    Bengals middle linebacker Rey Maualuga is sitting out of practice with a knee sprain. Naturally that would mean backup middle linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy would replace him, being second on the depth chart and all. However, according to observers at Sunday's practice, Vontaze Burfict is lining up with the first-team defense as the middle linebacker during 11-on-11 sessions. If true, that could mean that Burfict possibly jumped Muckelroy on the depth chart, securing a spot on the 53-man roster. Though it could be an exploratory action by the coaching staff following a solid performance against the Jets on Friday.
