Whitworth, Pollak on Bengals' injury report

CINCINNATI -- The biggest addition to the Cincinnati Bengals' injury report Wednesday was linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who went on there after exhibiting concussion-like symptoms on a re-evaluation of an injury he received last Sunday.

It also is worth noting that the Bengals, already down right guard Kevin Zeitler for a few weeks because of a calf injury, were without linemen Andrew Whitworth and Mike Pollak when practice resumed Wednesday ahead of Sunday's Week 3 tilt against Tennessee.

Neither injury appears too serious for now, though. Both players expect to be in good enough shape to play this weekend. Still, they are worth watching. Both were listed as having knee injuries. Pollak has been kind of off and on with his practice regimen since the preseason. Whitworth has been healthy all season but left Sunday's game against the Falcons with a lower left leg bruise. It's unclear right now if that injury is related to the one that caused Whitworth to miss the practice.

The group of non-practice participants also included receiver A.J. Green, who said earlier Wednesday that he was going to wait until Thursday to test his toe.

Aside from those additions, safety Shawn Williams also made the injury report, going in a limited capacity.
