Whitworth, who missed the Bengals’ season-opening loss at Chicago with a knee injury, was also limited on Thursday and Friday.
“He’s had a good week of preparation, work,” Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Saturday, according to the club’s website. “He feels good physically. Very good physically. He’s been proving to me he feels very good physically.”
While Whitworth’s status is murky, the Bengals have clarity throughout the rest of their injury report. Outside linebacker Vontaze Burfict (thigh) put in a full practice for a second straight day and is probable on the injury report. On the other side of the ledger, reserve cornerback Brandon Ghee (concussion) and backup guard Mike Pollak (knee) are listed as out, with safety Jeromy Miles (hamstring) doubtful.
