C.J. Uzomah rips knee brace off at Bengals’ Super Bowl rally at Paul Brown Stadium

Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah knew what 30,000 fans standing in the cold at Paul Brown Stadium wanted to see. And he delivered.

Uzomah might be listed as questionable for Super Bowl 56 with an MCL sprain he suffered during the AFC Championship win against the Chiefs, but he’s made it known that he will play against the Rams. And on Monday night, the crowd erupted when Uzomah removed the brace he was wearing on his leg and hurled it.

From the Bengals via Twitter, a retweet of video from NFL Network:

“I don’t really care too much about how I’m feeling, to be honest, when I’m out there,” Uzomah said earlier, per The Enquirer’s Kelsey Conway. “I’m not missing the biggest game of my life.”

The Lakers ruled Davis out of the
