Bengals WR Hawkins to IR, can return

The SportsXchange

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Andrew Hawkins was placed on injured reserve with the designation to return.

Hawkins hasn't practiced since injuring his ankle Aug. 1.

He finished the 2012 season second to AJ Green in receptions with 51 and scored four touchdowns.

Offensive tackle Dennis Roland was re-signed and could even be active Sunday when the Bengals open the regular season at Chicago. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right tackle Andre Smith have been slowed by knee injuries.

Hawkins can return to practice Week 7 and is eligible to first play in a game Week 9.
