Update: Mark Walton is expected to be fine following his injury in the Bengals’ preseason finale. That’s good news because the Bengals were hit with quite a few injuries in the game.


The Bengals are getting hit hard on the injury front in their final preseason game.

After losing Matt Barkley and Cethan Carter in the first half, the Bengals have lost safety Tyrice Beverette, cornerback KeiVarae Russell and running back Mark Walton to injuries.

The team announced Beverette’s injury in the third quarter. It was unclear what the injury was, but the backup safety wasn’t going to make the 53-man roster. He was facing tough odds to just make the practice squad.

It sounds like Russell is just battling cramps and should be fine. He’s fighting for the final cornerback spot on the 53-man roster.

Walton, a rookie fourth-round pick out of Miami, is fighting with Brian Hill for the No. 4 running back spot. This should injury could prove to be the deciding factor if it leads to an extended absence.

We will update these stories if anything else comes out tonight.
