Bengals OL Andrew Whitworth will return to left tackle in 2014.
This was always the expectation after the Bengals lost Anthony Collins to the Bucs. Whitworth was a beast after shifting to left guard last Week 13, but hardly struggled on the blindside before the move. Now 32, Whitworth is signed through 2015. Mar 14 - 1:13 AM

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth would "prefer to play left tackle."

Whitworth may be a victim of his own success as he was an above average run blocker after switching to left guard halfway through 2013. New Bengals OC Hue Jackson believes in the power-run game, and Whitworth's physicality would be a great asset on the interior line.

The Bengals may explore moving LT Andrew Whitworth to left guard permanently under new OC Hue Jackson.

Jackson is a power-blocking proponent, and Whitworth's "violent" playing style makes him a strong fit at left guard, where he flourished in six starts to close out last season. Whitworth kicking inside hinges on the Bengals' ability to re-sign free agent LT Anthony Collins, who shouldn't be cheap to retain.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth suffered a concussion in Wednesday's practice, and is uncertain for Week 16.

It gives Whitworth precious little time to get cleared for Sunday's game against the Vikings. He'll almost certainly be out, leaving Anthony Collins to man Andy Dalton's blindside. Collins started in Week 1 as Whitworth recovered from a knee injury. It's a concern, but not enough to downgrade Dalton from the ranks of the QB1s in a dream matchup.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) is active for Monday night's Week 2 game against the Steelers.

Whitworth practiced on a limited basis all week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He missed the opener against the Bears. Anthony Collins filled in admirably, but he'll revert back to swing tackle duties. The Bengals' inactives: WR Dane Sanzenbacher, CB Brandon Ghee, RB Rex Burkhead, G Mike Pollak, T Tanner Hawkinson, TE/FB Orson Charles, and DE Margus Hunt.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) is officially questionable for Week 2.

Whitworth practiced on a limited basis this week and has a chance to return for Monday night against the Steelers. If the Bengals decide to hold him out, Anthony Collins will make his second consecutive start in his absence.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) was limited in Friday's practice.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) has resumed practicing.

Whitworth revealed Thursday morning that he suffered a setback in August, but there's now a chance he'll suit up for Monday's game against the Steelers. Fill-in Anthony Collins wasn't a disaster in Week 1, but Whitworth's return would be a huge boost for Andy Dalton and company.

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) revealed he had a setback in August.

Now we know why Whitworth has been so slow to recover. He first went under the knife way back in March and then needed another procedure to take out scar tissue in August. The Bengals are optimistic they'll finally get Andy Dalton's blind-side protector back for Monday night's game against the Steelers.
Thu, Sep 12, 2013 10:45:00 AM

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) said he's close to returning to practice and is waiting on medical clearance.

There's a chance Whitworth could be available for Monday night's game against the Steelers, but he should be considered doubtful. The Bengals are targeting a Week 3 return.
Wed, Sep 11, 2013 04:35:00 PM

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) "has a chance" to return in Week 2.

Sunday was Whitworth's first missed game since 2008. Fill-in Anthony Collins managed to hold his own against Julius Peppers and the Bears, but the Bengals have another tough matchup on deck in Clay Matthews' Packers. Whitworth's status is unlikely to be known until Friday at the earliest.
Mon, Sep 9, 2013 03:16:00 PM

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's season opener against the Bears.

Whitworth was listed as doubtful on the injury report Friday. It will be Whitworth's first missed start since 2008. Anthony Collins will fill in at left tackle. He'll be faced with the task of stopping Julius Peppers.
Sat, Sep 7, 2013 12:23:00 PM

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) is listed as doubtful for Week 1 against the Bears.

Sunday's Bengals-Bears game will be played at Soldier Field, and Cincy will be without its top pass protector in a matchup with Julius Peppers and Henry Melton, among others. It's a pretty big concern for the Bengals' passing game.
Fri, Sep 6, 2013 02:06:00 PM

Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) considers himself doubtful for Week 1.

Whitworth has been nursing a knee injury for the entire preseason. His likely absence in Sunday's game against the Bears is a concern with Julius Peppers lurking. Anthony Collins is Whitworth's backup and a drastic downgrade.

The Cincinnati Enquirer considers Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth (knee) "extremely cloudy" for Week 1.

Whitworth missed the entire preseason with a knee injury, and was limited to individual work in Monday's practice. It's a big concern for the left side of a line that will be contending with Bears DE Julius Peppers on Sunday. The Bengals would be forced to go with career swing tackle Anthony Collins in Whitworth's absence. It's worth noting that Whitworth hasn't missed a game since 2008.
