Video: AJ McCarron injures wrist on final play of overtime loss on Monday Night Football
Cincinnati QB AJ McCarron mishandled a snap that led to a game-ending turnover in an overtime loss against Denver on Monday Night Football.
And while that’s a bummer for fans of the former Alabama QB, there may be more bad news coming.
It appears as though McCarron may have injured his left wrist on the final play of the game:

According to ESPN’s report, McCarron was seen with his left hand and wrist wrapped at the post game presser last night.
He is expected to have an MRI performed on the wrist soon to determine the extent of the damage.
As for the play, McCarron offered up the following explanation:
“It’s my fault. I told the guys that,” McCarron said. “The snap caught me a little by surprise. I was looking just to see how they were adjusting to A.J. Green coming in motion, and it just kind of slipped through my hands and hit my rib protector and bounced off. It’s my fault. Simple as that.”
McCarron had been filling in for Bengals injured starter Andy Dalton. Cincinnati now faces the possibility of being without both of them as the playoffs approach.
Recently, McCarron snapped an ugly streak of nearly 30 seasons without a Crimson Tide QB earning a win as the starting QB for an NFL team.
