It was one of those, what else could go wrong moments when offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth was concussed during practice on Wednesday. He sat on Thursday undergoing concussion protocols, alongside linebacker James Harrison and defensive end Carlos Dunlap.
One day later, good news saturates our victimized hearts.
According to beat writers attending practice on Friday, all three weren't just practicing, they were full participation. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told reporters on Friday that offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth was "progressing" after having completed the concussion protocol.
This is better news than what was forecasted about this time on Thursday when news surfaced about Whitworth's injury. Concern was building with Carlos Dunlap, who has suffered a second concussion in the past six months.
All three players that underwent concussion protocols earlier this week are listed as questionable. Joining them is Kevin Zeitler, who still isn't right after missing the last four games with a foot injury against the Baltimore Ravens.
