Kirkpatrick is healthy after fracturing his hand in May, Jeff Wallner of United Press International reports. Kirkpatrick's fracture was never considered very serious. He was already back on the field in a limited capacity for June's minicamp and shouldn't have any restrictions when training camp opens July 27.
Kirkpatrick has reportedly broken his right hand, Geoff Hobson of the team's official site reports. The fracture doesn't appear to be too serious. Kirkpatrick reportedly will be back within two weeks and a full go by training camp. In the meantime, Josh Shaw and Darqueze Dennard are expected to take over for Kirkpatrick.
Kirkpatrick was held out of practice Tuesday due to a wrist injury, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Kirkpatrick's wrist injury is not believed to be too serious. His absence appears to be more of a precautionary decision than anything else at this point.
Kirkpatrick re-signed with the Bengals on Thursday, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com reports. Kirkpatrick started 14 games for the Bengals in 2016, recording 10 passes defensed -- including three interceptions -- and 46 tackles in 15 games played. He'll likely claim one of the Bengals' starting corner positions again in 2017.
Kirkpatrick (knee) did not appear on the Bengals' practice report Friday. Kirkpatrick was absent Wednesday, but escalated his level of participation in each subsequent practice, culminating with a full showing Friday.
