Lewis talks Huber's injury & playing the Vikings

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Marvin Lewis said punter Kevin Huber is in a neck brace and will need oral surgery after his season ending injury in Pittsburgh.  

Huber, who broke his jaw and cracked a vertebrae after a blind side hit in Sunday's loss to the Steelers, will miss the rest of the season, but his career is not in jeopardy because of the injuries, according to the Bengals head coach.  

The play was not flagged and the Steeler was not fined for his hit, Lewis was asked if he thought the play was dirty.  

"It doesn't really matter what I think," said Marvin Lewis.  "The people and the powers that be will take care of that.  I think there's been enough talk about it and we just need to move on."   The Bengals brought in several punters for a tryout on Tuesday and will sign one to the roster this week.   

Up next for the Bengals is a home game with the Vikings on Sunday. 

The Bengals now lead the Baltimore Ravens by just one game in the AFC North with the Ravens the final game on the regular season schedule on December 29th.   

"We've got a lot on the line," said coach.  "We've got to go play and win the football games.  We've got to win the last two and if we take care of that, we take care of ourselves.  I prefer that we're at home for the last part of the schedule.  Crowds have been great, it's going to be a nice day on Sunday and we're playing a good football team that's going to come here and try and beat our brains in, so we've got to play."

Huber says he'll have surgery on Friday to repair his broken jaw.
