Leon Hall wasn't the only Bengals player to rupture his Achilles in 2011. Backup middle linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy, taken out of Texas in the fourth round of the 2010 draft, ruptured his Achilles in the last day of training camp practice and was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Muckelroy's injury was somewhat overshadowed by Hall's, according to Geoff Hobson, Muckelroy may be back on the field before the season begins.

Linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy tore his Achilles in the first 30 minutes of the last training camp and he thinks he'll be back on the field for some work in the May camps nine months after surgery.

Muckelroy played in 14 games his rookie season, primarily on special teams, making 10 tackles. However, he could play a major role in his third season as middle linebacker Rey Maualuga could be facing a suspension after he was charged with misdemeanor assault earlier in the year. Maualuga is also coming off a so-so season in which he was very inconsistent. Muckelroy may have a chance to make a statement on the field in 2011.
