Bengals center Kyle Cook has a foot injury that could sideline him for the season, another setback to Cincinnati's offensive line in the preseason.
Cook got hurt during a preseason game on Thursday night against Green Bay. He initially thought it was only a sprained ankle, but tests found more significant damage.
Cook was wearing a protective boot on his right foot on Tuesday. He said he could be sidelined for a few weeks or possibly the entire season.
The Bengals already have lost left guard Travelle Wharton for the season with a knee injury. Their backup at center is rookie Trevor Robinson, signed as an undrafted free agent from Notre Dame. He played guard in high school and college, but the Bengals moved him to center during training camp.
