One week into the preseason and the Cincinnati Bengals face a lot of tough questions.
The injury bug bit the Bengals hard in Week 1. Starting left guard Travelle Wharton is done for the year, while Carlos Dunlap is likely to miss the season opener. With a number of other starters banged up, the Bengals are already preparing for the worst.
It's not all doom and gloom however, with the team's rookies and younger players putting on impressive displays in Week 1 as they compete for a roster spot.
The injuries may have forced the Bengals to look to their youth faster than they had hoped, but they have given us great insight into the both the good and bad realities of the 2012 Bengals roster.
