Update: Uzomah is believed to have suffered an MCL sprain, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. He’ll be out for the current game and he’ll have an MRI to see the extent of the damage.

Update: It doesn’t look great for Uzomah, he is doubtful to return and couldn’t put any weight on his ankle. Uzomah was carted to the locker room and appeared to be in real distress.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah suffered a lower leg injury in the first quarter. He went into the medical tent to be examined. Drew Sample will fill in for him for now.

Uzomah doesn’t see a huge workload, but he is a true offensive threat and can put up big numbers when needed. His loss will limit the number of game-changing Bengals receivers the Chiefs will need to account for.
