NFL NETWORK– Cincinnati Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis has returned to the team after missing just one day because of a cyst on his knee, and he will coach in Friday’s preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“I was able to return to work last night after receiving great medical care,” Lewis said in a statement on Wednesday. “I especially want to thank all of the doctors, nurses and technicians who treated me. I am glad to be back with the team as we prepare to play the Buccaneers on Friday.”
Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Lewis said doctors originally thought he was dealing with something more serious than a cyst and “was glad” it wasn’t a major issue.
“I went to practice yesterday. I didn’t really miss, I just left early,” Lewis said. “They wanted me to go back and have another couple tests done. I had three tests done yesterday. They asked that I go and get it done. My point was that two hours wasn’t going to make a huge difference. Then I was back here by five.”
Lewis missed part of Tuesday’s practice with what the team termed a “minor” health issue.
After announcing on Tuesday that Lewis will be out for a little bit due to a health issue, Lewis was back with the team on Wednesday and addressed the media in a press conference saying he’s good to go.
Glad that he is okay. But my goodness some Bengals fans are so ruthless and cold saying they are very mad that he is back with the team so suddenly. So wrong in so many ways wishing bad things to a human being health condition but at the same time you know where the fans stand with the coach and organization, still wrong tho.
