There is one player currently on the Cincinnati Bengals that’s been a part of all four of the Bengals’ most recent playoff berths. Defensive end Robert Geathers has had the pleasure of seeing the brighter days of a franchise that’s suffered through a lot of dark days over the past two decades, and he’s been a solid rotational-DE who’s been known more for his rush-defense, while also getting an occasional pressure and/or sack on opposing quarterbacks.
But in what hoped to be the best season he’s been a part of in Cincinnati, he may not be a part of it going forward. According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, there is some concern regarding Geathers
"There is concern that backup left end Robert Geathers may have suffered a serious enough arm injury Monday night that it could affect his status for the rest of the season. Also it’s believed that safety Jeromy Miles cleared waivers and the club may have some interest in re-signing him."
Geathers, the longest-tenured current Bengal entering 2013, was brought back for his 10th season after re-signing as an unrestricted free agent this past offseason. A two-time team leader in sacks, he is one of just eight Bengals to ever have 10 or more sacks in a season after notching 10.5 in 2006.
In 2012, Geathers started all 16 games at LDE, totaling 45 tackles, with three sacks, and finished fourth on team with 18 QB pressures.
