Andre Smith sprains ankle; Leaves game


Nov 10, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Cincinnati Bengals tackle Andre Smith (71) in action against the Baltimore Ravens at M

The last thing the Cincinnati Bengals can afford to lose now is another offensive lineman, and there’s no doubt they’re holding their breaths regarding the status of offensive tackle Andre Smith.

If Smith were to miss next week’s game vs. the Baltimore Ravens, the line would probably be exactly what it is right now with Whit and Collins at tackle and Kevin Zeitler and Mike Pollak at guard.

The Bengals have already lost rookie tight end Tyler Eifert to a stinger injury.
