Bengals placed OLB Sean Porter (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.
Porter, the Bengals' fourth-round pick this season, tore his labrum. The move to put him on injured reserve suggests surgery is needed. Porter was only ticketed for a deep reserve role at SAM linebacker behind James Harrison and special teams duties as a rookie. Tue, Aug 27, 2013 11:05:00 AM

Bengals signed fourth-round OLB Sean Porter to a four-year contract.

Just 6-foot-1, 229 at his Combine weigh-in, the Bengals were pleasantly surprised when Porter reported to rookie minicamp at 237 pounds. He's a possible long-term successor to James Harrison as a pass-rushing SAM linebacker. As a rookie, Porter will focus on special teams.

Bengals selected Texas A&M OLB Sean Porter with the No. 118 overall pick.

Porter (6-foot-1 1/4, 229) played both 3-4 rush linebacker and 4-3 weak-side 'backer as the Aggies underwent scheme change during his career. He's at his best as a nickel rusher with an ability to bend the edge. Porter ran 4.75 at the Combine with a 1.63 ten-yard split and pumped 225 pounds 22 times on the bench. He's likely to play special teams as a rookie, and could be James Harrison's eventual replacement at strong-side linebacker.
