Impact: After sitting out Wednesday's practice with the illness, Dunlap returned to the field the next two days to put his status for the season opener on sturdy ground. He'll line up as a starter at defensive end and should be one of the Bengals' top pass rushers this season.

News: Dunlap (illness) missed Wednesday's practice, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Dunlap was seen leaving Paul Brown Stadium just prior to the beginning of Wednesday's on-field work. He was virtually the sole source of pass rush for the Bengals last season, totaling eight sacks on a defense that was ranked last in the league in pressuring the quarterback. The veteran defensive end is not expected to be in danger of missing Sunday's road opener at Oakland, where Dunlap is expected to play a vital role in containing the emerging Derek Carr.
