Last night’s victory clearly came at a cost for the Bengals, as Marvin Lewis’ squad must now deal with a crucial injury to their offensive line.
For the majority of the game, Andy Dalton had plenty of time to exploit Baltimore’s secondary. Unfortunately, Cincinnati’s gunslinger might be without his starting center in the coming weeks.
During their divisional showdown with the Ravens, Billy Price suffered a sprained ankle and was forced to leave the game. Following his injury, the rookie offensive lineman was seen in a walking boot.

Price isn’t the only member of the Bengals nursing an injury, as Michael Johnson is currently dealing with a sprained MCL.
However, the Bengals have enough depth to withstand the loss of Johnson, especially in the form of Sam Hubbard.
Luckily for Cincinnati, they’ll have extra rest before facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. Perhaps that extended break will give Price ample time to return to the gridiron.
