Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga out for up to a month

 

 

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga was forced from Sunday’s  game vs the New York Jets, and he was unable to return after being carted off the field and into the locker room. The team initially called his return questionable with a left knee injury, but eventually revealed that he’d suffered a concussion and was ruled out for the game.

While he says he’s alright now, the NFL concussion protocol will have him undergoing concussion testing until he’s cleared to return to action, ans that means he probably won’t be available for Thursday night’s quick turnaround in Miami.

But apparently the knee injury is what’s more serious, as he reportedly has a sprained MCL that will knock him out for up to a month:

 


The team may move Vontaze Burfict from the weakside to the middle vs the Miami Dolphins. Don’t be surprised if J.K. Schaffer get’s called up at some point either.
