Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis appears unconcerned about injuries against the Browns

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals had several players go down against the Browns, but Marvin Lewis hinted that they don't appear to be serious.

Much like their 49-9 win over the New York Jets last month, the Bengals secured a confidence-building win by scoring over 40 points against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Unfortunately, the Bengals suffered several injuries during the game, just as they had against the New York Jets.

At various points in the game, offensive guard Clint Boling (knee), center Kyle Cook (thigh), linebacker Vontaze Burfict (hand?), cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (shin), running back Giovani Bernard (ribs), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (unknown but left for the locker room in the second), tight end Alex Smith (hip), and safety George Iloka were forced out of the with injuries.

Most were minor enough (like most games with bangs, bruises and owies) that mostly everyone returned. However, Boling appeared to have the most serious, suffering a knee injury and not returning to a game that Cincinnati had full control over.

During post-game comments on 700 WLW, head coach Marvin Lewis was unconcerned about anyone's health, saying that everyone was "negative", meaning that any x-rays that were taken during or after the game, didn't show any damage. More will be known later this week with a Marvin Lewis presser on Monday and some locker room interviews on Tuesday before the team takes off this week.

Cincinnati's bye week is extremely, giving the Bengals plenty of rest to recuperate and that's just not from those that were hurt against the Browns.

Marvin Lewis told reporters on Friday that everyone dealing with long-term injuries appear ready to for their respective returns after the bye week. That includes linebacker Rey Maualuga (MCL sprain), defensive tackle Devon Still (elbow), safety Chris Crocker (hamstring), and linebacker Michael Boley (hamstring), all of whom missed Cincinnati's 41-20 drubbing of the Browns.
