ESPN: Bengals WR Chad Johnson "Ocho Cinco" was back at work
Friday, a day after being sent home before the Pittsburgh game for
disciplinary reasons. HC Lewis wanted to move on from the latest
Bengals controversy, and after the team fell to 1-9-1. The latest
loss Thursday night against the Steelers was a 27-10 defeat in
which the Bengals managed just 208 yards of offense. Lewis said
the punishment fit the violation, and declined to go into details
of the incident. Ocho Cinco was late for a team meeting Wednesday
night, and then had a verbal altercation with a coach or coaches.
"I think, yeah, any time a player has a thing that occurs like
that, you let your teammates down," Lewis said Friday. "I think
any time that you have to sit a player down, it sends a message to
players, because that's the only thing they get and understand."
He said losing playing time often gets players' attention more
than losing money, although Lewis said Ocho Cinco will be fined an
undisclosed sum.
