First-Team LBs feature A.J. Hawk; Eric Winston also runs with 1s

With several Bengals sitting out from OTAs due to injury, backups are getting a chance to run with the starters.

Winston was re-signed this offseason after signing a one-year deal midway through the 2014 season. Even though he's starting now, he still has a lot of work to do just to earn a roster spot with Jake fisher and Cedric Ogbuehi now in Cincinnati.
