Guard Alex Cappa is one-third of the major offensive line overhaul the Cincinnati Bengals made in free agency this offseason.
And it will be a few weeks before Cappa’s able to get in front of Joe Burrow during live work.
As Zac Taylor told reporters on Tuesday, Cappa’s dealing with a minor core injury that will sideline him for a few weeks.
With Cappa out, Hakeem Adeniji lined up at right guard and Jackson Carman was in at left guard alongside the team’s other two new additions, center Ted Karras and right tackle La’el Collins.

As of this writing, this isn’t a major concern for Cappa and the Bengals, as it sounds like he’ll be ready in time for the start of training camp.
Cappa is, by the way, a guy who has played with a broken arm and tried to stay in a game with a broken leg.
Or in other words, he’s the sort of glass-eater Frank Pollack’s been looking for in Cincinnati.
