Update: Boyd has been ruled out for the rest of the game with a finger injury.
The Cincinnati Bengals are taking on the Cleveland Browns in an AFC North battle. Early in the first quarter, wide receiver Tyler Boyd suffered a finger injury. He was visibly upset and in pain and threw his glove and helmet before heading to the locker room.

Boyd headed into this week as Cincinnati’s third-best wideout. He has 45 receptions on 65 targets for 655 yards and four touchdowns through 12 games. Boyd plays his role well in the offense, though, and his being sidelined certainly doesn’t help Cincinnati. As long as he is sidelined, either Trenton Irwin or Trent Taylor will likely see an uptick in usage.
