Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told WLW radio in Cincy via, that he believes rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick will be back in time for week one of the regular season.

“It’s really a minor injury and unfortunately too much has been made of this again,” Lewis said, before venting (again) regarding Kirkpatrick’s decision to talk about the injury on Twitter.  ”We’re going to fix this whole Twitter thing.  I can’t wait for that.  I’m sick and tired of it and our guys don’t understand how to use it and we’re going to fix it but more is made of it than anything.  It’s a setback for him because he is going to have to take some time but the good thing is he’s here with our people, he’s done everything asked of him, it’s been a couple of weeks so he’s pretty far along now with it. . . . Really too much gets made of this stuff and I know there’s nothing else important and I know that’s the deal.”

Marvin Lewis imposes Twitter ban during camp

Twitter is one of my favorite tools as a fan and blogger. It allows me to keep up with players around the NFL, and sometimes even allows fans and players to interact on a more personal level than an autograph signing. That's why it pains me, to a small degree, that Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has instituted a Twitter ban through training camp for all Bengals players. According...
