As they keep attempting to get as many players back for the regular season opener against the Ravens, the Bengals held out a number of players from Tuesday's practice. Now that we know that center Kyle Cook suffered some type of significant ankle injury, he's now lumped in with a number of teammates who have been fighting their way back since early this preseason.
It was reported that tight end Jermaine Gresham, and defensive ends Robert Geathers and Carlos Dunlap were working in a limited basis on Tuesday on the rehab field. Dre Kirkpatrick, who Marvin Lewis says is fighting a form of tendonitis, wasn't practicing and neither were fellow cornerbacks Jason Allen and Adam Jones, continuing their frustrating offseason. Bernard Scott wasn't practicing either and he is sounding questionable for Week One.
There wasn't any news on Rey Maualuga's practice status, though we'll keep searching and find out more. It appears that he and Dunlap are progressing well with their respective knee sprains that they incurred in the week one preseason matchup against the Jets.
