Jermaine Gresham's Injury Isn't Serious

Jermaine Gresham and Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis are saying the tight end is fine and what appears to have been a knee injury suffered against the Falcons in Thursday night's preseason game wasn't all that serious.

It's unclear what the team is going to do with Gresham moving forward, but precautionary measures could be taken. Maybe he sits out a few practices or reps, but Gresham believes he can play next week.

The third-year tight end caught a nice 25-yard pass from second-year quarterback Andy Dalton as he suffered the injury while being tackled at the legs. Gresham was able to walk off the field on his own power.

In addition to wide receiver A.J. Green, who Dalton connected for a 50-yard touchdown pass with on Thursday, Gresham is sure to be one Dalton's favorite targets and one of the team's most dangerous offensive threats in 2012

Jermaine Gresham Injury: Bengals TE Leaves With Knee Problems

Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham left Thursday night's preseason game with the Falcons with what appears to be a hyperextended right knee.

After catching an impressive 25-yard pass from quarterback Andy Dalton that involved a spin move, Gresham appeared to limp to the sidelines after being taken down by the leg. The third-year tight end has not returned to the game since that play, and is not expected to return to action tonight.

The third-year Bengal tight end is coming off an impressive 2011 season, during which he hauled in 56 receptions for 596 yards and six touchdowns.

Gresham's injury comes on top of tonight's injury to Bengal linebacker Vontaze Burfict -- who suffered an apparent head injury on a hit applied from teammate safety Taylor Mays on a tackle. The Bengals are also recovering from lingering injuries sustained during last week's preseason victory over the Jets, during which four players left the game with injury.
