Cincinnati Bengals may lose key defender for year


Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Robert Geathers has had the pleasure of seeing the brighter days of a franchise that’s suffered through a lot of dark days over the past two decades, and he’s been a solid rotational-DE who’s been known more for his rush-defense, while also getting an occasional pressure and/or sack on opposing quarterbacks.

But in what hoped to be the best season he’s been a part of in Cincinnati, he may not be a part of it going forward. According to Geoff Hobson of, there is some concern regarding Geathers

There is concern that backup left end Robert Geathers may have suffered a serious enough arm injury Monday night that it could affect his status for the rest of the season. Also it’s believed that safety Jeromy Miles cleared waivers and the club may have some interest in re-signing him.


In 2012, Geathers started all 16 games at DE, totaling 45 tackles, with three sacks, and finished fourth on team with 18 QB pressures. If he is out for the year, expect to see SMU rookie and Hard Knocks star Magus Hunt see his playing time take a dramatic jump.
