Bengals’ Clark Harris getting second opinion, won’t retire after injury

·1 min read

The Cincinnati Bengals showcased to the world just how important the long-snapper position is during Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Longtime veteran Clark Harris went down with a biceps injury and that helped produce multiple critical special teams errors that wound up costing the Bengals the game.

Harris will seek out a second opinion on the injury, but from the sounds of it, the problem is a season-ending one. But the 38-year-old veteran made it clear on Monday that there is zero chance he will let his last play in the NFL be one where he suffered an injury.

Laurel Pfahler of the Dayton Daily News captured Harris’ comments:

If Harris gets the expected bad news this week, fans can expect to see him again next summer donning the Bengals stripes. But he’ll likely have to battle Cal Adomitis, the man taking over the job this year after getting called up from the practice squad.
