Bengals DT Brandon Thompson has knee wrapped, possible MRI

USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Thompson has a possible MRI on his knee, according to the DDN.

Save for A.J. Green's bruised knee, the Cincinnati Bengals have avoided the nasty trend of season-ending injuries that's flaring up around the league.

The most serious (beside Green) at this point could be on the defensive line.

According to Jay Morrison with the Dayton Daily News, Bengals defensive tackle Brandon Thompson may have suffered a serious enough injury to require an MRI.

Morrison adds that Thompson's "left knee was wrapped".

Thompson is challenging for a role on the defensive line, alongside second-year defensive tackle Devon Still; both of whom were selected in the 2012 NFL draft. Domata Peko and Geno Atkins will start, and Wallace Gilberry has been rotating in as a defensive tackle during passing drills. So playing time could be limited.
