Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon, according to Tom Withers of the Associated Press.
Uzomah was being utilized by rookie QB Joe Burrow and had caught a TD prior to being hurt in Thursday's loss to the Cleveland Browns. Uzomah had top 15 tight end upside with the departure of Tyler Eifert. Drew Sample will more than likely be the lead pass-catching tight end for the Bengals going forward.
