(CelebNMusic247 – NewsBengals Punter Kevin Huber to Undergo Surgery

Bengals punter Kevin Huber says he’ll have surgery on Friday to repair his broken jaw, which was injured during a 30-20 loss in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Huber was seriously injured after he was hit by Pittsburgh’s Terence Garvin in the jaw with his helmet and cracked his ribs during a block on a punt return.

Here’s the drop:

Bengals players were off Tuesday, but Huber visited Paul Brown Stadium. He told The Associated Press that he broke his jaw by the chin and also cracked one vertebra.

The Bengals (9-5) need to find a punter for their home game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings (4-9-1).

Huber will be replaced by Shawn Powell, who started the year with the Bills before he was cut.
