Bengals WR Andrew Hawkins questionable for Week 1
Bengals wide receiver Andrew Hawkins suffered an ankle injury during practice on Thursday, and head coach Marvin Lewis said today that doesn't know if Hawkins will be ready to play when the Bengals open the regular season Sept. 8 at the Bears.
Hawkins may not be ready to play in five weeks, because it's assumed that he suffered a high ankle sprain yesterday. Hawkins, a speedy slot receiver, had a couple of moments in the sun last season, turning some short receptions in to long touchdowns. He finished the season with 51 receptions for 533 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games. Regardless, he isn't much of a fantasy asset. If Hawkins misses some regular-season games, Cincy is stocked with plenty of serviceable targets for Andy Dalton. Oh, and A.J. Green. He's a little better than serviceable.
