The Cincinnati Bengals activated defensive tackle Geno Atkins off the physically unable to perform list Wednesday.
Atkins had surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee last season and the team was easing him back into action.
Atkins tore the ACL in Week 9 last season, ending his campaign. The Georgia product had six sacks and 20 tackles after leading all interior lineman the year prior with 12 1/2 sacks while earning his second Pro Bowl selection.
The Bengals also activated linebacker Marquis Flowers off the PUP list. Flowers was a sixth-round pick out of the University of Arizona.
