Just after the Bengals got on the board with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Gresham, they suffered a little setback. Linebacker Rey Maualuga went to tackle Ryan Mathews, his left knee buckled as he stood up and he immediately felt discomfort. He hobbled off the field, but you can tell he was hurting for sure. Take a look at the injury, courtesy of GIFD Sports.
This injury was on the same knee Maualuga injured earlier this season, but that time it was a sprained MCL. Hopefully for Maualuga, nothing worse has happened to his knee. Luckily for both Maualuga and the Bengals, the injury doesn’t seem to be too bad, and as a result, the linebacker’s return is listed as probable.
What do you think of the game so far between the 3 seeded Bengals, and the 6 seeded San Diego Chargers? The game is currently in halftime, but the Bengals are ahead 10-7. Do you think the Bengals have what it takes to keep their lead in the final 30 minutes of this playoff game? Or will Phillip Rivers help his team escape the first round o the playoffs with a win?
