Bengals head coach officially rules out two offensive line starters for game against Bills

A Cincinnati offensive line that was so consistent in November and December will have a different look when the Bengals visit the Buffalo Bills for a divisional playoff game Sunday. Cincinnati Bengals will be without two of their starting offensive linemen Sunday. Bengals left tackle Jonah Williams and right guard Alex Cappa have both been ruled out for the game against the Bills Sunday. Williams has been out all week with a dislocated knee cap and Cappa has been out with a sprained ankle. Williams was injured during the Bengals wild card game against the Ravens Sunday. Cappa was injured during the regular season finale game against the Ravens. The Bengals hope it will be a smooth transition. Protecting quarterback Joe Burrow is critical in Cincinnati’s pass-heavy offense. Hakeem Adeniji, who struggled in pass protection during the postseason last year, has started at right tackle since La’el Collins went down. Collins suffered a torn ACL and MCL during the Week 16 game against the New England Patriots and has been ruled out for the rest of the season, a source confirmed to WLWT’s Olivia Ray. Max Scharping, who was claimed off waivers from Houston before the season , has slotted in for Cappa at right guard. Jackson Carman, who was a starter off and on during his rookie year, has been pushed into service at left tackle.
