Bengals RB Brian Leonard Will Have "Tests" On Injured Ribs Monday

New, comment

At some point during the second quarter while on special teams, Cincinnati Bengals running back Brian Leonard left the game with a rib injury. He didn't return.

Leonard is expected to have tests on Monday, including X-Rays, to determine the severity of the injury, according to Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer.

If Leonard is unable to go this Sunday against the Steelers, it leaves BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Cedric Peerman as the only available running backs on the roster; Bernard Scott was placed on IR last week. It's entirely possible that we could be seeing a host of free agent running backs this Tuesday; when teams normally invite players for positions they need to update.
