No setbacks on Geno Atkins and Leon Hall rehabilitation

Jamie Sabau

Two of Cincinnati's best defensive players, who missed the second half of the season in 2013, appear to be on schedule for their eventual training camp return.

Cincinnati Bengals' defensive leaders Leon Hall and Geno Atkins face two of the more complicated offseason rehabilitation programs. And according to Bengals.com, both players are on schedule (or at the very least, haven't had any setbacks).

So far, so good on the rehabbing front. Word is that there have been no setbacks for either player. It’s also early as fingers cross.

Hall suffered an Achilles tear against the Detroit lions on Oct. 20 and Geno Atkins went down with an ACL tear 11 days later against Miami. This is the second Achilles tear for Hall in three years; the first didn't cause Hall to miss any time in 2012, but he was a little rusty early before an epic four-game stretch to close out that season.

Granted, the next man up philosophy limited the impact of losing both players, but if there were a list of the most irreplaceable, that would be it. You just don't replace a Leon Hall or Geno Atkins late in the season.

It's still iffy if they'll be ready by the start of training camp, but don't exclude them from possibly participating either. In other words, we're projecting the Physically Unable to Perform list either.
