Coach misses prac­tice

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BASEBALL/NFL -

CINCIN­NATI — Coach Marvin Lewis missed the Cincin­nati Ben­gals’ prac­tice Tues­day for what the team called a mi­nor health is­sue.

Lewis used a cart to shut­tle to the prac­tice field ear­lier this week, which isn’t his usual rou­tine. Spe­cial teams coach Dar­rin Sim­mons will lead the team in his ab­sence. The Ben­gals said Lewis could re­turn this week.

The Ben­gals open the pre­sea­son at Paul Brown Sta­dium on Fri­day against Tampa Bay.

Lewis, 58, is en­ter­ing his 15th sea­son with the Ben­gals and the fi­nal year on his con­tract. He led the Ben­gals to five con­sec­u­tive play­off ap­pear­ances from 2011-2015, but has failed to win a play­off game, go­ing 0-7 dur­ing his ten­ure. No other NFL coach has lost his first seven play­off games.
