Report: Bengals "hopeful" to get Domata Peko back by season finale.

Watching Sunday's game, it definitely felt like something was missing when you didn't see Domata Peko's wild hair clogging the middle of the line of scrimmage. He missed Sunday's game against the Lions after suffering an MCL sprain several weeks ago.

Geoff Hobson writes:

After undergoing arthroscopic surgery for a knee problem, defensive tackle Domata Peko is out with the Bengals hoping they get him back in time for Jan. 3 regular-season finale in New Jersey against the Jets.

Losing Peko will put a damper on the Bengals rush defense, which ranks second in the league right now, with games against Adrian Peterson, LaDainian Tomlinson and Darren Sproles upcoming.

Also out this Sunday against the Vikings will be Bernard Scott.
