Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports Bengals center Kyle Cook suffered a foot injury in Thursday’s 27-13 loss to the Packers last Thursday but did play most of the game.
He was in a boot on Friday but indicated that it was nothing serious. He was not in a boot on Sunday but was not in locker room during the team’s media period on Monday. Head coach Marvin Lewis said after Monday’s practice that Cook was visiting a specialist and that he would not play in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Colts. Undrafted rookie Trevor Robinson was taking snaps with the first team at center on Monday.
Cook’s visit to a foot specialist on Monday must have yielded bad news. Per league sources, the Bengals are bringing in Jeff Faine for a tryout tomorrow.
Whether or not Cook is lost for the season remains to be seen, but indications are that he will miss a large amount of time. Cook did suffer a foot injury in 2008 in which he was lost for the season. Robinson has had a good preseason but it would be difficult to go into the Sept. 10 opener at Baltimore with two rookies on the offensive line.
