However, the Jags continued to fight back, and with six minutes left in the game during a Jacksonville drive, cornerback Leon Hall was injured after getting hit by George Iloka while attempting to tackle Allen Hurns on a pass reception. He laid on the field for a bit and eventually walked off. The injury was called a "hit to the head" and his return was deemed "questionable."
Earlier in the fourth quarter, Hall was injured while attempting to tackle Denard Robinson, but was hit on his arm by one of his guys as he was reaching out to wrap up Robinson. He hit the ground favoring the arm, but was able to walk off under his own power, and eventually returned to the game.
After Hall's exit, Iloka made an interception in the end zone to halt a Jags scoring-drive with the Bengals leading 33-23. If Hall were to miss time, Dre Kirkpatrick would see a heavy increase in snaps with Terence Newman and Adam Jones starting.
