The team announced Saturday they have activated the tackling maven to the active roster from the PUP list.
Activating Burfict indicates the Bengals like those chances as well. He'll test out his surgically repaired knee prior to game time.
Burfict, 25, played just five games in 2014 and underwent microfrature surgery, often a brutal surgery to return from. After 10 months of rehab, Burfict appears ready to get back on the field. We expect the Bengals to ease the fourth-year pro back into the rotation.
