Rey Maualuga doesn't require surgery on fractured ankle

The Bengals lost Rey Maualuga for the season after fracturing his ankle against the Kansas City Chiefs. The second-round rookie racked up 80 tackles (per Bengals.com), a sack, three forced fumbles and two passes defensed. Not bad, rook.

James Walker writes that the injury won't require surgery and that "his recovery time is approximately six weeks."

Maualuga is one of several defensive starters that Cincinnati has lost this season -- one from each level on the unit; Antwan Odom on the defensive line, Maualuga at linebacker and Roy Williams at safety.
