Head Coach Marvin Lewis revealed after Sunday night’s game that linebacker James Harrison had indeed suffered a concussion that forced him from the game in the first quarter, and there have been no further updates since then.
It will be tough or him to come back in time to play this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, which would be a critical loss and likely mean rookie Jayson DiManche would have to play more.
Tight end Jermaine Gresham had rough night as well Sunday, finishing the game with three catches for 23 yards on five targets, but left early after suffering a hip injury in the second-half and didn’t return.
Rookie TE Tyler Eifert caught three passes on three targets for 33 yards and may be counted on to be the primary TE in Week 16 if Gresham can’t go, but given that he’s practiing today, he should be good to go Sunday.
