CINCINNATI, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals won the "Battle of Ohio" on Sunday, but it came at a heavy price.

Starting left cornerback Rodney Heath suffered a torn left hamstring and rookie receiver Chad Johnson broke his left collarbone in Sunday's 24-14 victory over the Cleveland Browns., the team said Monday.

Heath, who had started nine games each of the last two years and three in 2001, is expected to miss the rest of the season. Johnson will be sidelined four to six weeks.

Heath twisted his knee as he attempted to tackle running back James Jackson in Sunday's game. Johnson landed on his shoulder while making a diving catch of an 18-yard pass in the third quarter.
