The Cincinnati Bengals couldn’t escape their preseason finale tonight with getting a few bumps and bruises. The first and most significant injury of the game came when tarting nickel linebacker Emmanuel Lamur was carted off the field on the second series of the game with what looked to be a serious shoulder injury. Lamur tried to make a tackle on a third-down play and after contact went to the turf. Trainers worked on his shoulder and as the pain got worse the cart was called out.
It turned out that Marvin Lewis told reporters following the game that his shoulder dislocated and popped out of socket.
With Lewis saying Lamur’s shoulder popped out and back in, that indicates a dislocation. Could be anything from a month to season ender

After fourth-round pick Sean Porter (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve this week along with Brandon Joiner (ACL), the Bengals don’t need to lose another linebacker for a significant amount of time.
