UPDATE: 11:45 am
Whitworth will not play Sunday vs the Bears:
"He dressed in his 77 jersey and carried his helmet after a few weeks of not doing either. Then he promptly took off the jersey and went to the side with the rehab group. Who knows what he did after the media window ended, but if he didn’t work Friday then that makes it all but official he won’t play Sunday, ending the club’s longest starting streak at 67 games."
The Pro Bowl left tackle is still recovering from offseason knee surgery, and having him to go against the likes of Julius Peppers and the rest of the Bears’ pass-rushers would have been very beneficial going into Week 1, but he’s not going to play if he doesn’t at least get one practice in this week, and missing today’s session would mean he’s missed the last three weeks of practice.
