Bengals Rule Out Cornerback For Sunday's Game

The Cincinnati Bengals will be down a key defensive player this week.

Head coach Zac Taylor has ruled cornerback Mike Hilton out for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Hilton sustained a knee injury in last week's game against the Cleveland Browns, forcing him to miss all of the Bengals' practices leading up to Sunday's game.

In 12 games this season, the twenty-eight-year-old has 52 total tackles and four passes defended.

In Hilton's absence, Eli Apple, Cam Taylor-Britt and Tre Flowers will also see increased workloads against Tom Brady and the Bucs' dangerous receiving corps.
