Bengals starting middle linebacker was forced from today’s game vs the New York Jets, and it looks doubtful he’ll return after being carted to the locker room, though the team is calling his return questionable:
Maualuga has left knee injury. Return is questionable. Michael Boley in for #Bengals

Boley is in for Maualuga

We certainly hope Maualuga is alright. Here is a GIf of the injury:

If he’s our for any significant amount of time, the team needs to sign a linebacker and do it in a hurry, as Michael Boley is probably not ready to take over the starting MLB role.
That, or move Vontaze Burfict from the weakside to the middle. Don’t be surprised if J.K. Schaffer get’s called up at some point either.
