The Bengals just lost the Miami Dolphins in one of the craziest ways possible. The game went into overtime and they ended up losing the game by giving up a safety in overtime to give the Dolphins a win.

The Bengals have been bit by the injury bug this year and it sounds like that little punk has struck again. In the 2nd quarter of the game, Bengals DT Geno Atkins got his leg rolled up onby one of his teammates and a Miami Dolphin. Atkins was helped off of the filed by his teammates and the early indications are that he has torn his ACL. If those indications are true, Atkins will be out for the rest of the year.

Atkins is a huge player for the Bengals defense. He has 18 tackles this season and 5 sacks this season. It is going to hurt to have him out on the sideline for the rest of the season. We will late for official word, but the early indications are that he has tore that ACL.
