During the first half of Cincinnati's 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Bengals cornerback Leon Hall left the game with an apparent Achilles injury. He didn't return for the rest of the afternoon after leaving the game in the second quarter. Following the game, reports surfaced that Leon Hall was on crutches in the locker room, leading one to believe that the injury could be serious enough for concern.

And there might be reason for it.

According to multiple reports out of the locker room following the game, Hall's teammates ">Hall's teammates "fear" that the cornerback is done for the season; that will probably be known later tonight or tomorrow by Marvin Lewis' afternoon press conference. Hall is currently the team's interception leader with two, including one on Sunday against the Steelers.

Cincinnati is already short on cornerbacks with Hall's injury and the questionable timetable for Adam Jones' return, who suffered a hamstring injury against the Seattle Seahawks. Kelly Jennings would be your starting cornerback opposite of Nate Clements.

If Hall is done for the season, it will open a spot on the 53-man roster. One candidate to replace Hall could be Brandon Ghee, who has sat on the team's practice squad all season.
