Gibril Wilson Suffers ACL/MCL Injury Against Philadelphia: Safety To Have Surgery This Week

As Craig posted Friday night, Bengals safety Gibril Wilson appears to be done for the year after suffering a confirmed ACL/MCL injury. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, he'll have surgery during the upcoming week.

Wilson's injury opens the door for guys like Tom Nelson and Rico Murray a shot for the fifth safety spot on the roster, which will be mostly utilized on special teams. Nelson recorded four special teams tackles in 2009.

However, one has to wonder, due to the congestion of talented cornerbacks, could the team simply take four safeties in Roy Williams, Chris Crocker, Chinedum Ndukwe and Kyries Hebert and use a cornerback as a hybrid defensive back. Hint: Brandon Ghee.
