Report: Antwan Odom tears right achilles.

If it wasn't enough that Cincinnati lost in their most uninspiring game of the season, they likely lost their most productive pass rusher for the entire season. Antwan Odom, a player that had one of the best plays of the day with a blocked field goal, left the game on a cart after Matt Schaub completed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Texans' tight end Owen Daniels with a minute left in the first quarter.

Geoff Hobson writes that Odom tore his right achilles.

Lewis said a couple of hours after the Bengals' 28-17 loss to the Texans that Odom's right Achilles is torn. That usually means out for the year, a shame for a guy who had already rung up eight sacks to tie his career best.

The immediate problem now is that the Bengals are suddenly lacking depth and health on the defensive line. Domata Peko is awaiting MRI results after leaving the game on the "Texans’ third snap of the game". Combined that with Frostee Rucker dealing with an ankle injury that kept him out from Sunday's game. Tank Johnson had just returned after missing the past two games, leaving Jonathan Fanene, Pat Sims, Michael Johnson and Robert Geathers are your healthiest players on the defensive line.
