A torn Achilles tendon suffered in a charity basketball game will likely cost Bengals guard Jason Shirley the 2010 season.
Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports Shirley underwent surgery Monday. HBO’s Hard Knocks chronicled Shirley’s conversion from defensive tackle to guard, where he spent last season on the practice squad.
Shirley was a fifth-round pick in 2008 from Fresno State. His injury occured in a game with many other Bengals players, although how Shirley got injured could potentially cost him money.
The Bengals could have the option to place Shirley on the non-football injury list.
