Sims, Loper out against Bengals
CINCINNATI Linebacker Ernie Sims (hamstring) was hoping to make it back on the field today, but he is one of the inactives for todays game against the Bengals. Its the fourth straight game he has missed. Again, rookie DeAndre Levy will start at outside linebacker.
Defensive end Dewayne White (toe) is back in action after missing two games, but he wont start. Cliff Avril will start at right end and Andre Fluellen will start at left end.
Guard Daniel Loper (back) is out so Dylan Gandy will start at right guard.
Other inactives are: WR Eric Fowler (knee), S Kalvin Pearson (hamstring), FB Terrelle Smith, T Ephraim Salaam and DT Landon Cohen. Drew Stanton is the third quarterback.
