Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah tore his Achilles tendon during Thursday’s loss and is out for the season.
Uzomah was carted off the field with the injury after catching a pass with a little more than eight minutes left in the 35-30 loss. Uzomah quickly shed his helmet as the cart made its way to him on the field.
Before the injury, Uzomah was one of quarterback Joe Burrow‘s most effective receivers. The tight end had four catches on six targets for 42 yards and one touchdown — Burrow’s first passing touchdown in the NFL.
