Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson is likely to miss games against the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons while recovering from a sprained knee ligament.

Johnson left Thursday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens with what the team labeled a sprained MCL. Bengals.com first reported the injury and said Johnson would likely miss “multiple games.”

Depending on the severity of the sprain, Johnson could be sidelined 2-4 weeks.

Center Billy Price also left Thursday’s game, and according to the team web site, he’s dealing with an ankle injury. With 10 days before Week 3, the rookie first-round pick could be ready to play on Sept. 23.
