Bengals Linebacker Is Out For Season

After a bruising hit on the second play of the Benglas game Sunday,  David Pollack will be out for the season.

Pollack, a second-year lineback from the University of Georgia, tried to make a tackle with the top of his helmet.

He was carted off of the filed on a back brace and spent the night at University Hospital.

During his press conference, head coach Marvin Lewis said he broke a one of the bones in his neck. Pollack is wearing a halo to stabilize his neck and is expected to make a full recovery. Lewis also said that the starting linebacker watched the rest of the game. The Bengals won the game 34- to -17.

Pollack is one of three starters who were injured during the game. Center Rich Braham suffered a bruised knee and strong safety Dexter Jackson suffered a severely sprained ankle and are not expected to play against the Steelers next Sunday.
