Bengals RB Cedric Peerman out with fractured forearm

Monday August 29th, 2016

Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Peerman exited his team’s preseason game against the Jaguars on Sunday after sustaining a fracture in his left forearm.

The team has not yet released an estimated recovery time for the injury, but Katherine Terrell of ESPN reports that he is likely done for the season.

Peerman suffered the injury in the first half of the game after landing awkwardly on the arm.

The 29-year-old is one of Cincinnati’s special teams captains and was named to his first Pro Bowl in 2015. He has led the team in special teams tackles the last two seasons. 

Peerman was also listed as the third running back on the Bengals’ depth chart behind Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard.
