News: The Bengals expect cornerback Leon Hall to be ready for the start of training camp and defensive tackle Geno Atkins to join them for full workouts sometime later. Impact: Hall and Atkins are their two biggest questions heading into camp. Both are starters who mean a lot to a defense that ranked third in the NFL last season. Atkins tore a knee ligament Oct. 31. Coach Marvin Lewis says Atkins won't be cleared to practice at the outset, but he expects him to be back sometime during camp. (STATS, 1:46pm)

News: Atkins (knee) will remain on the Bengals' PUP list and sit a few days before taking the field during training camp, the team's official website reports. Impact: Atkins is recovering from the torn ACL he suffered in October. Although Atkins is pushing to be allowed to practice from Day 1, coach Marvin Lewis is expected to exercise caution and hold his defensive stud out for the first few days of camp. Nonetheless, it's appears fairly certain that he will be good to go by the time Week 1 of the regular season kicks off. When he returns, Atkins represents one of the league's premier defensive forces and an elite sack option among IDP interior linemen.(RotoWire, )
