A Handful Of Bengals Players Cleared For Monday's Practice

Rob Carr

We already knew that Andre Smith was cleared to practice on Monday, but a couple of other players received some good news as well.

Obviously learning for the Antonio Bryant disaster from 2010, the Bengals have wisely taken it slow with a handful of players at the commencement of this year's Training Camp. Basically, when the team sat a handful of players out, it placed them on the PUP List. When they are ready to attend practice, it takes them off of that list and makes them ineligible to return to it.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Monday that offensive tackle Andre Smith, wide receiver Brandon Tate, and long-snapper Bryce Davis have been activated from their respective injury lists.

Smith was on the team's Active/Non-Football Injury list at the start of training camp with a calf. He tweeted late on Sunday that he had finally been cleared to practice. Tate was on the team's Active/PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list with a hamstring and Davis was listed on the team's Active/Non-Football Illness list.

Tate will be coming back to a slew of competition at kick returner, though we're not sure how serious of a hole he's actually in from the missed time. A group of players have been taking snaps at punt and kick returner in his absence, though he still appears to be the favorite for those jobs.
