OAKLAND, Calif.—Bengals coach Zac Taylor had little information on the status of wide receiver Auden Tate after his team suffered a 17-10 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.
Tate was carted off the field in the fourth quarter after he was hit by Oakland safety Curtis Riley while making a diving catch on a 20-yard gain.
He stayed down on the grass at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum for several minutes while being tended to by the training staff.
“I can just tell you he was responsive to me,” Taylor said after the game. “He could talk and motion and all that. Hopefully it was just mostly precautionary, but again, I don’t have anymore details on that.”
The organization expected Tate to fly home with the team, NFL Network reported late Sunday.
Tate, a 22-year-old out of Florida State, waved and gave a thumbs up as he was loaded onto a cart while strapped to a stretcher.
He was Cincinnati’s leading receiver in the game with four catches for 56 yards.
