ATLANTA (AP) -- Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham injured his right knee late in the first quarter of a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.
He was not expected to return to the game.
Gresham, a Pro Bowl alternate pick last year in his second season, caught a 25-yard pass from quarterback Andy Dalton to help set up a long field goal that gave the Bengals a 3-0 lead. He left the game before the drive ended.
In the past two seasons combined, Gresham caught 108 passes for 1,067 yards receiving. His six touchdowns last year tied A.J. Green for second on the team. Gresham missed two games last year with a hamstring injury.

The loss of Travelle Wharton with a knee injury last week was evident on some plays, as blitz overloads forced Andy Dalton to run right in order to avoid the hit.
Dalton’s connection for a 50-yard touchdown to A.J. Green caught Asante Samuel napping, as Dalton hit Green in stride after beating the veteran corner by a good two or three steps.
