Patriots safety Devin McCourty and defensive lineman Dominique Easley were both knocked out of Sunday’s game against the Bengals.

McCourty was ruled out after suffering a rib injury, and a shoulder injury sidelined Easley.

Cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a hamstring injury in the third quarter and returned in the fourth after initially having his return labeled questionable.

Revis left the game in the third quarter after trying to tackle Jeremy Hill low. After the trainers came out onto the field to assess him, he got up under his own power and was taken to the Patriots’ locker room.

Logan Ryan entered the game for Revis, and Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green — who was being covered by Ryan — for a touchdown on the next play.


Wide receiver Danny Amendola was checked for a concussion in the first half. Defensive linemen Chandler Jones was limited with shoulder injury. Linebacker Dont’a Hightower was inactive because of a left knee injury.
