Cincinnati Bengals rookie cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt is apparently suffering from a core muscle injury, according to Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network. The injury kept him out of tonight’s preseason opener vs. the Arizona Cardinals.
Taylor-Britt, who the Bengals selected in the second-round (60th overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft, had been relatively injury free throughout his college career and developed a reputation for toughness by playing through injury.
A core muscle injury includes potential damage to any skeletal muscle within the area between the chest and mid-thigh. Depending on the exact nature of the injury, recovery time can range from several weeks to over a month. If surgery is required, it could be another 3-12 weeks before Taylor-Britt is back on the field.
Let’s hope the injury is a minor one and the former Cornhusker can return to the sidelines before the start of the regular season on September 11th vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cincinnati Bengals rookie safety Cam Taylor-Britt is dealing with a core injury and won't play tonight against Cardinals, per a league source, an injury that could sideline him for a few weeks. @PFN365— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) August 12, 2022
