Bengals Lose LG Travelle Wharton for the Season

Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga and left end Carlos Dunlap suffered right knee sprains in the opening minutes of the preseason Friday night at Paul Brown Stadium and Maualuga said he’ll miss only a couple of days of practice, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

“I got good news from the trainer,” Maualuga said after the 17-6 victory over the Jets. “Tomorrow we’ve got off and I could be back Sunday for practice.”

Dunlap had no comment and there is no time frame, but a knee sprain usually takes a couple of weeks depending on the severity.

But the news looked devastating for left guard Travelle Wharton, the first one to go down on Cincinnati’s third offensive play. Wharton, who signed for $3 million per his three years back in March, grimly stood on crutches outside the MRI room at PBS at halftime and the fear is he has suffered a season-ending right knee injury
