It was announced on Tuesday that Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis would be away from the team with a medical issue. Stacey Dales of the NFL Network and CBS later reported good news, that Lewis has a Baker’s Cyst, rather than a blood clot.
Positive update on Marvin Lewis. More testing revealed Baker's Cyst according to team source. Clearly better prognosis than assumed clot. https://t.co/PfgqNoREAY

At this point, there is no update on how soon Lewis will return to the sideline. The initial report did say that he hopes to return as soon as possible.
The Bengals, meanwhile, are prepping for Friday’s preseason opener — a home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
