Atkins had a sack in the Bengals' first-round playoff loss to the Steelers, capping off a big rebound season.

EDGE Analysis

In addition to the playoff sack, Atkins had 11 sacks in the regular season, second only to his big breakout season in 2012 where he had 12.5 sacks. The Bengals are still well-equipped to have a great pass rush in 2016, with Atkins and Carlos Dunlap leading the way.

Atkins had a sack that also forced a fumble in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Atkins wasn't all the way back to his dominating form in 2014 after suffering an ACL tear in 2013, but if Sunday is any indication, he might be in line for a bigger year.

Atkins was a rare bright spot in Monday's preseason debacle against the Bucs, recording a sack and four pressures in 24 snaps.

EDGE Analysis

Atkins returned from a torn ACL last season but wasn't his dominant self. Now with a full season separating him from his recovery, there's more reason to hope that he can create more of a pass rush, something the Bengals desperately need.

Atkins has been diagnosed with a slight hyperextension of his right knee, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

The source says the injury is a minor one, which is welcome news considering the bleaker alternatives involving Atkins' surgically repaired knee. With a few extra days to heal before Cincinnati's next game Nov. 16 against New Orleans, Atkins may not have to miss any time.

Atkins left Thursday's game against the Browns with an injury to his surgically-repaired right knee, according to CBS Sports' Tracy Wolfson.

Atkins is only 12 months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL, and while he hasn't quite been his usual self this season, he's played in each of Cincinnati's nine games. Devon Still and Brandon Thompson figure to play added snaps in Atkins' absence.

Atkins (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

Atkins alleviated any concerns he would suit up Sunday by taking part in Thursday's practice in a full capacity. He'll look to disrupt the Falcons' ground game while also supplying some pressure on quarterback Matt Ryan.

Atkins (feet, probable) practiced fully Friday, the Bengals' official site reports.

Atkins (feet) practiced in a limited fashion Thursday, ESPN.com reports.

More on Atkins' status Friday, but his return to practice, albeit in a limited fashion, bodes well for the defensive tackle's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Falcons.

Atkins (feet) sat out Wednesday's practice, the Bengals' official site reports.

The report suggests that the signs point to Atkins playing Sunday against the Falcons, though some practice participation Thursday on his part would provide reassurance on that front.

Geno Atkins, who left Sunday's game against the Ravens on a cart, was likely just fatigued, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner reports.

Fatigue doesn't usually require a cart, but Atkins was presumably dehydrated, so the Bengals may have just been playing things safe. While it may be that he isn't yet back to full strength after last season's torn ACL and a limited preseason, Atkins will likely be able to play next week against the Falcons.
