    According to Bengals.com, rookie LB Sean Porter has a torn labrum in his shoulder and the Bengals are currently "trying to decide if Porter needs season-ending surgery" or if they'll "let him play with a harness."

    As a fourth-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft, Porter is essentially safe on the 53-man roster. If Porter is out for the season, there's a significant position battle that will go down for the final two spots (presuming that the team keeps six) between Vinnie Rey, J.K. Schaffer, and Jayson DiManche. Bruce Taylor, who tied for second on the team with five tackles against the Titans on Saturday, could factor at some point.
