CBSSports.com Jason La Canfora is reporting that Cincinnati Bengals rookie cornerback and first-round pick Dre Kirkpatrick suffered a leg injury while doing a final workout before training camp.
The Bengals have a policy of declining to discuss certain injury news until training camp has started.
Kirkpatrick was the 17th overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft and still will be heavily counted on to help a secondary that recently added Terrence Newman and Jason Allen.
Those three will compete will hold-overs Leon Hall, Adam”Packman” Jones and Nate Clements in a crowded defensive secondary.
It has the potential to be a quality secondary.
