Vincent Rey is re-signing with the Bengals, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Rey piled up 95 tackles in 16 games (eight starts) last season, with the bulk of his production coming while Vontaze Burfict (suspension) was still recovering from injury in September and October. With Burfict suspended for the first three games of 2016, Rey should be a useful early-season IDP for a second straight year, though he may eventually move back to a depth role.
Vincent Rey left Sunday's game against the Bills with what appears to be a knee injury. He was helped off the field and then later carted to the locker room.
This is potentially a big loss for the Cincinnati Bengals defense. Rey had stepped up in a big way recent for the Bengals, taking over the primary linebacker role for the injured Vontaze Burfict.
Vincent Rey had 13 total tackles in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.
Rey has had two games in a row with double-digit tackles and has had eight or more tackles in four of the five Cincinnati Bengals games this season. Nobody's Vontaze Burfict, but Rey has come close while Burfict has been out.
