Bengals' Hunt, Saints' Strief, leave with injuries

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Cincinnati Bengals reserve defensive end Margus Hunt has been taken on a cart from the sideline to have his right ankle examined during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints.

Hunt walked gingerly off the field after the final play of the first quarter, a short pass from Drew Brees to fullback Erik Lorig. The Bengals have listed his return as questionable.

Hunts' injury came one play after Saints starting right tackle Zach Strief came off the field appearing dazed and walked with trainers to the locker room.

The Saints have announced that Strief, a Cincinnati native, is out for the remainder of the game with symptoms of a concussion.
