The coach said that the ninth overall pick of the 2017 draft didn't divulge the severity of the injury because he wanted to play.

Bengals receiver John Ross's season came to an end on Wednesday when it was revealed he needs surgery on his left shoulder.

Appearing with Ross Tucker on SiriusXM NFL Radio (via ESPN), Lewis said Ross was put on injured reserve, ending his season.

Now, Lewis is adding a bit of extra fuel to the fire in reportedly declaring that Ross was hiding the injury before "coming clean" to the team this week. That is probably good news, but it is yet another injury for a player who struggled with them throughout college. If he was injured significantly, that would help to explain why Ross seemingly was not performing well enough to get on the field but, in the same breath, it seems weird that the Bengals would not understand or know this prior to the dog and pony show of declaring him healthy while deactivating him weekly.
