Bengals' Huber scheduled for surgery on broken jaw

CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals punter Kevin Huber says he'll have surgery on Friday to repair his broken jaw, which was injured during a 30-20 loss in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Pittsburgh's Terence Garvin hit him in the jaw with his helmet during a block on a punt return.

Bengals players were off Tuesday, but Huber visited Paul Brown Stadium. He told The Associated Press that he broke his jaw by the chin and also cracked one vertebra.

The Bengals (9-5) need to find a punter for their home game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings (4-9-1).
