Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga out with a concussion

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga was carted off the field with four minutes remaining in the second quarter.

With over ten minutes remaining in the second quarter, Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga shot through a canon on (what appeared to be) a designed run blitz. The resulting three-yard loss by Chris Ivory was negated on an accepted offensive hold by the Jets, despite Maualuga pleading to Marvin Lewis on the sidelines.

Later in the quarter, with 4:16 ticks on the clock, Maualuga was on the tackle that limited Ivory to only a two-yard gain at Cincinnati's 43-yard line.

It was a scary moment.

Maualuga laid on the turf and removed his helmet on his own. After several minutes, the cart retrieved Maualuga to a roaring Paul Brown Stadium crowd. Initially the team announced that Maualuga suffered a left knee injury and his return was questionable. Later in the quarter, the team announced that he was out.

However, instead of a left knee, the team announced that he had suffered a concussion (how do you get that confused?).
