Whitworth: Knee Feels "Tremendous," On Pace For Training Camp

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

In a conference call to season-ticket holders today, left tackle Andrew Whitworth revealed that his recovery following knee surgery is going very well and he is on pace to participate in the teams' July training camp.

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth recently underwent surgery to clean out some scar tissue in his knee. About a week after the surgery, Whitworth stated that he felt "great," even going so far as to say, "I don't feel any different than the first day I played in the NFL."

Highly reassuring words from the stalwart of Cincinnati's offensive line.

And apparently, two weeks later, the good vibes are still going. Earlier today Whitworth participated in a conference call to season-ticket holders, during which he described his knee as feeling "tremendous." This is great news for a Bengals offense that has struggled the past few years running behind Whitworth to the left. Whitworth did, however, admit that he hasn't begun running yet, but reiterated that he will indeed be ready for training camp.

During the same conference call Whitworth also touched on the issue of HGH testing in the NFL. As the Bengals player representative to the NFL Players Association, he remarked that he was in favor of the testing, but also urged caution on the subject.

"It's not like steroids or testosterone. Your hormone levels are always changing. They could be elevated because of an intense workout," Whitworth said. "We all want to get it worked out and have HGH testing as part of the game. I'm a huge advocate. I don't want anybody cheating. That's the most important thing to me."
