Kyle Cook returns to practice for Bengals


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.

  1. i was drinkin at the bar during the bengals – raiders game,

    and in the 4th qtr, sanu fumbled it , and the db from oakland batted the ball back in bounds and tyvon branch took it for a score , and the ref called everything back due to a “inadvertent” whistle. the bengals re-played 3rd and converted.

    so the TD was nullified because the ref accidentally blew his whistle. so they didnt stop them on 3rd down, didnt get the clear fumble recovery or get the fumble recover TD.

    now all that being said it was still a 10 point game in the 4th, with momentum with oakland.

    NOW THAT IS WHY THERE WAS A FIGHT btw whitworth & kelly,

    kelly went off outta frustration, it was pretty wild for a minute there.

    gotta love steve tasker on the play by play.

  2. Glad to have Cook back, but Trevor Robinson has been performing admirably lately. Unlike many of my Bengals past problems, this is a good one to have.

    And I rarely put down players since most all play at high-levels, but Jeff Faine is flat out awful. This will be his last year in the league.

  3. Ditto on the Rookie Trevor Robinson, bengalheel. I’m not sure how that guy didn’t get drafted.
    I don’t think it’s a lock that Cook gets his job back. The line is performing very well even with 2 rookies & a 2nd year player starting. They weren’t getting these kinds of runs last year when Cook was starting and Robinson can be seen downfield blocking farther than any O-lineman we have had here in a long time and plays hard through the whistle.
