Injured #Bengals WR Andrew Hawkins (ankle) made trip. Still on IR for a month, but he's going thru routes, catching passes.— Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) September 29, 2013
At one point, while running routes, Hawkins was running/cutting pretty quickly. Imagine he's getting healthier. Could be key down stretch— Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) September 29, 2013
Hawkins suffered an ankle injury during "Family Night", a practice inside Paul Brown Stadium during training camp. The team placed Hawkins on Injured Reserve with a designation to return in early September. He's eligible to begin practicing as early as week seven and can make his season debut in week nine, currently scheduled against the Miami Dolphins on Halloween night for the NFL Network's Thursday Night Football.
