Whitworth, who recently moved from tackle to guard a few weeks ago has already missed some games this season. Whitworth missed the season opener against the Chicago Bears and missed the Halloween fright fest against the Miami Dolphins.
The Bengals, like the New England Patriots, are playing agame of musical linemen and the music has not stopped. Anthony Collins filled in for Whitworth the two games Whitworth was unavailable. Collins is now the starting left tackle, which means that if Whitworth is out this week, Kevin Zeitler would be back in the starting rotation filling in for Whitworth.
Zeitler, who has been nursing a foot injury, was active the past two games but has not played. Backup Mike Pollak filled in for Zeitler.
Did everyone get all that.
In other Bengals related practice news, defensive end Carlos Dunlap and linebacker James Harrison have not participated in practice this week, both are suffering from concussions.
In addition, cornerback Terence Newman (knee) and defensive tackle Devon Still (back) have not participated yet this week.
