Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick suffered what appeared to be a serious injury in the first quarter today.

Kirkpatrick had someone roll onto his knee and stayed down on the field, and medical personnel eventually helped him to a cart and took him to the locker room.

Ravens running back Mark Ingram, a college teammate of Kirkpatrick’s at Alabama, stood near him as he was being attended to by the medical staff and looked concerned.

The Ravens lead the Bengals 14-7 at the end of the first quarter.
