The Bengals announced Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been cleared to return to practice.

Burfict hasn't played in a game since October 26, 2014, and spent the first six weeks of the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

He has spent the time away from the field rehabbing his knee after undergoing major surgery in January.

Burfict returning to practice on Thursday does not mean he will play Sunday in Pittsburgh.

The Bengals now have a 21-day window to active Burfict.
