    Torn ACL...Too bad for the rook. From PFT:

    Bengals rookie running back Kenny Irons has pulled a Ki-Jana Carter.

    Irons, the team's second-round pick in the 2007 draft, tore an ACL in the preseason opener against the Lions on Thursday night.

    As Bengals.com points out, Carter's torn ACL came against the Lions as well, in a 1995 preseason game. Carter was the first overall selection in the draft that year.

    The team hoped that Irons would perform better than 2004 first-round selection Chris Perry, whose career as the backup to Rudi Johnson has been marred by injury. Perry currently is on the PUP list.

    Too bad. They are a team initially I thought may have a glut of RBs, possible trade partners.

    As a side note, I worked with a guy who played at Penn State with both Ki-Jana Carter and Kyle Brady. He used to say that Carter was the fastest human he had ever seen and one knee injury ended it all. Man I am getting old...
