Cincinnati Bengals veteran tackle Andrew Whitworth is active for the Monday night game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and expected to start after missing all of the preseason and the first regular season game last week with a knee problem.
Whitworth, a one-time Pro Bowler, had a procedure done on one of his knees during the offseason to clean up some scar tissue that had bothered him the last few years. However, he needed a second procedure done on his knee after suffering a setback during training camp.
Whitworth will be going up against Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones and Jason Worilds Monday night as Pittsburgh is expected to rotate their outside linebackers once again. The only difference this week is that Jones is expected to make his first career start.
