Bengals believe Kirkpatrick's leg injury not long-term
Benagls fans were rightfully upset when news of Dre Kirkpatrick's leg injury came down this week.
The first-rounder was expected to miss all of training camp with the injury - and that appears to still be the case - but his time on the bench will likely be limited to camp, and a short period afterwards.
Kirkpatrick confirmed the injury on Twitter, but will not discuss it any further.
CBS Sports issued a report that said the leg injury could be a small broken bone, but that is the extent of the rumor. No confirmation on that has come.
The Bengals will hold physicals on Thursday, and will discuss the injury afterwards. Indications from the team are that they don't expect a lengthy delay or a pre-season trip to the IR list.
