Kevin Huber headed to IR with fractured jaw and cracked vertebrae in neck

Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber had multiple injuries on a hit (cheap shot) by Steelers Terence Garvin during Antonio Brown's 67-yard punt return for a touchdown that should have never happened.

Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber is headed to Injured Reserve (which we expected) after suffering a fractured jaw against the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday. During Antonio Brown's 67-yard punt return for a touchdown, Huber was clocked by linebacker Terence Garvin with an unflagged helmet shot that will definitely earn a fine -- in fact, the play shouldn't have even happened considering that 1) Gavin should have been flagged (Huber was struck in the head and neck area) and 2) Brandon Ghee's false start didn't lead to it (but not our place to riddle what-if).

During the hit, Huber suffered a broken jaw and cracked vertebrae in his neck, according to ESPN Insider Chris Mortensen.

The moment of impact.

The Bengals will likely hold work outs on Tuesday during the player's day off and sign someone at that point to replace Huber.

As for Gavin, one can only expect that he'll be fined on Friday when most fines are handed out.
