Cincinnati Bengals starting SAM backer Emmanuel Lamur is inactive for tonight’s game against the Denver Broncos with a hamstring injury.

Lamur, who had started 13 of 14 games this season, was listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report. Rookie Marquis Flowers will make his first career start in Lamur’s place.

Veteran tackle Eric Winston, who signed with the Bengals on Dec. 2, is expected to make his first start with the team at right tackle with Clint Boling moving back to his regular spot at left guard. Boling had started the last two games at right tackle after Andre Smith suffered a season-ending triceps injury at Houston.

The other Bengals inactives are quarterback AJ McCarron, cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris, tackle Tanner Hawkinson, defensive tackle Devon Still and wide receivers James Wright and Greg Little.
