Bengals Defensive Tackle Larry Black Out For 2013 Season With Dislocated Ankle

Reid Compton-US PRESSWIRE

The Bengals lost their first player for the season in undrafted rookie defensive tackle, Larry Black.

On Wednesday, the Cincinnati Bengals received a taste of what other franchises around the league have been going through in the first few days of camp. They dodged a major bullet on the first day of camp when A.J. Green avoided a major knee injury while landing awkwardly for a pass. Since then, there has been a couple of other bumps and bruises, with the most severe being Brandon Thompson's sprained knee.

The Bengals took another hit at the defensive tackle position when undrafted rookie Larry Black went down during Wednesday's practice and was carted off of the field. After practice, head coach Marvin Lewis told the media that the injury that Black sustained was season-ending.

Black had four sacks as a senior at Indiana University and was looking to make an impact at camp this year. Though it was unlikely that he would supplant anyone on the final roster, he would have been a prime Practice Squad candidate and was important depth through the preseason. This unfortunate story is likely to make an appearance on "Hard Knocks".
