Kevin Zeitler sits during Friday's practice

The second-year offensive guard appears likely to miss this weekend against the San Diego Chargers with a bum foot.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive guard Kevin Zeitler sat during Friday's practice, marking the third session this week for Zeitler as he recovers from a foot injury that he suffered against the Baltimore Ravens. It appears that unless something miraculous happens from now until Sunday's 4:25 p.m. kickoff, backup offensive guard Mike Pollak will get his second start of the season at right guard.

On the first play of the fourth quarter against the Ravens, Zeitler had his leg rolled up on. He stayed in the game but has missed every practice since, as well as Cincinnati's 41-20 win over the Cleveland Browns in week 11.


It appears that Zeitler is the only question mark (we wouldn't be surprised if he's declared out when the team releases their final injury report Friday afternoon). Linebacker Michael Boley was limited on Wednesday and Thursday, while punter Kevin Huber missed Wednesday before returning in a limited capacity on Thursday.
