Pacman Jones Returns to Practice for the Bengals

The Bengals have cleared Cornerback Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones to finally return to practice today.  After injuring his neck in week 7 of 2010, Pacman’s neck issues have healed fully. Today, he took part in a full-contact practice with the rest of the team. He had been doing individual physical workouts, but was only cleared by doctors for full-contact last week.

He had two neck surgeries in the offseason and has been on the Physically Unable to Perform List since the beginning of the season.

Now, Pacman returns to one of the best defenses in the league. The team has a three-week roster exemption to decide if they want to activate Pacman onto the 53-man roster and waive someone else.

If Pacman can revive the ability that he flashed in 2010, he will likely take the third cornerback spot from Kelly Jennings, moving Morgan Trent further down the depth chart.

In only 5 games with the Bengals last year, Pacman recorded 1 interception, 1 forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, one defensive touchdown, and 13 tackles.
