Andrew Hawkins to miss rest of preseason

CINCINNATI — Bengals receiver Andrew Hawkins is expected to miss the last two preseason games because of a sprained ankle, leaving him a candidate to wind up on injured reserve.

Hawkins sprained his left ankle while trying to make a catch on Aug. 1, and it was placed in a cast.

Coach Marvin Lewis said Tuesday that Hawkins will get the cast off this week so the ankle can be examined and he can start therapy, But he’ll be in a protective boot for a couple of weeks so that he doesn’t aggravate the injury.

Teams can designate one player on injured reserve during the preseason who may return during the season once healthy. Last year, center Kyle Cook returned from an ankle injury after missing the first 12 games.
