Hubbard logged three tackles (one solo), one sack, one tackle for a loss and one quarterback hit during Sunday's 37-34 win over the Buccaneers.
Hubbard stepped into Sunday's game after Carl Lawson (knee) exited the field with a season-ending knee injury, and showed well in his season-high 54 defensive snaps. The rookie third-round pick is expected to slot into the defensive end rotation for the remainder of the season in Lawson's absence, and will benefit from the Bengals' bye in Week 9 to prepare for an increased workload.
Hubbard is expected to see more snaps at defensive end with Carl Lawson (knee) out for the season, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Hubbard saw an uptick in snaps Sunday after Lawson went down, ending the day with three tackles (two solo), including a sack. He'd only played more than 30 snaps twice in the first seven games of the season, but he could be in line for a significant workload the rest of the way. Hubbard and the Bengals have a bye in Week 9 and will take on the Saints in Week 10.
