The Cincinnati Bengals placed punter Kevin Huber on injured reserve due to a fractured jaw and neck injury, ending his season.
He's being replaced by Shaun Powell.
Huber got hurt on a crushing block by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin on Sunday night.
Huber had a 40.5 net punting average this season.
He is the Bengals’ all-time leader in gross punting average (44.2), net average (39.1) and ratio of inside-20 kicks to touchbacks (3.69-to-1). Last year he set Bengals season records for gross average (46.6) and net (42.0).
Powell is a second-year NFL player from Florida State. He entered the NFL last season as a college free agent with Buffalo, playing in the Bills’ last 13 games and setting a team rookie record with a gross punting average of 44.0. He played in Buffalo’s first five games this season, averaging 46.1 yards with a 35.2 net, with 10 inside-20 kicks and five touchbacks before being released.
