Brandon Thompson will "miss a few weeks" with a sprained knee

USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Bengals second-year backup defensive tackle Brandon Thompson suffered a knee sprain and will miss a few weeks, head coach Marvin Lewis said on Wednesday.

Following Sunday's practice, Bengals defensive tackle Brandon Thompson walked with a noticeable limp, had his knee wrapped and what appeared to be an envelope with MRI results in his hand. Thompson didn't practice on Monday and the players had the day off on Tuesday.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Lewis said that Thompson will "miss a few weeks".

Thompson, according to Lewis, suffered a sprained knee.

Thompson figures to battle for playing time this year. Geno Atkins and Domata Peko are your obvious starters and no one is taking away their respective snaps, leaving Thompson's primary competition against Devon Still. Wallace Gilberry is believed to be the team's interior pass rusher, which makes the number of snaps between Still and Thompson even more limited.
