One of the newest members of the Bengals won’t be playing for the Bengals in 2012.
A league source tells PFT that the coaching staff has told the team that guard Travelle Wharton is out for the year, due to a knee injury suffered Friday night in the team’s preseason opener.
As Gantt pointed out this morning, it was feared that Wharton would be lost for the year.
Wharton signed a three-year contract with the Bengals after being cut by the Panthers in March. He has a base salary that shoots from $825,000 in 2012 to $2.675 million in 2013.
