Bengals Veteran Carted Off Practice Field During Training Camp

Another Cincinnati Bengals practice is in the books. Unfortunately, Thursday's session didn't end on a positive note when a veteran offensive player was carted off the practice field. 

Bengals fourth-year tight end Drew Sample was having his left leg looked at following Thursday's practice. It didn't look serious until Sample was carted back to the locker room with a medical trainer. 

Hopefully it's nothing serious, but this is worth keeping an eye on. Sample projects as the Bengals' No. 2 tight end this season. 

"TE Drew Sample just left practice on the cart. It appeared he was having his left leg looked at by the training staff," said Marisa Contipelli. 

Here's a look at the moment Drew Sample left the field on a cart. 

Drew Sample was taken by the Bengals in the 2019 NFL Draft. He's been in Cincinnati ever since, where he's caught 56 passes for 460 yards and one touchdown. 

Sample is currently running with the team's second-team offense behind Hayden Hurst, but projects to get plenty of playing time this upcoming season. 

Hopefully he's not dealing with a serious injury after Thursday's practice.
