Cincinnati Bearcats running back Ethan Wright is reportedly expected to miss the remainder of the season after recently dealing with a back injury.

Scott Satterfield’s team has relied on several running backs this year with Corey Kiner, Myles Montgomery and Ryan Montgomery earning most of the carries.

The Akron native was a 3-star running back recruit at Manchester High School before committing to the Bearcats in 2019 according to 247 Sports.

Wright has played multiple positions throughout his career at Cincinnati including running back for a few years before switching over to safety last season.
