Billy Price will finish the game at center with Hopkins sidelined for the rest of the day.
The Bengals’ offensive line is now down two starters.
Just minutes after Jonah Williams was declared doubtful to return with a neck injury, Trey Hopkins left the game and went inside the locker room after being looked at on the sidelines. He’s being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return.

It’s unclear how Hopkins got hurt, but nonetheless, it’s very likely he could be out of the game. Billy Price is in at center for Hopkins. Price was drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Ohio State to be the Bengals’ center going forward, but he’s been unable to be effective enough to keep a starting spot. Now it looks like he’ll get another chance to show what he’s made of.
As of now, the Bengals’ offensive line looks like this:
- LT: Fred Johnson
- LG: Michael Jordan
- C: Billy Price
- RG: Alex Redmond
- RT: Bobby Hart
