Like Rey Maualuga coming off an ankle injury and working on the side field, Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham joined him on Wednesday according to Kevin Goheen of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Gresham showed up on Friday's injury report last week, but listed as probable heading into Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said that Gresham "got a little tweak on Friday" and when he warmed up on Sunday, "he felt it a little bit" when he tried opening up. So the team sat him for the game and gave Colin Cochart, not Donald Lee, the start.
Before Cincinnati's 34-12 win over the Seattle Seahawks, Gresham was tied with Jerome Simpson as the second-most targeted player on the team behind A.J. Green. Heading into Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, Gresham is second on the team with three touchdowns and receptions (25).
Donald Lee caught three passes for 44 yards receiving in Gresham's absence.
