Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco said before getting on the bus for Tuesday’s indoor workout in Mason, Ohio that he’ll practice with the knee bruise he got slipping in warm-ups Sunday night at The Meadowlands.
Head coach Marvin Lewis clearly grew tired of last week’s Twitter War The Ocho had going with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis and he’s done with the fun and games.
“Ocho got his ego bruised when he fell before the game, so he’ll be real rested today,” Lewis said in a Tuesday news conference. “He’s healthy as I think he’s Twittered all over America. But that’s what happens. The way you come back from that is to come and put up now. So now it’s time for all of us to put up.”
The only injury Lewis referenced was tendinitis in running back Larry Johnson’s knee. Safety Tom Nelson (knee), who also got hurt Sunday night, said he'll be limited Tuesday but should be OK. Lewis expects his three defensive starters who were inactive, defensive tackle Domata Peko (knee), left end Robert Geathers (knee), and safety Chris Crocker (ankle), to be ready.
