Dre Kirkpatrick left the Cincinnati Bengals ' season-ending playoff loss to the Steelers with a quad injury. He'll also have to adjust to life without both secondary coaches, who left to join other organizations, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The Bengals are losing a lot of their continuity, having lost Hue Jackson to the Browns as well. Kirkpatrick had a rough season, frequently being picked on a lot by opposing quarterbacks without recording any interceptions. He did have 70 tackles and 16 passes defensed, but a lot of that is based on volume being targeted so frequently.
The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that cornerback Adam Jones left the Week 4 game against the Chiefs with groin and elbow injuries.
Jones was listed as questionable all week due to the latter issue. He has 21 tackles and one interception on the season.
The Bengals' secondary is hurting with safety George Iloka out and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick playing with a wrist injury. If Jones is sidelined for a significant amount of time, look for Leon Hall to play in his place.
Kirkpatrick played in all 16 games (two starts) recorded 23 total tackles in 2014. He was selected by the Bengals as the 17th overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
Zeitler, the 27th pick in 2012, started 12 games in 2014, having missed four due to a calf injury. He has been a three-year starter for the Bengals.
