Andrew Whitworth doesn't mind moving.

The Pro Bowl left tackle got shifted inside the Bengals line when left guard Clint Boling tore a knee ligament during a 17-10 win in San Diego on Sunday. Whitworth might just stay at the guard spot when the Bengals (8-4) host the Indianapolis Colts (8-4) on Sunday.

It's a move that Whitworth embraces. He played guard earlier in his career. Anthony Collins, who is a tackle, would start next to him.

The line shuffling didn't seem to bother the Bengals, who rushed for 164 yards against the Chargers.

The Bengals aren't sure whether they'll have right guard Kevin Zeitler, who missed the last two games with an injured right foot. He was held out of practice on Wednesday.
