News: The Bengals cleared Atkins to rejoin practice on Wednesday, completing his comeback from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Impact: Atkins hurt his knee during a game Oct. 31 at Miami and had hoped to be ready for the start of training camp last Thursday, but coach Marvin Lewis wanted to be cautious. Atkins was limited to drills on a side field for the first week. Atkins was a 2012 All-Pro and a two-time Pro Bowl selection. He had 12 1-2 sacks in 2012, the most by an NFL interior lineman, and led the team with six sacks when he was hurt last season.(STATS, 11:21am)

News: Atkins has been activated from the PUP list in advance of Wednesday's practice, the Bengals' official site reports. Impact: Expect Atkins, who is bouncing back from an ACL tear that he sustained on Oct. 31 last year, to be worked back in gradually, in both practice and in preseason action, with an eye toward preparing him for the Bengals' regular season opener on Sept. 7. Prior to suffering his season-ending injury last season, Atkins had recorded 20 tackles and six sacks in nine games. When healthy, he's a key cog in the Bengals' team D and a serviceable IDP out of the DL slot as well.(RotoWire, )

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, )
