First-round pick from this year's draft is reportedly out for the season


The Cincinnati Bengals appear to have suffered their first big blow to on the injury front and if true, this doesn't sound good whatsoever. According to both Mike Garafolo and Pro Football Talk, cornerback and first-round draft pick William Jackson has suffered a torn pectoral muscle that will sideline him for the entire 2016-17 season.

The loss would be huge, if these reports are true -- Jackson was picked out of Houston by the Bengals with the 24th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft. He entered into training camp behind Adam Jones, Dre Kirkpatrick, and Darqueze Dennard at cornerback.

Per 247sports, a torn pec can have a healing timetable of 5-6 months if surgery is required.
