CINCINNATI -- Bengals outside linebacker Rashad Jeanty sprained his knee and ankle in the first quarter against the New York Jets and is doubtful to return, the team announced.

Jeanty injured himself on the opening kickoff. He was the starting linebacker last week in place of the also injured Rey Maualuga (ankle).

Brandon Johnson has replaced Jeanty against New York.

(Update: Bengals announce Jeanty has a fractured left fibula and is out for the playoffs.)
