Bengals RB Giovani Bernard out several weeks due to MCL injury

Postby linchao » Thu Jan 03, 2019 3:46 am

The Bengals won’t be seeing the backfield duo of Giovani Bernard and Joe Mixon for at least a few more weeks.Just as Mixon is set to return from minor knee surgery Bengals Tyler Boyd Jersey , Bernard will miss the next 2-4 weeks due to an MCL sprain, according to Tom Pelissero.Bernard left in the fourth quarter of the win in Atlanta and couldn’t finish, though he later said that was due to fatigue Youth Tyler Eifert Jersey , so it’s unclear when this injury happened. He’s been the starting running back in each of the past two weeks, and he played a big role in the Bengals’ comeback win over the Falcons. Mixon started in Weeks 1-2 and ran 38 times for 179 yards and a touchdown before injuring his knee against the Ravens. Bernard got just one carry in Week 1, but since Mixon’s Week 2 injury ... een-jersey , Bernard has played well as the starter. He has 34 carries for 155 yards and three scores this season.With Bernard out, rookie running back Mark Walton figures to remain the No. 2 back, though it’s possible we finally see Thomas Rawls this week. Rawls has yet to be active in a game since joining the team in Week 3. The Colts will have quarterback Andrew Luck back in the lineup for the first time since the end of the 2016 season when they face the Bengals this Sunday ... ams-jersey , but they may not have one of his key protectors.Colts head coach Frank Reich said that left tackle Anthony Castonzo will not practice on Wednesday because he’s still dealing with the hamstring injury that’s been bothering him for over a month. Castonzo reported to camp with hamstring trouble and then aggravated the injury during a practice session.As you’d expect with a player in that situation, Reich said Castonzo’s status for Sunday’s game is up in the air. Missing him would require the Colts to turn to Le'Raven Clark or J'Marcus Webb, which would not be a real confidence builder in terms of keeping Luck from taking the kinds of hits he’d like to avoid in his return from a serious right shoulder injury.The Colts are also practicing without running back Marlon Mack and rookie linebacker Darius Leonard Youth William Jackson Jersey , so the injury news isn’t good despite Luck’s positive results in the preseason.
