CINCINNATI -- Bengals receiver Antonio Chatman suffered a neck injury and was wheeled off the field as a precaution Sunday during the second quarter of a game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Chatman was hit high and hard by safety Quintin Mikell after he made a catch. Chatman fumbled the ball as Mikell brought him down with an arm around his neck.

The sixth-year receiver stayed on the ground on his back after the Eagles recovered the ball. He raised his right leg while trainers attended to him. Chatman was strapped to a back board and wheeled off the field.
