Andre Smith tweets that he's cleared to practice

Smith has missed four practices and the team's entire offseason training program dealing with personal issues and an injured calf.

After missing four practices because he's on the team's Active/Non-Football Injury list, Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Andre Smith sent a tweet Sunday evening that he's been cleared to practice.

Smith was placed on the NFI list at the start of training camp with a calf injury, missing four sessions. The starting right tackle told reporters on Sunday that he feels "1,000 percent" and felt that he could have practiced with the team on Thursday, but said that decision isn't his call. Anthony Collins has been filling in.

Smith signed a three-year deal worth $18 million in April and then subsequently missed the team's offseason training program due to a personal matter. He was fined for missing the team's mandatory minicamp.

The team's next practice starts at 3 p.m. on Monday before the players are given their first day off on Tuesday.
