Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis returned to the team on Tuesday evening after missing practice with a “minor health issue.”
“I was able to return to work last night after receiving great medical care,” Lewis said, via Cincinnati’s team website. “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.”
NFL Network’s Stacey Dales reported Tuesday that the Bengals head coach was dealing with a cyst in his knee.
Lewis, 58, is entering his 15th season as Cincinnati’s head coach, but is coming off his first losing season (6-9-1) since 2010.
The Bengals longtime head coach is expected to be on the sidelines when the Bengals open their preseason schedule against the Buccaneers Friday.
