Injuries Knock Pair of Bengals Starters out of OTAs


The Cincinnati Bengals will be without a pair of offensive starters when the team kicks off OTA practices today, according to Geoff Hobson.

Their top cornerback Leon Hall suffered a torn thumb ligament earlier this month while weight-lifting, but he’s optimistic he’ll be able to return before the completion of this year’s OTA practices, which end June 13th.

Trevor Robinson, who started most of the 2012 season at center and is expected to battle Kyle Cook for the starting gig will also miss most of this dealing with a pectoral issue.

While its certainly not ideal to have  two key players miss OTAs, this is still one of the healthiest offseason the Bengals have had during the Marvin Lewis era. Last year, the team was dealing with Hall’s recovery from a torn Achilles tendon.

And then there were the two prior offseasons and Andre Smith‘s various foot injuries that held him out of most of the offseason workouts.
