Bengals take Mike Pollak off PUP list

7/25/2014

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Bengals announced Friday they officially cleared seven off their injury lists, including offensive lineman Mike Pollak, who had been placed on the active physically unable to perform list earlier this week.

With the clearances, all are able to participate in training camp practices.

The other six who were named had technically been cleared Thursday. Each participated in the opening day workouts. Those six included receiver Colin Lockett, punter Kevin Huber, cornerback Leon Hall, left guard Leon Hall, cornerback Onterio McCalebb and defensive end Christo Bilukidi. McCalebb and Bilukidi were part of the active non-football injury list, while the others were on the active PUP list.

Pollak's return could mean split snaps at center for rookie Russell Bodine, who received his share of first-team reps there Thursday. Pollak has experience playing both center and guard, but is expected to compete with Bodine for starting opportunities at center. With Boling healthy enough to practice after ACL surgery on New Year's Eve, Pollak's reps at guard likely will be diminished.

As the Bengals resume practice at 3 p.m. ET, here's where the rest of their PUP and non-football injury lists stand:

DT Geno Atkins (knee)

LB Marquis Flowers (hamstring)

CB Leon Hall (Achilles)

DT Zach Minter (back)

DT Devon Still (back)

WR Ryan Whalen (hamstring)

TE Jermaine Gresham (back)
