Cincinnati Bengals coach Sam Wyche, saying he was trying to comply with a league directive when he barred a woman from the Bengals' locker room Monday night, will keep his players in uniform for 20 minutes after this week's game to adhere to league policy.

While reiterating his belief that players shouldn't be interviewed in the nude by women, Wyche said he would go out of his way to ensure that female reporters will have equal access to his players.
