Ninkovich was on the field for 46 of 68 defensive snaps in Sunday's 35-17 win over the Bengals, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

After seeing 24 snaps in Week 5, Ninkovich saw an increase in playing time in his second game back from a four-game suspension, recording four tackles in the process. Ninkovich is an option in deeper IDP formats, based on the assumption that he'll remain a key cog in the Patriots' D-line rotation going forward.
