Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Domata Peko told reporters following Sunday's 14-13 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, that he suffered a hyperextended elbow and that he should be fine. However, despite this belief, Peko will undergo an MRI to determine the severity on Monday.

Peko hasn't missed a game since battling knee injuries in the final five games of the regular season in 2009. He eventually returned against the Jets in the first round of the playoffs. He has started 76 straight regular season games and 80 if we include postseason games.

Sunday's injury forced Peko to sit during the second half, sporting the same sling on the sidelines that he had on after the game. Brandon Thompson absorbed most of Peko's playing time and nearly contributed with a safety while disrupting a block from the Buccaneers two-yard line, and causing an offensive hold that was declined, near the goalline.
