After practice today, Cincinnati Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis said that All-Pro receiver A.J. Green and Pro Bowl left tackle Andrew Whitworth could return to practice later this week, but also said he won’t rush them back into games.

Whitworth remains out for time being as he continues to work his way back into game shape after offseason knee surgery. and starting left guard Clint Boling (knee) have also missed time.

Rookie offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson is out indefinitely, and rookie offensive tackle Reid Fragel is battling a knee injury. 

In order to help with all of the injuries on the offensive line, the Bengals signed Otis Hudson today, who almost become an interior designer before re-joining the Bengals:

"I was in the process of trying to be an interior designer. I just decided to put that on the back burner now and focus on football. I’m not ready to do that at all. I thought I was, but I’m not. I was just trying to find myself in the whole process. To see if football was really for me. I think I’m going to play for a while and worry about after football when that time comes."
