CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement on Wednesday morning that he was able to return to work on Tuesday following a minor medical issue that prevented him attending practice on Tuesday afternoon.

"I was able to return to work last night after receiving great medical care," Lewis said in the statement. "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 (Tampa Bay) Buccaneers on Friday.”

It was reported on Tuesday that Lewis had a Baker's Cyst, which is defined as a fluid-filled cyst that causes a bulge and a feeling of tightness behind the knee. The pain can get worse when a person fully flexes or extends their knee or when they're active.

Lewis was seen at times during and after Monday's practice riding around in a golf cart rather than walking.
