Aaron Kampman Returns To Practice, Could Play Vs. Bengals

The chase is better than the catch.

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman returned to practice today, after practicing somewhat on a limited basis last week. It was noted that during the media time of practice, he was with the first unit. In previous weeks, Kampman has been ruled out of the upcoming game early, but they're leaving it open this week. "I'm as hopeful as ever that it's soon," Kampman told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union. "I don't know, but I practiced last week a little bit, getting more involved in all those football activities on the field. We'll see how it goes."

Kampman tore his ACL last year in practice, during non-contact drills. He was expected to be ready for the start of the 2011 NFL season, but suffered a set back after playing in the team's final preseason game against the St. Louis Rams. Kampman has missed the last 12 games, dating back to last year, but looks to get his first action of 2011. The Jaguars defense however, hasn't really missed him. It's unsure what Kampman will bring if he returns Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, but I would advise tempering your enthusiasm. He is less than a full year removed from tearing his ACL.
