Sean Porter may have suffered a "significant" shoulder injury

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Bengals fourth-round pick Sean Porter suffered a shoulder injury recently, which might be significant. A lot of unknowns currently.

Those of us scribbling notes in our legal pad trying to develop the 53-man roster, may have found some clarity at linebacker. Or they may not have. It certainly seems rather unclear at this point. However, according to Geoff Hobson with Bengals.com, fourth-round pick Sean Porter may have suffered a "significant injury" to his shoulder, "but it's not clear how significant."

Porter is currently listed as the second-team weakside linebacker, ahead of Jayson DiManche who figures to receive an increase in defensive snaps against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.

Now let's be clear.

Hobson said it may or may not be significant, and the mention is buried deep within an information-packed article about backup players -- which makes us believe that it might not be serious, but worth mentioning at the very least.

Currently we have Rey Maualuga, James Harrison, Vontaze Burfict, and Emmanuel Lamur as roster locks at linebacker, leaving Porter, DiManche, Vincent Rey, and J.K. Schaffer fighting for two spots (or three if they keep seven linebackers).
