Hewitt (knee) missed practice Wednesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Hewitt sustained a knee injury in Week 5 and hasn't practiced since. He'll likely need to fit in some reps Thursday or Friday to have any chance of playing in Sunday's divisional matchup against the Steelers.
Hewitt (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
Hewitt suffered the knee injury in Sunday's game against the Browns and was unable to return. The exact severity of the injury has not been reported, but it's bad enough for Hewitt where he'll have to sit out at least one week. He's primarily served as a depth option at tight end this season, so his absence won't have much of an impact on the team's game plan this weekend.
Hewitt injured his knee Sunday against the Browns and won't return, Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News reports.
Hewitt hasn't been targeted yet this season, but he's only played 20 offensive snaps over three games. The 26-year-old tight end is used mainly for run-blocking duties and on special teams . He'll shift his focus to getting healthy for a Week 5 matchup with the Bills.
