The Bengals lose their starting left tackle and a linebacker, as if they needed any more injured linebackers.

UPDATE

The team has announced that Cedric Ogbuehi is questionable to return with a shoulder injury, and Jordan Evans is questionable with a forearm injury.


The Cincinnati Bengals are getting battered and bruised against the Minnesota Vikings.

The latest players to be injured are Jordan Evans and Cedric Ogbuehi. Both were forced from the game late in the first quarter with injuries, which led to them being sent to the locker room for further testing.

Ogbuehi was seen on the sidelined having his shoulder examined by trainers. He had been listed on the injury report with a shoulder injury, so it looks like he may have re-aggravated that injury.

It’s unclear what the issue is with Evans, but he’s merely a backup. Still, with Kevin Minter on injured reserve while Vontaze Burfict and Nick Vigil are inactive, any loss at linebacker is big right now.

Ogbuehi is the team’s starting left tackle, though he’s struggled mightily in that role. With him out of the game, veteran Eric Winston has replaced him at left tackle.
