DETROIT -- Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Leon Hall has left Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions with an Achilles' tendon injury.

Hall left in the first quarter and will not return.

Hall, in his seventh season with the Bengals, has been a starter at cornerback this season when healthy. He did miss two games with a hamstring injury before returning last weekend.

The injury to Hall likely means more playing time for backup Adam "Pacman" Jones.

The Bengals also lost defensive tackle Devon Still in the first half with an elbow injury, and Detroit offensive tackle Riley Reiff hurt his hamstring but returned later.

Lions offensive lineman Corey Hilliard hurt his knee in the second half, and Detroit cornerback Rashean Mathis went down with a groin injury.
