The Bengals are heading into the divisional round of the playoffs down some personnel, as defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi will miss the rest of the postseason due to a right foot injury.

Ogunjobi sustained the injury in the third quarter of Saturday’s playoff victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. The injury was so extreme the medical cart had to come out to help him off of the field.
The cart comes out for #Bengals DT Larry Ogunjobi. This does not look good. He's been a big part of the Bengals' fierce four-man front.

The loss is certainly disappointing for Cincinnati, as the five-year veteran has made a positive impact in his first season with the Bengals, recording 49 combined tackles (12 for a loss), 16 quarterback hits and 7.0 sacks.
Ogunjobi has been soo good for Cincy, That’s going to be a tough loss if he’s out.

Defensive end Trey Hendrickson was also injured on Saturday, and it is unclear whether he will be available for next weekend’s divisional matchup against the Tennessee Titans because of a concussion.
Cincinnati defeated Las Vegas 26-19 on Saturday, tallying their first playoff win in 31 years.
