New, comments

Brown has been banged up throughout the season thus far.

The Bengals have suffered their first injury of their matchup with the Dolphins.

It came in the second quarter when linebacker Preston Brown went down with what appeared to be an ankle injury. It’s the same ankle that knocked him out for two games earlier this season. He was down briefly before heading to the sideline to be examined by trainers:

Brown has also been battling a shoulder injury that had him limited in practice this past week, though he wasn’t listed on the final injury report with a designation.

When Brown left the game, Hardy Nickerson and immediately missed a tackle. He continues to be a major downgrade from Brown.

Brown was later seen getting that ankle retaped and is now probable to return as he’s walking around the sideline with his helmet, which is a great sign.
