Cincinnati Bengals SS Taylor Mays (knee) made his debut in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts, seeing time on kick and punt return, as well as kick coverage, as defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer brings him along slowly.

Part of the problem was we got him so late, then he got hurt, then he was doing things the way he used to do them at USC or San Francisco or wherever it was. Now we had to over discipline him."
