Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Andre Smith was one of several offensive linemen that didn't participate during Tuesday's practice, which kicked off the third phase of the team's offseason training program. Unlike Andrew Whitworth and Trevor Robinson, who are rehabilitating various injuries, Smith was simply not in Cincinnati with the rest of the team.
Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told reporters that Smith "has to deal with some stuff he has to take care of".
Andre Smith not at first OTA workout. Lewis said he "has to deal with some stuff he has to take care of". Not conditioning though— Joe Reedy (@joereedy) May 21, 2013
The Bengals had a mishmash of players on the first-team unit, with Anthony Collins filling in at right tackle, Tanner Hawkinson replacing Andrew Whitworth at left tackle and free agent acquisition Mike Pollak subbing for Clint Boling. Dennis Roland didn't participate on Tuesday.
The Bengals will resume OTA practices on Wednesday and Thursday before picking it up against next week.
