sands, WR Taveon Rogers, and CB Shaun Prater (knee) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

Ghee had a nice OTA season and start to training camp before dislocating his wrist and requiring surgery. The former third-round pick is beginning to run out of chances in Cincy. Sands was sidelined recently with an undisclosed injury.

Bengals CB Brandon Ghee is out indefinitely with a dislocated wrist.

Ghee went down in Saturday's practice and already had surgery, shelving him for "an extended period." It's a hard-luck injury for a corner who appeared to be coming on this camp after laboring through his first two NFL seasons. The Bengals are reeling with secondary injuries. Ghee and Dre Kirkpatrick (knee) are questionable for Week 1, and Shaun Prater (knee) is done for the year.

Bengals promoted CB Brandon Ghee from their practice squad.

The Bengals need reinforcements with Leon Hall out for the season after tearing his Achilles' in Week 10. Ghee, the 94th pick in last year's draft, has a starting-caliber size-speed combo but has never put it all together.

Bengals waived CB Brandon Ghee.

A third-round pick just last year, Ghee appeared in only six games as a rookie, making nine tackles before landing on injured reserve with a groin injury. He had yet to practice this summer as he dealt with a hamstring injury. He could be headed for the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Bengals second-year CB Brandon Ghee has missed all of training camp with a hamstring injury.

Even at a thin position in Cincinnati, Ghee is in danger of losing his roster spot after failing to make an impression during his rookie season. The 96th overall pick in last year's draft, Ghee has a great "Height Weight Speed" combination, but isn't much of a player. He does have practice squad eligiblity.

Bengals placed CB Brandon Ghee on injured reserve with a groin injury, ending his season.

A surprise third-round pick from Wake Forest, Ghee finishes his rookie year with nine tackles in six appearances. He only had one pick in a four-year college career, so it's not surprising that he also went interception-less. The Bengals will hope that Ghee's athletic gifts take over in year two.

Bengals CB Brandon Ghee left Sunday's game with a groin injury.

Ghee appeared to aggravate an old injury on the opening kickoff of the second half. The Bengals are wafer-thin in the secondary after multiple in-game injuries.

Bengals CB Brandon Ghee could draw the start in Week 8 if either Johnathan Joseph (ankle) or Leon Hall (hamstring) can't play.

Chris Crocker would take over as the team's nickel back if Ghee slides into the starting lineup. If Joseph and/or Hall sits, mark up Chad Henne and the Dolphins' receiver corps.

Bengals rookie CB Brandon Ghee was carted away in Saturday's preseason matchup against the Bills with an apparent head injury.

Ghee lay on the ground motionless for 6 minutes before he was assisted to a cart. Ghee showed movement in his arms and legs, and seemed dazed as he left the field. The severity of the injury is unknown.

Bengals signed CB Brandon Ghee to a four-year deal.

Certain specifics in the contract weren't disclosed, but over the next four years, Ghee stands to make base salaries of $320,000, $405,000, $490,000, $575,000, a slotted signing bonus and a fourth-year escalator clause which could significantly increase the overall value. In Cincinnati, he'll push Morgan Trent and David Jones for the nickel cornerback job.

Bengals selected Wake Forest CB Brandon Ghee with the No. 96 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

The last player left in the green room gets an escort from the commissioner. A three-year starter for the Demon Deacons, Ghee possesses outstanding size, speed, and athleticism. The Bengals are known for drafting Combine warriors with questionable production, and they've grabbed another here. Despite Ghee's physical gifts, he had just one pick in college. His lack of ball skills and instincts could hold him back at the next level.
Fri, Apr 23, 2010 10:11:00 PM

Wake Forest CB Brandon Ghee posted a 10-foot-2 broad jump and and a 3.98 short shuttle time at the Demon Deacons' Pro Day.

Anything sub-4.0 in the short shuttle is incredible, no matter the surface it's run on. Ghee stood on his outstanding 4.45 forty time from the Combine. His athleticism-size combo is among the most impressive in this draft.

Wake Forest CB Brandon Ghee recorded an official forty time of 4.45 at the Scouting Combine Tuesday.

Ghee, who impressed at the Senior Bowl, ran the second-fastest forty time among all defensive backs Tuesday. He also fared well on the broad jump (10'7") while holding his own on the bench press (15 reps). Ghee is a borderline second- or third-round prospect.
