Bengals Comeback Falls Short; Fall to 3-7-1 After 19-14 Setback to Ravens

Rex Burkhard

One touchdown and Justin Tucker’s flawless right leg were enough to thrust the Ravens into a first-place tie in the AFC North.

Tucker kicked four field goals and Baltimore shut down the Bengals’ depleted offense Sunday in a 19-14 victory that put the resurgent Ravens back over .500.

Baltimore (6-5) has won three of four following a four-game losing streak.

Joe Flacco threw for 234 yards and a score to help the Ravens end a five-game skid against the Bengals (3-7-1), whose playoff hopes took another serious blow.

The victory was not assured until Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton fumbled when sacked by Elvis Dumervil, and defensive end Lawrence Guy recovered at the Baltimore 21 with 1:05 left and the Ravens up 19-12.

Backup RB Rex Burkhead to Fill Big Role as Backup to Jeremy Hill

Rex Burkhead

Bengals are expressing “enormous confidence” in backup running back Rex Burkhead in the wake of Giovanni Bernard’s season-ending ACL injury according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.

Burkhead, a sixth-round draft pick by the Bengals out of Nebraska in 2013, has been used more as a receiver out of the backfield during his NFL career than as a between-the-tackles runner but, in truth, he has rarely been used at all in his four years in Cincinnati. He has also been injury-prone, although he did stay healthy for all 16 regular season games in 2015.

With Gio out for the year and A.J. Green out for at least a couple weeks, the Bengals will need to replace 42 percent of their targets. Tyler Eifert, Brandon LaFell, and Tyler Boyd should take on most of that work, but Burkhead should see a handful of targets as well as serving as a change-of-pace back for starter Jeremy Hill.

WR A.J. Green Suffers Tear in Hamstring; Will Have MRI

AJ Green

Following a 16-12 loss to the Bills, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported wide receiver A.J. Green sustained a tear in his hamstring, with the simple prognosis being “not good,” Conor Orr of NFL.com reports.

Green was carted off the field following an incomplete pass in the first quarter. Green will undergo an MRI early this week for more clarity on the injury. He did not log a catch before exiting the field.

Coach Marvin Lewis said after the game that he had no additional details on the injury — only its location. A reporter for the team’s official site echoed Rapoport’s report and added that the Bengals fear he will miss the remainder of the season.

“I don’t know when he can come back, but he has a hamstring injury,” Lewis told reporters.

Bengals Wide Out A.J. Green Leaves Game on Cart After Leg Injury

A.J. Green

The Bengals lost a big name player on Sunday, as Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green suffered a hamstring injury on the teams’ first series in their home game against the Bills.

Green will not return to the game.

The wide out appeared get his right foot caught awkwardly as he tried to make a catch. He laid on the turf holding the back of his leg, and eventually had to be removed via cart.

He’s got 964 yards and four TD’s this season on 66 grabs.
