Former Clemson DT has a torn ACL
|2016-01-15 09:31:13.0- -||
The Cincinnati Bengals placed Brandon Thompson on the injured reserve last week because of a knee injury and promoted defensive tackle DeShawn Williams from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster.
Thompson's injury is now being called a torn right ACL, which he suffered during Baltimore in the final regular season game.
Thompson appeared in nine games (184 snaps) this season and had eight tackles, three tackles for a loss and a half of a sack. With Thompson in the lineup, the Bengals run defense only gave up 3.13 yards per play while giving up 4.63 yards per carry without him.
He will be a free agent after the season after signing as a third-round draft pick back in 2012.
