Description: Bengals SS Chinedum Ndukwe left Sunday's Week 14 game against the Steelers in the first half with a knee injury.
Insight: His knee was bent in a very awkward position and he was clearly in pain. Some have said he might be done for the year. Reggie Nelson has taken his place on the defense.

Description: With backup safeties Tom Nelson and Chinedum Ndukwe both inconsistent, beat writer Joe Reedy speculates the Bengals will use their first-round pick on the position.
Insight: Ndukwe only posted 89 tackles last season to go along with 1 sack and two interceptions. Those aren't horrendous stats, but he needs to pick up the pace to retain his job. (

Description: Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer has reportedly "not been happy with the play" of S Chinedum Ndukwe.
Insight: Expect the Bengals to look for defensive backfield help in the draft. Ndukwe could see his IDP value take a tumble if that happens. (

Description: Chinedum Ndukwe is inactive for the third straight game today. That keeps an IDP candidate away and also makes passing a little easier for the Colts. (
