The Cincinnati Bengals have been on fire lately, winning 10 of their last 12 games and six straight heading into Week 16.

Hayden Hurst Injury Update

Despite all this winning, the Bengals received some tough news on Friday ahead of their Week 16 game against the New England Patriots as tight end Hayden Hurst was ruled out with a calf injury.

Hurst will miss his third straight game with the injury, leaving Joe Burrow without his favorite tight end for Saturday's pivotal AFC matchup in Foxborough. The timing isn't great for Cincy, as the Bengals are clinging to a one-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North. That said, making sure everyone is healthy for the playoffs is a priority.

Cincinnati is currently favored by 3 points against New England, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
