Marvin Lewis: Kirkpatrick Will Dress And Could Play (Just Don't Buy It)

New, comments

There seems to be what could be considered confusion that's coming from Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, who said that cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick would be able to suit up for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, even saying "He could play Sunday."

Lewis (sorta) clarified.

"His time table is whenever we decide he’s one of our best opportunities," said Lewis. "He’s got to get through that and he’s got to get the ins and outs of everything we’re doing as well. You can’t make the game-time adjustments and the things that occur until you’re in a game situation."

Last month Lewis told reporters that a "reasonable timetable" for his NFL debut wouldn't be until, at least, after the Oct. 28 bye week.
