The Bengals are getting torched on defense today, and their defensive line just got a bit more thin.
Defensive end Kerry Wynn has been ruled out with a concussion, first reported by Local 12’s Richard Skinner.

Earlier this week, the Bengals waived defensive end and former 2017 third-round pick Jordan Willis, making Wynn one of four remaining defensive ends on the roster. With Wynn out, they have just Carl Lawson left behind starters Carlos Dunlap and Sam Hubbard.
The Bengals are already dealing with a Cordy Glenn concussion, which has kept him out for the past month. Hopefully, Wynn’s concussion isn’t as serious, but you can never be too careful with these.
In many cases, players who suffer a concussion during a game end up missing at least the following week. Depending on how long he’ll be out, this means Andrew Brown should be getting a bigger workload. He’s inactive today though, so it’s up to Lawson, Hubbard and Dunlap to finish off this game.
