Bengals LT Whitworth inactive with knee injury

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Miami Dolphins because of a right knee injury and will be replaced by Anthony Collins.

Whitworth, who had been questionable, was hurt in Sunday's victory over the New York Jets. Bengals backup linebacker Michael Boley is inactive because of a hamstring injury. Cornerback Jamar Taylor, the Dolphins' second-round draft pick, is active for only the fourth time this season. Rishard Matthews will make his first start of the year at receiver in place of Brandon Gibson, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last week.

Dolphins right tackle Jonathan Martin, sidelined because of emotional issues, is inactive and will be replaced by Tyson Clabo.
