The Cincinnati Bengals kicked off practice on Wednesday with nearly a full compliment of players. Defensive tackle Pat Sims is on the field practicing for the first time this year, finally ditching the Physically Unable to Perform label. The team has three weeks before an ultimate decision is required, before he is placed on the 53-man roster, released or placed on an season-ending injury list.
Starting center Jeff Faine is also practicing this week, after missing the second half against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a hamstring.
However wide receiver Marvin Jones isn't. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said that Marvin Jones' chances to play this weekend are slim.
