CINCINNATI - Bengals offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth was selected to his first Pro Bowl Tuesday, joining three others from the team to represent the AFC.
A seven-year veteran offensive tackle, Whitworth was a first alternate in last month's Pro Bowl voting and will replace Denver's injured Ryan Clady. Whitworth's been on the field for every game since 2009, and his streak of 67 consecutive starts, including the postseason, is the longest among active players on the team.
Whitworth will join wide receiver A.J. Green, defensive tackle Geno Atkins and tight end Jermaine Gresham on the AFC roster.
