Injury Update: CB Tony McRae has been declared out with a concussion & cervical strain.— Cincinnati Bengals (@Bengals) December 22, 2019
McRae has been a prominent special teams contributor this year and had been busy today on punt teams as the Bengals have gotten nothing going on offense. He logged 225 special teams entering this game this year and just 197 defensive snaps and hasn’t played with that unit since Week 8.
During the second quarter, McRae was flagged for holding on an Alex Erickson punt return and his injury occurred some time after that. With him out, the depth at cornerback falls primarily onto Greg Mabin and Darius Phillips. On special teams, it’ll be a collective effort to compensate for the loss of McRae.
