Safety George Iloka suffered an ankle injury near the end of the first quarter. During the play, with the first quarter clock expiring, rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper made Cincinnati's defense look silly before he was dropped by Iloka and Chris Carter. When the play was completed, Iloka crawled momentarily on the field before he exited the game.

By the next series, he had returned.

Unfortunately, the Bengals announced Iloka, who had two tackles, would miss the second half with an ankle injury.
