Along with Andre Smith sitting on Sunday, offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth and Clint Boling are resting on Sunday. Boling was quietly replaced on Saturday by Mike Pollak, who joined the first-team offense late during practice. Whitworth is still recovering from an offseason procedure and the team most likely wants to ease him back into routine.
Not to mention it gives the younger players an opportunity for more snaps.

Both had off-season surgery and indications are Lewis taking it easy early— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) July 28, 2013
