Geno Atkins Thanks Fans and Vows Quick Recovery

John Grieshop

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins suffered a second-ending ACL injury in the second quarter against the Miami Dolphins.

The loss of Geno Atkins was the round-house kick to the collective stomachs Thursday night. His immobilization on the turf with under five minutes remaining in the second quarter in Miami was as if he had known something happened, but completely unfamiliar with how to react. How should he move, should he move, what's going on. We mimicked Geno's reaction with a feeling of helplessness and dread.

Eventually it was learned that Atkins tore his ACL and will be out for the rest of the season. Atkins thanks everyone for the support and vows to quickly return.
