Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah injury update; plus, more NFL news from Championship Sunday

  • Cincinnati Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah was ruled out against the Chiefs after sustaining a left knee injury in the first quarter. He was carted to the locker room after exiting the field in noticeable pain. The initial belief is he has an MCL sprain, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Uzomah will have an MRI after the game to see if there's more extensive damage.
  • Kansas City Chiefs tight end Noah Gray (ankle) did not return against Cincinnati. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (concussion) was removed from the injury report prior to Sunday's kickoff, clearing him to play versus the Bengals.
  • Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee was ruled out after sustaining a knee injury against the 49ers in the first quarter.
  • San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw (ankle) defensive end Arden Key (head) and linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (knee) were ruled out early against the Rams. Prior to Sunday's kickoff against the Rams, left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) received clearance to play despite missing a week of practice. NFL Network's Stacey Dales reported that Williams is dealing with a Grade 2 high ankle sprain, which is essentially viewed as a partial tear; the team listed him on the injury report as questionable. Dales added that Williams flew in Tom Brady's medical personnel on Tuesday and has been undergoing around-the-clock in preparation for tonight's game. The team listed running back Jeff Wilson Jr., who was also listed as questionable with an ankle injury, and receiver Mohamed Sanu among its seven inactive players for the contest.
