Starting center Kyle Cook returned to practice today for the first time since suffering a serious ankle injury in the Bengals’ third preseason game. He’s been on the IR since then, but did get designated to return tag, allowing him to return this year. Because he is now practicing, there will be a three week period in which the Bengals can bring him to the active roster and cut another player.

The Chargers had three of their top defensive players either not practice, or be limited in practice.

All-Pro free safety Eric Weddle was able to take to the practice field in limited fashion despite suffering from a concussion on Sunday. His status for for this week’s game will likely remain a mystery until gameday.

Starting strong safety Bigby will reportedly miss 3-5 weeks with his groin injury.

It’s worth noting that Weddle, Bigby, and LB Donald Butler are first, second and third on San Diego’s roster in tackles.
