It looks like the Cincinnati Bengals will be without starting right guard Kevin Zeitler after he didn’t practice today, meaning he’s missed every practice this week and is essentially “out” for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns:
Crocker, Zeitler not practicing for @Bengals Friday

Zeitler sounds like he needs a game off, as his play has dropped-off significantly this year after having a great rookie season. He was spotted in a walking boot Monday, despite not having left the game Sunday vs the Baltimore Ravens. Perhaps he aggravated a previous foot injury that’s been hindering him this year. Either way, Trevor Robinson or Mike Pollak are likely to start in his place Sunday if he can’t go. The Bengals could also play offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth at guard and bring in Anthony Collins to play his left tackle spot.
