The Cardnials exercised caution with Bynes by sidelining him for nearly a week to recover from a hamstring issue. He received first-team reps in his return, as Karlos Dansby was getting the day off. The Auburn product is seemingly on track for a healthy start to the season.
The former Auburn Tiger has been competing with Haason Reddick and Scooby Wright for playing time behind starter Deone Bucannon, who is on the preseason PUP list. Bynes recorded 38 tackles over nine games last season.
Bynes signed with Arizona on Sunday.
The 27-year-old veteran comes into training camp boasting a nice resume. Having lasted six seasons in the league already, Bynes use his experience and durability as his case for why he should land on the active roster come the regular season.
Bynes compiled six tackles, two TFLs and one deflected pass in Sunday's 20-17 victory over the Bears.
Bynes tied MLB Tahir Whitehead for the team lead in tackles Sunday and has now totaled 14 across the past two games. However, Whitehead is working his way back from a knee injury. As the team's leading tackler, Whiteheads return to full strength will likely correspond with a downturn in production for Bynes.
Bynes rejoins the Lions after being released by the team back in September. He was initially placed on injured reserve due to a knee aliment, but his re-signing could mean he is nearing a return. Look for more information to be released this week, as the linebacker is expected to backup Thurston Armbrister.
