Chad Ochocinco Called Out By Coach Marvin Lewis, Fires Back On Twitter

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI -- The Bengals' self-described dynamic duo is down to one, and even that might be pushing it.

A bad left ankle is limiting receiver Chad Ochocinco, who didn't practice Wednesday and expects to have a reduced role in the last two games. He's not happy that coach Marvin Lewis says he's being "mopey" about the whole thing.

Lewis used the term in a conference call with San Diego writers Wednesday. When Ochocinco heard about it, he fired back on Twitter, saying he deserves more respect.

Terrell Owens, the other half of the receiving duo, is out for the rest of the season after knee surgery. The Bengals (3-11) play San Diego (8-6) at home on Sunday.
