The Bengals got mostly good news on the injury front Monday after several players suffered injuries last week.

The Bengals hit the field Monday for the first practice session of the final week of training camp.

Making his way back onto the field was backup quarterback AJ McCarron. He missed most of last week, including Friday's preseason opener, while dealing with an injury that is still unclear as to what it actually was.

Offensive tackle Jake Fisher was back at practice after missing Friday's game with an undisclosed injury. He and McCarron were able to go through individual drills, but were held out once 11-on-11 work began, so it's clear there's something still bothering them.

Also practicing Monday were running backs Cedric Peerman and Rex Burkhead, both of whom exited Friday's preseason opener vs. the Giants with injuries. Burkhead left with a neck injury while Peerman left with what appeared to be a significant knee injury. It looks as though neither were serious if they're already practicing just three days later.

Safety Shawn Williams was present after suffering a hand injury Friday that he was able to play through. Offensive tackle Andre Smith dressed but worked on the exercise bike after missing Friday's game with an unknown injury.

Unfortunately, cornerback Darqueze Dennard was unable to practice Monday, but was on the rehab field working. Dennard left Friday's game with a groin injury that doesn't appear too serious, though time will tell.

Cornerback Brandon Ghee (hamstring) joined the rehab field "regulars", tackle Cedric Ogbuehi (PUP), linebacker Vontaze Burfict (PUP) and linebacker Sean Porter (PUP).
