Guard Travelle Wharton’s Bengals debut didn’t last very long.

Wharton, signed as a free agent this offseason after he was released by the Panthers, went down with what looked like a right knee injury on the third offensive play of the game for Cincinnati. The starting left guard was able to walk to a cart under his own power, but the fact that they needed to cart him off from there isn’t a great sign about the injury.

Otis Hudson will likely take over for the Bengals, who went three-and-out on their first offensive series after holding the Jets to the same on their first possession.
