The cincinnati Bengals have taken a 42-21 lead late in the fourth quarter against the Indianapolis Colts, it while it appears as though they’ll win today’s game, they may have lost two key starters for next week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and maybe longer.

Starting cornerback Terence Newman appeared to have injured his shoulder in the third quarter, but eventually left the game for good with what was diagnosed as a left knee injury.

Starting safety George Iloka was also injured on the same play that Newman was, but his injury was a hit to his head that knocked him out of the game for good as well. It may have been a concussion, but it’s too early to tell.
