Cedric Peerman’s arm is broken, likely out for the season

Check out highlights from the Jaguars' 26-21 preseason win over the Bengals on Sunday night.

At least one of the Bengals’ injuries last night is severe, and could end a season.

According to Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com, Bengals running back Cedric Peerman suffered a broken left forearm in last night’s preseason game against the Jaguars, and his season is likely over.

Athletic trainers immediately put an air cast on Peerman on the field, which is usually a sign something has gone terribly wrong.

Peerman has been the Bengals special team captain, and went to the Pro Bowl last season.

The good news for the Bengals is that the injuries by cornerback Adam Jones (calf strain) and wide receiver A.J. Green (knee) were not as severe. Jones didn’t make it through pregame, and Green came up limping in the first quarter.

“I think I just came down on it, banged knees, but I’m fine. It sucks because I wanted to play a little bit longer,” Green told NBC’s Michelle Tafoya at halftime of last night’s broadcast.

That allows the Bengals to breathe a sigh of relief, as they could ill afford to lose any more offensive players to injury this preseason.
