Coach Marvin Lewis said the initial diagnosis was a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Atkins was hurt Thursday in the second quarter of the Bengals' 22-20 overtime loss to Miami.
Atkins, who made the Pro Bowl each of the past two seasons, walked off the field with assistance from two teammates. He came into the game with a team-high five sacks and added another in the first quarter.
