Cincinnati Bengals punter Ben Huber had a worst-case scenario play on Sunday Night Football. Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was in the process of returning one of his punts for a touchdown when Huber was obliterated by a lethal block. Huber’s jaw was broken on the play and Mike Nugent is now attempting punts in his place.
Huber fractured jaw. Out

Apparently Huber cracked a vertebrae in his neck on the block as well. Yikes.
Bengals punter Kevin Huber not only suffered broken jaw but also a cracked vertebrae in his neck on block by Steelers' Gavin. Headed to IR.
