NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that linebacker Dont’a Hightower has a torn pec and is out for the season, according to a source informed of the situation. He underwent surgery Thursday, Rapoport added.
The Bengals only had 19 yards of offense in the second half, and two drives ended in turnovers. Lazor broke down why Mixon didn’t have a second-half carry and why the Bengals stopped running the ball.
“There were a couple reasons, I think. If you look at how those series went, first of all, we were three-and-out, interception, interception, three-and-out,” he said. “So when you have a 51-play game, no one gets it enough. And there were a couple plays we chose to put someone else in Website For Cheap Jerseys for particular things and it had nothing to do with Joe; it worked out that way.”
It’s tempting to take this performance with a grain of salt because it came against the 0-7 49ers. But San Francisco is more competitive than its record suggests. This was the first game since Week 1 that the 49ers have lost by a margin larger than three points. The run defense went into Week 7 ranked No. 18 in the league for rushing yards allowed per game. After Elliott’s performance, the Niners run defense dropped to 29th in the league.
“I felt ready to go out there and play ball,” Elliott said after the game, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “I’m not going to say I didn’t feel ready earlier in the season. I felt the same.
“You didn’t score as an offense, the defense carries Wholesale Jerseys China you. So you kind of feel salty that you couldn’t help out more than you did,” he said. “You always want to help out more, but you’ve got to enjoy the win.”
And therein is the bottom line.
