Bengals Top Cornerback Appears To Have Suffered Season Ending Injury

He was seen wearing a leg cast after injuring his right knee in Monday's 35-13 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Now, the Cincinnati Bengals fear their starting cornerback Chidobe Awuzie has suffered a season-ending injury. 

Awuzie is set for additional testing Tuesday, including an MRI on his right knee, to determine the severity of his injury. Initial reports are saying that Awuzie may have torn his ACL, an injury for which the cornerback would need to undergo season-ending surgery and face a tough rehab for the 2023 season. 
The twenty-seven year old has been the team's best cornerback since signing with the Bengals ahead of the 2021 season, recording 33 tackles, five passes defended and a forced fumble over the first seven games this season. 

The loss of Awuzie would be a huge blow to the Bengals' secondary, with the team's other cornerbacks, Eli Apple and Tre Flowers, also dealing with injuries.
