After Cleveland Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson suffered a concussion in the second quarter against the New York Giants last Sunday, he left the game and didn't return. Jackson didn't practice on Wednesday and it's uncertain if he'll be able to play. If not undrafted rookie L.J. Fort figures to start.
"He’s the leader of that defense," Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton said of Jackson today during a conference call. "He’s always making plays. He’s a big part of that defense."
Jackson posted three quarterback sacks, an interception and five tackles earlier this year when the Browns played the Bengals in Cleveland.
Wide receivers Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring), Travis Benjamin (hamstring) and Jordan Norwood (foot) were out, along with defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin (leg), cornerback Dimitri Patterson (ankle) and safety Tashaun Gipson (knee).
