Injury Update: C Trey Hopkins has been declared out with a left knee injury.— Cincinnati Bengals (@Bengals) January 3, 2021
Hopkins came up limping early in the third quarter and walked off the field very gingerly. There’s no reason for them to risk further injuring their best offensive lineman. The Bengals already lost rookie wide receiver Tee Higgins with a hamstring injury earlier in the game.
Playing in the first year of his three-year contract, Hopkins has started in 15 games for the Bengals this year at center. He’s the only offensive lineman to do that for the offense this season. Hopkins missed Week 8’s game against the Tennessee Titans with a concussion. His backup, Billy Price, started for him that week and Price will try to finish this game for Hopkins as the center.
