Per Joe Reedy, here’s what Bengals safety Reggie Nelson had to say after the game regarding the loss of cornerback Leon Hall:

"“It’s emotional. Knowing what type of player he is and what type of character he has. He worked his ass off to get back out there with us. Seeing him go down like that it hurts. There’s nothing you can say about it knowing that he wanted to be out there real bad with us.”“Zim (defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer) and them have to find a young man who can step up. You can’t replace him but someone has to go battle with us.” We’ve got a great group of athletes and now it is about the guy that Zim trusts the most.”"

It looks like he’ll be out for the duration of the majority, if not the entire rest of the season, but we’ll keep you posted when there is an update. An MRI will likely come early tomorrow, with news regarding the extent of his injury coming around the afternoon.
