CINCIN­NATI (AP) » With its back­field al­ready de­pleted and run­ning game ane­mic, the Cincin­nati Ben­gals now may have to do with­out Gio­vani Bernard.

Bernard, who has been start­ing since fea­tured back Joe Mixon in­jured a foot on Oct.

18, was held out of prac­tice Wed­nes­day with a con­cus­sion, the team said. It wasn’t clear if he would be able to play in Sun­day’s game against the New York Gi­ants (3-7).

Bernard, pre­vi­ously a si­t­u­a­tional player known more for his block­ing and pass- catch­ing, has rushed 57 times for 191 yards and two touch­downs.

If he can’t go, the likely starter would be Sa­maje Per­ine, who has played in ev­ery game this season but has just 24 car­ries for 102 yards.

Just more bad news for the hard-luck Ben­gals (2-7-1).
