Bengals receiver Andrew Hawkins is aiming to return to the lineup by the middle of the season.
He was placed on short-term IR on Wednesday and won't be available to come off of the designation until Week 7. It appears Week 9 against Miami may be the earliest Hawkins gets back on the field, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
“If I can be a fresh eight games … my plan is to add a dimension to the offense, add a dimension to special teams and hopefully be a spark that helps us win a Super Bowl,” Hawkins said, via the newspaper. “That's the gameplan. Period.”
