Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth returned to practice today but is still a doubt to take to the field for the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Whitworth suffered concussion on Wednesday and was listed as taking a full part in the 90 minute session today, however it remains unclear as to whether he will be passed fit to start against the Vikings in Ohio.

Defensive end Carlos Dunlap and linebacker James Harrison will also be evaluated before the game.

“Everybody’s progressing. It’s a lot better step than not practicing. Whatever the protocol is will be followed,” coach Marvin Lewis said on Friday.

Whitworth started his last two games before his injury out of position as a left, but will be needed on Sunday as the Bengals continue their push for the play-offs with just two games of the regular season remaining.

Cornerback Terence Newman is expected to miss the game with a knee injury, while Kevin Zeitler and defensive tackle Devon Still are still major doubts.

Jermaine Gresham should be available.
