Ben Huber fractures his jaw against the Steelers.

The Cincinatti Bengals are taking a beating from the Pittsburgh Steelers, and punter Ben Huber got the worst of it.

The Steelers’ Antonio Brown was returning a punt from Huber in the first quarter when Brown broke free leaving the Bengals’ punter as one of the few people left to make a tackle.

Steelers special teams player Terence Gavin led with his helmet to put a block on Huber, which knocked him to the ground and leaving him bleeding from the mouth.

The Bengals announced Huber has a fractured jaw and will not be returning to the game.

The hit did not result in a flag but it is likely the NFL will fine Gavin for the hit.

Bengals place kicker Mike Nugent will act as the punter for the rest of the game.
