Cincinnati Bengals center Kyle Cook returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since injuring his right ankle in a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers back in August.
Cook has been on injured reserve with a designation to return for the Bengals since suffering the injury this preseason. Cincinnati has 21 days now that Cook has began practicing to activate him to the 53-man roster. Until then, he can practice without the team needing to make a roster move.
According to Kevin Kelly of the Cincinnati Enquirer, head coach Marvin Lewis hasn’t put a timetable on when to expect Cook to re-join the active roster.
“We’ll see how he goes,” Lewis said. “He’s got to feel right about it, and I’ve got to see what I’ve got to see as time goes on.”
Trevor Robinson has started the last four games for the Bengals after veteran Jeff Faine started the first seven games of the season in place of Cook. Cook had started all 16 games each of the last three seasons for the Bengals before going down this preseason.
