CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga hopes to miss only one more game with a severely sprained left ankle.

Maualuga had to sit out a win over Indianapolis before the team's bye week. He had a cast removed from the ankle on Monday and is walking around in a protective boot this week.

He doesn't expect to play at Seattle on Sunday, but thinks he might be ready for a game the following week in Tennessee. That would be his best-case scenario. If the injury lingers any longer, he would miss a pivotal AFC North game in Cincinnati on Nov. 13 against the Steelers.
