While the Bengals were able to escape Saturday’s game vs. the Tennessee Titans without major injury, there was some unfortunate news regarding the status of rookie linebacker Sean Porter and starting strong safety George Iloka that came out before and during the game.

Iloka missed Saturday’s game with a wrist injury after being named the starting safety opposite Reggie Nelson, and Taylor Mays got the star in his place, while rookie third-rounder Shawn Williams came off the bench to lead the team in tackles (10), and looked like the future starting SS.

Not only is Iloka losing ground to Mays and Williams for playing time, but he may not play at all the rest of the preseason:

Iloka didn’t play Saturday with what looks like an injured wrist in a cast-like apparatus and indications are he’ll miss the last two preseason games but be ready for the opener. Whether he’ll start is another question.
