Bengals OT Whitworth out for Sunday

The SportsXchange

Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth is out for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Whitworth, a Pro Bowler, was previously listed as doubtful as he is coming off knee surgery. He did not practice during the week.

He will miss his first start in more than four seasons, ending a consecutive streak of 67 starts.

Defensive tackle Domata Peko will take over as the team leader in consecutive starts with 52 and defensive end Michael Johnson will play in his team-high 68th straight game.

Anthony Collins, a sixth-year player out of Kansas, will start in place of Whitworth. He also filled in for Whitworth in the preseason. He played five games last season. It is Collins' first start since 2011.
