Injury news continues for the Bengals as defensive tackle Josh Tupou was carted off to the locker room shortly after the same happened for wide receiver Auden Tate.
Per the Cincinnati Enqurier, Tupou’s injury appears to be to his right ankle.

Tupou spent most of last year on the Bengals’ practice squad after joining the team as an undrafted free agent. He is competing to earn back his spot this year, or even make the roster. The defensive tackle is competing with Chris Baker, Andrew Billings, Ryan Glasgow and rookies Brown (mentioned above) and Chris Okoye for a spot alongside Geno Atkins on the roster.
Tupou was active for one game in 2017 during which he played 19 snaps but recorded no statistics.
