Trevor Robinson Expected To Miss "A Good Chunk" Of OTAs

Center Trevor Robinson, who is expected to compete for the starting center job this year, won't be able to do much work during offseason practices with a "pectoral issue".

The Bengals will not have center Trevor Robinson available during practice on Tuesday, who is dealing with a "pectoral issue" according to Bengals.com. Reading between the lines, it appears possible that Robinson could miss OTAs entirely, which runs through June 13 when the team breaks from mandatory minicamp. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis indicated to reporters during the NFL Combine in February that Robinson will compete with Kyle Cook as the starting center.

As a result seventh-round rookie T.J. Johnson figures to receive significant work as Cook's backup center this week and possibly for the entire four weeks of OTAs, depending on the severity of the injury (which is unknown right now). Either way Robinson "should" be ready for training camp in late July. The opening also gives fifth-round rookie Tanner Hawkinson an opportunity to take snaps as a promising utility backup lineman that could possibly work all five positions during practices in the spring and summer.
