While yesterday’s win over the Chargers was certainly cause for celebration, there were some notable injuries suffered that could be significant heading down the stretch of the 2012 season. RB Cedric Peerman was forced from the game with an ankle injury, and was seen walking on crutches leaving the stadium. He may have suffered the dreaded high-ankle sprain, which could cause him to miss multiple games. If that is the case, expect to see the Bengals sign a RB with Brian Leonard the only other healthy back. If the team feels practice squad RB Dan Herron has progressed enough, he too may be called up.
Dre Kirkpatrick can’t seem to escape the injury bug this year, and now he has a concussion he suffered while playing on special teams yesterday. This season continues to be a loss for the 17th-overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, and it’s unclear when he’ll return from his latest ailment.
