Cincinnati Bengals Center Kyle Cook "Should Be Back By Midseason"

New, comments

Kyle Cook returned to the lockerroom following surgery and projected that he should return by midseason.

According to Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer, Bengals center Kyle Cook, who returned to the lockerroom on Thursday, had surgery to repair a high ankle sprain (more severe cases involve ligament damage). He suffered his injury against the Green Bay Packers and was placed on the Injured Reserve/Recall List, allowing him to return later in the season.

While Cook recovers, the team signed Jeff Faine and found perhaps a nugget in Trevor Robinson as a backup interior lineman. Faine, who joined the team with "ridiculously bad Pro Football Focus" grades, played well considering that before the Bengals signed him, he hasn't been with a team since last March.

Reedy writes that Cook said "he should be back by midseason."
