C.J. Uzomah suffered MCL sprain, may play in Super Bowl

CJ Uzomah injury

Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah suffered an MCL sprain in the first half of the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Early reports indicate that the sprain is not too severe, leaving it open for him to play in the Super Bowl.

ESPN’s Bengals beat reporter Ben Baby reported the news via Twitter on Monday.

Uzomah was drafted by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. In 2021-2022, he has 49 receptions for 493 yards and five touchdowns. All of those numbers were a career high for Uzomah since entering the league. He has been a security blanket for quarterback Joe Burrow this year, racking up a huge 10.1 yards per reception.

The Bengals won their first playoff game in 31 years in the Wild Card round against the Las Vegas Raiders. After taking care of the number one seed Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round, they overcame a 21-3 deficit to win the AFC Championship Game in overtime by a score of 27-24. They are headed to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1988.
