The Cincinnati Bengals offensive line performed admirably against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, allowing just 2 sacks the vaunted Bears pass-rush that featured Julius Peppers, who was matched-up against backup tackle Anthony Collins. Despite not having started a game since 2011, Collins shut-down Peppers, and knew he was capable of doing so.

He was filling in for Pro Bowler Andrew Whitworth, who’s still in the process of rehabbing his ailing knee that he had surgery performed on this offseason, and despite the procedure being done in the beginning of the year, it still has yet to fully heal, leaving many wondering when, or if he’ll be able to take the field this year.

The Bengals are notorious for not fully disclosing the full-extent of player injuries, and we’ve seen several players (Keith Rivers, Rich Braham) have early-season injuries that the Bengals made it appear they would be able to come back from, only to watch them miss the entire season.
