The Bengals saw a handful of injuries on Sunday in their defeat of the St. Louis Rams. Though the severity of each injury is unknown, some of them may be concerning moving forward.

According to Bengals.com, Tyler Eifert experienced a pinched nerve in his neck after nicking his shoulder while recovering a Giovani Bernard fumble. He was originally determined as probable to return but after the Bengals continued to create a significant lead, he was ruled out. Linebacker Emmanuel Lamur (ankle) and backup cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris (rib) were also deemed out. Jeremy Hill and Vontaze Burfict also left late in the game, each with foot injuries.

Here's the play that knocked Hill out of the game:

Though the Bengals may have been ensuring their players' health with some minor injuries in a blow-out win, the earlier injuries in the game, such as those to Lewis-Harris and Lamur are more concerning. Lewis-Harris is also part of a now-thin group at cornerback, which saw Darqueze Dennard lost for the season last week and Adam Jones admitting he was only 65 percent in today's game.

But, according to Hobson, all of the players injured against the Rams may be good to go next Sunday when the Bengals travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns, led by (probably) Josh McCown.
