Were we fooled again?
That's the question that will follow Brandon Ghee following Cincinnati's impressive showing against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday night. With a good training camp, confidence-boosting OTA session with the first-team defense (while others were hurt), Ghee added a solidifying argument with a second quarter interception with over two minutes remaining in the first half. That interception led to a Giovani Bernard touchdown and a Bengals 17-3 half time lead.
Unfortunately, the same durability concerns that have followed Ghee's career returned Thursday night when the fourth-year cornerback suffered a head injury during a tackle that forced him out of the game.
Ghee with head injury. Will not return— Joe Reedy (@joereedy) August 9, 2013
Ghee has head injury and won't return— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) August 9, 2013
We can only hope that the injury doesn't sideline Ghee for too long. He's a story that's closing on a redemption theme, but eventually these durability concerns will end his career in Cincinnati. But more will be known later.
