News: Atkins is expected to start Sunday night's preseason game against the Cardinals, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Impact: Atkins was rested during Friday's practice, but it appears as though the stage is set for Atkins -- who is bouncing back from the torn ACL that he suffered last October -- to play in a few series during Sunday's contest.(RotoWire, )

News: Atkins' (knee) status for Sunday's third preseason game is yet to be determined, although he is fully expected to play in the Bengals' regular season opener Sept. 7 versus the Ravens. Impact: Atkins is yet to play since tearing his ACL last October, but the defensive tackle has been practicing, albeit in an unknown capacity beyond individual drills, since coming off Cincinnati's PUP list July 30. As one of the league's elite defensive linemen, Atkins' return has been handled carefully to ensure he's ready to go once the results matter. However, it could be worthwhile for Atkins to gain game experience during the preseason, so he might be involved in the Bengals' third preseason contest Sunday. Expect his status to be updated as the week unfolds.(RotoWire, )
