Bengals Defensive Starter Feared to Suffer Season Ending Injury Against Browns

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Chidobe Awuzie has suffered what believes to be a season-ending injury against the Cleveland Browns.

The Cincinnati Bengals are taking another major loss following the one they took in Cleveland on Monday evening. Cornerback Chidobe Awuzie is believed to have suffered a torn ACL in week 8, according to a report. 

Awuzie was hurt on a play defending Browns wideout Amari Cooper. Cooper caught five passes for 131 yards and a score against the Bengals.

Though Awuzie was able to trot off the field, he never returned. This will be a big loss for Cincinnati as they will be without their top cornerback for the remainder of the season.
