The Bengals may be getting Vontaze Burfict back just in time for him to suit up Sunday vs. the Falcons. The Pro bowl linebacker suffered a concussion during Sunday's win over the Ravens. That led to him missing Wednesday and Thursday's practices.
However, Burfict was able to suit up Friday, but it's still unclear as to how much he practiced.
Burfict, Green, Atkins all participating in practice. Newman (groin) was only one of major injuries working on side.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) September 12, 2014
Burfict looks full go but let's see what injury report says— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) September 12, 2014
This doesn't mean Burfict has necessarily been cleared to return to game action, but it is a good sign he has. As for Terence Newman being held out, it's unclear as to how long this groin issue has affected him. It looks like it popped up during practice this week.
