Injury news for Bengals and Browns
By Jamison Hensley
The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals have already watched a combined four starters go down with injuries in the first quarter of their preseason openers.
The Bengals will be without three starters for the rest of the game against the Jets. Left guard Travelle Wharton, a free-agent pickup from Carolina, was carted off the field and has been replaced by Otis Hudson. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap and middle linebacker Rey Maualuga both have right knee injuries and are doubtful to return.
The Browns watched wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi leave the game after his first catch, which came on the first play at Detroit. Massaquoi, who thought he had moved past his concussion issues, has another head injury.
