Bengals lose first-rounder Dax Hill to shoulder injury

Cincinnati Bengals first-round pick Dax Hill left Sunday’s blowout of the Carolina Panthers with a shoulder injury.

The team later ruled Hill out on a day they had already lost Chris Evans to a serious-looking knee injury.

Severity of Hill’s injury is harder to gauge given that the game was well within hand when the team made the announcement. He was dipping his toes in at cornerback while the team missed Chidobe Awuzie, Tre Flowers and Mike Hilton in the slot.

The Bengals have a bye next week to rest any issues but this won’t stop the budding concerns about depth at cornerback as the season continues.
