Kirkpatrick was already downfield when Andrews was coming full steam ahead right at him. Eventually, Andrews and Kirkpatrick got to the sideline and Andrews rolled right into Kirkpatrick after getting tackled. Kirkpatrick has been declared questionable to return.

The Bengals’ defense was operating mostly out of their 4-3 personnel to start this game, and while playing behind, the Ravens aren’t likely to pass much more if their lead grows. With Kirkpatrick out, B.W. Webb has taken his spot at cornerback, with Tony McRae replacing Webb in the slot.
Kirkpatrick played his best game of the season last week and needed a repeat performance today to help slow down Baltimore’s offense. Hopefully his injury isn’t too serious.
