There's always a fear of injuries during "meaningless" games, either during the preseason, Pro Bowl and especially Week 17 games in which a team can't improve or lose position in the standings.

Unfortunately the Cincinnati Bengals suffered such an injury before the game even started when running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis pulled a hamstring during pregame warmups prior to the Week 17 regular season finale against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Bengals figure to use Cedric Peerman and Brian Leonard to replace their starting running back. At this point you just have to hope the injury is minor and he'll be ready for the playoffs next weekend.
