When linebacker Emmanuel Lamur was carted off the field with a shoulder injury in the first quarter during Cincinnati's 27-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts, it changed everything.
Along with hating to see a significant role player going down during the final preseason game of the year, you have the uncertain nature of how that impacts the 53-man roster and final cuts.
Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told reporters following the game that his shoulder popped out. Depending on how much damaged was sustained (if any), Lamur could quickly return or he could be out for a significant amount of time.
Clarity will further explain possible rehabilitation, however the team will most likely apply a wait-and-see scenario to see how Lamur responds and how much he can play through the pain. If Martin Riggs is any indication, it should be quickly.
