CINCINNATI (AP) — Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones was activated off an injury list on Friday, making him eligible for the Cincinnati Bengals’ game in Seattle.
Jones has been sidelined for approximately a year by a bulging disc in his neck that required two surgical procedures. He opened the season on an injury list, and was cleared to resume practice this week. He takes the roster spot of running back Cedric Benson, who is suspended for the game Sunday in Seattle because he violated the NFL’s conduct policy.
Jones was listed as questionable to play on Sunday, along with cornerback Morgan Trent, who has an ankle injury. Jones was the Bengals’ No. 3 cornerback last season. Starting cornerback Nate Clements was listed as probable for Seattle with a sore knee.
