TE Jermaine Gresham left last night's game with a knee injury, but it doesn't appear too serious. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham left Thursday's game with an apparent knee injury, but was seen walking the sidelines and never went to the locker room. After the game, coach Marvin Lewis confirmed that he was doing just fine, and Gresham said that he should be ready to play next week.

Analysis: It was a brief scare in the game for fantasy owners - Gresham got up limping after an impressive 25-yard catch-and-run - but so far, all reports indicate it was a precautionary exit and there's no real worry here. Gresham was a solid TE2 in 2011 and made his first Pro Bowl, but he has potential for a breakout season if he improves on his 10.6 yards per catch from last season. With the Bengals' #2 WR position still unsettled, look for Gresham to become Andy Dalton's second-favorite target after A.J. Green.
