Bengals could have Odom back

Posted by Chris Brown on November 16, 2010 – 10:13 am

The Cincinnati Bengals despite putting three players on injured reserve Monday, could have their best pass rusher back on the field Sunday against the Bills.

Antwan Odom has just completed serving four games for violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. He sustained a knee injury heading into the suspension that was to keep him out 2-3 weeks. The Bengals, much like the Bills did with Shawn Nelson, got a one week roster exemption for Odom, but they could activate him at any time.

Cincinnati likely wants to see how Odom looks in practice, which he can do with teammates this week. They’ll have until Saturday at 4 pm to add him to their 53-man roster for Sunday’s game.

Whether Odom is truly back to the form that saw him rack up 8 sacks in just six games last season remains to be seen. A ruptured Achilles cost him the last 10 games of the season in 2009, and it’s difficult for speed players to regain their burst after an injury like that.
