Andre Smith skipping OTA’s due to a personal reason

According to Bengals.com, offensive tackle Andre Smith is skipping out on the Bengals organized team activities due to a personal reason.

Right tackle Andre Smith, who has told the club he’s dealing with personal issues according to head coach Marvin Lewis, wasn’t here again and has missed all seven OTAs. Veteran Anthony Collins has been getting the bulk of his snaps with the first group while fifth-rounde Tanner Hawkinson continues to get most of the snaps at left tackle for the rehabbing Andrew Whitworth.

Smith recently signed an extension to continue his career in Cincinnati.  We certainly hope all is well with Andre.
