Bengals Injury Report: Starting T Andrew Whitworth And LB Vontaze Burfict Limited Thursday


The Cincinnati Bengals have now released their first injury report for the week as they prepare to host the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday night and a veteran offensive lineman appears to be close to returning for them.

Starting left tackle Andrew Whitworth (knee) was limited Thursday and is getting closer to returning to action. Whitworth, who reportedly had setback a few weeks ago following offseason surgery to relieve scar tissue in one of his knees, missed the Bengals season opener last week against the Chicago Bears.

While there is a chance Whitworth might play Monday night against the Steelers, his backup Anthony Collins played well in his absence against the Bears, so the team might very well decide to hold their veteran out one more week.

Linebacker Vontaze Burfict (thigh) and cornerback Brandon Ghee (concussion) were also limited on Thursday for the Bengals while safety Jeromy Miles (hamstring) and guard Mike Pollak (knee) both were listed as not practicing.

    The D needs to contribute a few sacks and some turnovers and points or it will be a long night…or a long year.
