The Cincinnati Bengals have activated Pro Bowl defensive tackle Geno Atkins from the physically unable to perform list.
Atkins tore his anterior cruciate ligament last year.
The Bengals are hoping to get Atkins back in time for their season-opener against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Bengals also activated rookie linebacker Marquis Flowers.
He had been sidelined with a hamstring injury.
