Rookie DE Carlos Dunlap is a player to watch in the second half of the season. Dunlap notched his first career sack in the Week 10 loss at Indianapolis and could be in line for more playing time down the stretch. The 6-6 277-pound Dunlap has ideal size and athleticism for the position, but he is only 21 years old. "Learning how to practice is the biggest thing with Carlos, and what it takes to be a pro," head coach Marvin Lewis said leading up to Week 11. More playing time could be available in part because of injuries to DE Jonathan Fanene (out for the season with a hamstring injury) and DRE Antwan Odom (wrist). The Bengals have to think about the future at defensive end with Odom and Robert Geathers having largely disappointing seasons and the Bengals' pass rush not doing enough all season long.
