CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Bengals activated linebacker Vontaze Burfict from the Physically Unable to Perform List on Saturday.

Wide receiver Greg Little was released from the team to make room on the 53-man roster, the Bengals announced. 

Burfict was the leading tackler for Cincinnati during the 2012 and 2013 seasons. The fourth-year linebacker had knee surgery after playing in the first five games of last season.

Burfict is now eligible for his first action of the season, which could come as early as Sunday against Pittsburgh.
