Bengals adapt to life without Atkins

By JOE KAY
AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI (AP) - Geno Atkins was in the Bengals locker room briefly on Wednesday, moving slowly on crutches. He declined to answer questions about his torn knee ligament as he headed home.

Still too painful to discuss.

The Bengals (6-3) will try to maintain their lead in the AFC North without their best defensive lineman. Atkins, an All-Pro tackle last season, leads the team with six sacks.

They'll move other linemen around to try to shore up the middle of the line at Baltimore (3-5) on Sunday. It's going to be that way for the rest of the season as Cincinnati tries to get through some significant losses on defense and win their first division title since 2009.
