Injury Update: WR Auden Tate is doubtful to return with a knee injury.— Cincinnati Bengals (@Bengals) December 8, 2019
Tate walked off of the field under his own power but was noticeably limping upon reaching the sideline. The second-year receiver was taken into the blue tent behind the bench and then walked into the locker room.
Just four weeks ago, Tate suffered a scary neck injury against the Raiders. This seems much less serious, but it could take him out of this game altogether. Tate had 66 receiving yards last week; his seventh game this year with at least 50 yards through the air.
With Tate out for now, this likely means more Tyler Eifert and John Ross III for the offense.
