Vigil expected to miss a month | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Bengals LB Nick Vigil suffered a left MCL sprain in the 1st quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers and is expected to miss the next month, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. LB Vontaze Burfict saw a spike in playing time -- from 53.1% to 83.6% -- and Vincent Rey stepped in to play 64% of the snaps after Vigil left. He's the best bet to start in Vigil's spot over the next few games.

Bengals LB Nick Vigil (ankle) is active for today's game against the Jets. He managed just 1 limited practice this week, so there's obviously risk of re-injury. But Vigil also brings a high tackle floor and ceiling as long as he stays on the field. He belongs in most IDP lineups where he would have otherwise been in line to start.

Bengals LB Nick Vigil (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a limited Friday workout. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
