Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick tweeted he’s having a medical procedure Friday but it’s not expected to derail his training camp.
Kirkpatrick, Cincinnati’s first pick in last year’s draft, missed virtually all of his first training camp as well as the first half of the season with a bone spur in his knee. Kirkpatrick went on injured reserve Christmas Day when the knee became irritated and indications are he’s underdoing what appears to be a cleanup rather than a major procedure. He was never able to dog the injury bug. After he played in five games (two tackles on defense, two on special teams), he suffered a concussion Dec. 2 in San Diego, missed the next two games, and when it looked like he was ready to come back the knee flared up.
