When Cincinnati's starting left guard Travelle Wharton suffered a season-ending knee injury during the Bengals third preseason snap of the year, it caused a little chaos. Though one could defined it as good chaos; not reveling in the past that can't be changed, rather the future on what can be accomplished. Granted. Wharton's loss appears to hurt the offensive line on the surface, but there are two young offensive guards that are foaming at the mouth for the opportunity. And who's to say that they won't thrive?

Though offensive coordinator Jay Gruden is learning how Clint Boling will be integrated into the offensive line, Bengals offensive line captain Andrew Whitworth is giving him the seal of approval, at least for the opportunity.

"Clint's a really smart guy and he knows what he's doing. You don't have to worry about the mental part of the game. He handles that pretty well," said left tackle Andrew Whitworth. "He's ready for his opportunity. He's shown that in this training camp to this point. He was kind of one of those people knocking on the door. 'Man, this guy is on the verge taking somebody's spot. He's playing well.' You hate the way it happened. He's getting an opportunity and he's got to make the most of it."
