Huber was diagnosed with a broken jaw after being leveled by Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin during an Antonio Brown punt return in Cincinnati's 30-20 loss. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the hit might also have resulted in a cracked vertebrae for Huber, according to a person who has spoken to the player.
The test results show a crack, but the current belief is that it's an old hairline fracture, not something caused by Garvin's hit.
Huber is headed to injured reserve. Signing a punter has moved to the top of the Bengals' priority list this week.
