The Bengals are on their way to securing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, but they’ve suffered a few bruises in the process.

In the middle of the third quarter, Tony McRae left the game and has since been declared out with a concussion and a cervical strain.

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.
