Bengals Defensive End Returns To Practice In Full

The Cincinnati Bengals have been arguably the hottest team in the AFC over the past few months, blowing past the Baltimore Ravens for a lead in the AFC North, and now, they'll approach the playoffs looking to take in one step further than 2021, when they reached the third Super Bowl in franchise history.

Now, they seem to be getting completely healthy, with players missing time over recent weeks, but defensive end Sam Hubbard practiced in full for the first time since the Week 16 win over New England, and this team is looking like one that will be tough to stop heading into the playoffs.

In a great year in 2022, Hubbard has racked up 57 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 3 passes deflected at the line, and if he can stay healthy along with Hendrickson, Reader and the rest of this defensive line, they'll be a team no one wants to face.
