Bengals P Kevin Huber keeps sense of humor despite broken jaw
Asked whether the block that broke his jaw should have been a penalty, Bengals punter Kevin Huber side-stepped the query.
By now, you should have seen the massive block that Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin laid on Bengals punter Kevin Huber on Sunday night that ended up breaking Huber's jaw and cracking one of his vertebrae.
Huber has been placed on IR and is done for the season, and the team signed former Bills punter Shawn Powell to take his place.
But when asked Wednesday if he thought the block was illegal, Huber didn't find it necessary to comment.
"It's not an easy thing to watch," Huber said, via Bengals.com. "It's not my job to make that decision. He came for a block, he got me blocked, and they scored a touchdown. It worked out for them on that play. It’s too bad it happened. I wish I could be out there playing."
Instead, he'll endure four to six weeks of rehab after he undergoes jaw surgery Friday. The broken bone in his neck apparently isn't quite as serious. Huber just hopes he's ready for the golf course by March.
"Or when the weather breaks," a hopeful Huber said.
In case you missed it, here's the hit from the play.
But hey, at the least Huber has kept his sense of humor.
