The Cincinnati Bengals are in Arizona to take on the Cardinals on Sunday night (8:00 pm EST, NBC). However, instead of focusing on their third preseason game, which is generally considered the “dress rehearsal” for the regular season, the Bengals are focused on their owner, Mike Brown.
According to John Breech of CBS Sports, Brown won’t be attending Sunday’s game against the Cardinals because he suffered a “minor medical incident” and has flown back to Cincinnati.
Bengals owner Mike Brown won’t attend the team’s game against Arizona on Sunday after suffering a minor medical incident.
In a statement, the Bengals didn’t specify what the incident was, but the team did say that Brown will be flying back to Cincinnati immediately.
Brown has owned the team since August of 1991 when his father died, leaving the team to him. After plenty of problems and threats to move, the Bengals have built one of the better rosters in all of football.
The Bengals will be in action Thursday night when they host the Indianapolis Colts in the preseason finale (7:00 pm EST). They’ll kick off the regular season on Sunday, September 7 when they travel to Baltimore to take the Ravens, a key division rival.
