Cincinnati Bengals star defensive tackle DJ Reader is expected to miss the majority of the remaining NFL season.

Reader, 28, was drafted with the 166th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans and started seven games as a rookie.

The defensive tackle has been undoubtedly Cincinnati’s best player through the first three weeks and is seen as a significant loss to the team.

The Bengals won their first game of the season on Sunday against Joe Flacco’s New York Jets, as Reader made two tackles before being ruled out.

Next up for Cincinnati is a tough test against the undefeated Miami Dolphins and star QB Tua Tagovailoa.
