Coach Marvin Lewis confirmed Friday that Atkins tore his right ACL on Thursday against the Dolphins, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Leon Hall out for the year due to an Achilles' injury and Rey Maualuga currently sidelined with an MCL injury, this is a staggering loss for the Bengals' defense, given Atkins' status as an elite interior lineman. Brandon Thompson, who took Atkins' place Thursday, figures to see expanded duties going forward, as a result of Atkins' season-ending injury.
Atkins is slated to undergo an MRI on his right ACL on Friday, the Baltimore Sun reports. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bengals are expecting the MRI to confirm a tear.

Atkins has been ruled out for the rest of Thursday's game, after suffering a knee injury in the second quarter, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Atkins was initially questionable to return but was ruled out for good shortly thereafter. The early signs aren't particularly positive, as Atkins was down on the field for a few minutes, before gingerly walking off with a bit of assistance. Atkins is arguably the best defensive tackle in the game, so this will be a huge loss for the Bengals if he's out beyond Thursday.
Atkins left Thursday's game with a right knee injury, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy reports.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Atkins is perhaps the top 4-3 tackle in the league, and his pass-rushing skills warrant a rankings boost in leagues that give big points to sacks or don’t emphasize the tackle category. But teams tend to avoid Atkins in the running game, so his 54 tackles from 2012 might be a best-case scenario, particularly given that he had just 47 the year before. Atkins should in any case continue to be a double-digit sack threat after posting 12.5 in 2012. Atkins is so explosive and plays with such good leverage that even double-teams aren't necessarily effective on him.

2012

Atkins does not post high tackle totals (just 47 total, 26 solo, in 2011), and that figures to get no better in 2012 – Atkins broke out big time as a disruptor last year and will be the top concern of opposing offensive lines. He totaled 7.5 sacks in 2011, his first as a starter, and 13 of his tackles went for a loss. Atkins is explosive, strong and plays with great leverage, making him one of the league's biggest threats to collapse or break into the pocket. Give him a boost in leagues that reward extra for tackles for “stuffs”, i.e., tackles for a loss.
