Haloti Ngata returns after hurting left knee


BALTIMORE -- Baltimore Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata returned in the second quarter after injuring his left knee earlier in the game. He was taken to the locker room for evaluation.

Ngata had a strong game before hurting his knee, making three tackles as the defense shut out the Cincinnati Bengals in the first quarter. But he went down on an 18-yard gain by Bengals running back Giovani Bernard.

The Ravens lead the AFC North-leading Bengals, 17-0, midway through the second quarter.
