Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman La'el Collins appeared to suffer a significant injury during Saturday's Week 16 game against the New England Patriots.

Collins went down late in the first quarter. Players from both teams seemed very concerned as he writhed in pain on the turf.

The veteran tackle was able to walk off the field with the help of training staff. He was taken for evaluation in the medical tent before getting carted back into the locker room.

Collins has been officially ruled out for the remainder of today's contest.

The Bengals signed Collins on a three-year contract prior to the 2022 season. The former Dallas Cowboys tackle has started all 15 games for Cincinnati so far this season.
