Dre Kirkpatrick out six weeks with fractured knee

Post  SamP on Wed Jul 25, 2012 3:59 pm

We now have a clearer picture of the injury suffered by cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, and the news is not good for the Cincinnati Bengals.

NFL Network has learned from a source close to Kirkpatrick that the first-round pick fractured a bone in his knee. He is expected to miss six weeks and likely the start of the regular season.

Kirkpatrick injured the knee while preparing for training camp, creating a situation where the Bengals could potentially withhold pay from the former Alabama standout. He will fail the team's physical and land on the physically unable to perform list.

Kirkpatrick tweeted about the injury on Tuesday night, apologizing for the circumstances. If he doesn't pass a physical and come off the PUP list by the season opener, he'll be forced to miss six weeks before he can return to action.

Kirkpatrick's injury leaves the Bengals vulnerable at cornerback. The team is already dealing with the unclear status of Leon Hall, who is attempting to come back from a torn Achilles tendon.
