Good luck Cincinnati.
After wide receiver A.J. Green was ruled out yesterday, the Bengals have ruled out tight end Jermaine Gresham as well for today’s Wild Card Round game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Gresham’s back will prevent him from going today after he was unable to get loose during pregame warmups.
Without Gresham on the field the Bengals will be left with Ryan Hewitt and Kevin Brock as their tight ends. Gresham was Pro Football Focus’ top-ranked pass-blocking blocking tight end during the regular season.
The Bengals lost 27-0 in their regular season match-up against the Colts without Green on the field. Their chances of winning today will come down to keeping it close and the ball on the ground. Quarterback Andy Dalton has no receiving options outside of Mohamed Sanu.
