As for rookie running back Giovani Bernard, he suffered an injury just before the end of the half, and after sitting on the field for about three minutes, he got up and went to the sideline, and it looked like it was just a case of the wind being knocked out of him.
It turned out he re-injured his ribs which were finally healing-up after the initial injury in Week 9 vs the Miami Dolphins.
Official word on Bernard is he reaggravates rib injury, but he is expected to return. #CLEvsCIN
