Update: Kroft re-entered the game in the third quarter.
The Bengals lost two players on the field within minutes of each other.
Marquis Flowers left the game after going down on the field with a shoulder injury. Trainers came onto the field to take a look at him, but he was able to walk away under his own power.
Minutes later, Tyler Kroft went down after a big hit, which caused the ball to be intercepted. The Bengals say he has a stinger.
