The Cincinnati Bengals took a beating last night at he hands of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it was punter Kevin Huber who got the worst of it.
It started when he lined-up to punt after the Bengals failed on their first offensive possession, but dropped the snap back at his own 1-yard line. Two plays later after Le’Veon Bell ran it in for the score, and two drives later, Huber found himself punting again, and this he got it off.
He probably should have just dropped it again, as Steelers receiver Antonio Brown took it to the house for the score to put the Bengals in a 21-0 hole. After the play, Huber was bleeding from the mouth after taking a huge hit from Steelers special teamer Terence Garvin during the return.
Huber’ was later diagnosed with having a fractured jaw that will not only keep him out for the remainder of the night, bit could miss the rest of the regular season at least. Kicker mike Nugent is now filling-in for Huber, but expect to see a punter signed this week.
