From the sounds of it, Bengals tight end Alex Smith might be gone for the season.
The veteran tight end suffered a wrist injury in the third quarter during the regular season finale against Baltimore. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis described the injury as a "wrist dislocation".
Alex Smith's injury appears the most serious, Lewis said. Has a wrist dislocation. #Bengals— Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) December 29, 2013
Lewis also said during the postgame radio interview on 700 WLW with Dave Lapham that "it looks like we lost" Smith, all but confirming an eventuality. More will be known this week, so hold off on declaring him done.
On the other hand, Lewis confirmed that the Bengals should have tight ends Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham for the next game. Both were out Sunday against the Ravens.
