CINCINNATI (AP) -- Bengals receiver Andrew Hawkins will wear a cast for 10 days to try to heal his sprained left ankle, making it doubtful he'll be ready for the season opener.
Coach Marvin Lewis said Saturday that Hawkins will be evaluated again when the cast is removed and the club will have a better idea how long he'll be sidelined.
"It allows the opportunity to make sure we don't inadvertently injure it more," Lewis said. "It gives it a chance to settle down and begin to mend. He's very optimistic that he'll be ready to go at some point here, so we'll see.
"At least for the next 10 days or so he's going to be in this cast. Then we'll have a little better update after that."
If he's not ready for the opener Sept. 8 in Chicago, he could be placed on injured reserve with an opportunity to return at some point during the season. Teams can designate one player on injured reserve as available to return. Otherwise, a player i...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Cincinnati Bengals have stated that wide receiver Andrew Hawkins could end up on the injured reserve list with a designation to return for the 2013 season.
Hawkins has been dealing with an ankle injury that seems to be more serious than people thought.
Hawkins had a pretty impressive season in 2012 with 51 receptions, 533 yards and 4 touchdowns. Hopefully they’ll get him...
Bengals rookie Rex Burkhead looked sharp, rushing for 52 yards on nine carries against Atlanta, in the first preseason game for each team.Fantasy Spin:Burkhead has some talent, but with BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard ahead of him on the depth chart he doesn't figure to get much work this season.
It may be called the NASCAR Nationwide Series but Sprint Cup drivers continue to dominate. On Saturday Brad Keselowski guided his No. 22 Ford Mustang to victory lane in the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen.
Keselowski crossed the finish line first at the 11 turn 2.45 mile track located in Watkins Glen, NY.

We reported last week that the Bengals and defensive tackle Geno Atkins are working on a contract extension.
According to the National Football Post, the Bengals and Atkins’ agents aren’t close to getting a new deal done.

Geno Atkins is an absolute beast at defensive tackle, and wants to be paid as such.
Atkins, who is the best 4-3 defensive tackle in football, has one year and $1.42 million remaining on the rookie contract he signed with the Bengals in 2010.
After locking up Carlos Dunlap to a long term deal, the Bengals and Atkins would like to get a deal done sooner than later.
The two sides...

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Cincinnati Bengals are looking to show they're better equipped to be a factor in the AFC after losing in the first round of the playoffs each of the last two years.
The Bengals made their opening case Thursday night with a 34-10 preseason win over an Atlanta Falcons team coming off a spot in the NFC championship game.
Cincinnati showed off new depth at quarterback...
The Bengals long had a reputation for having loads of prima-donnas on their roster. With the likes of Carson Palmer, Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens all on one roster, it was no wonder the Bengals struggled to win. Any team that plays with a quarterback that says he would rather retire than come back, is basically destined for failure.
After Ochocinco, Owens and Palmer left, the...
It’s been a stellar 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series season for rookie Kyle Larson.
The Earnhart/Ganassi Racing development driver running for Turner/Scott Motorsports in Nationwide competition this year entered Saturday’s Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International sixth in the standings just 47 points behind leader Austin Dillon.
After a rough day and very busy weekend for the youngster...
The Atlanta Falcons opened up their preseason against the Cincinnati Bengals at the Georgia Dome. It's silly to say it was a "loss" because I'm still not convinced that anyone actually wins or loses preseason games. Maybe if we'd change the name to Player Evaluation Scrimmages, the fans would be much less apt to lose their collective minds over a lopsided score...
