It was clear that this could be a significant injury for Uzomah, as he immediately went down in pain after the play and had to be carted off the field.
Uzomah, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in the 2015 draft out of Auburn. He played out the final year of his a four-year rookie contract before agreeing to a three-year, $18 million deal with the Bengals in 2019.
In 2020, Uzomah has appeared in two games and caught eight passes for 87 yards receiving and one touchdown.
