Minter had ten tackles during Sunday's loss to Baltimore.
Minter entered the week with an undisclosed injury but it seems like that's now in the rear view mirror.
Minter (undisclosed) has been absent from practice for personal reasons and is expected to return to practice Friday, Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News reports.
Minter has missed the last two days of practice, but after attending to a personal matter, it appears as though he will be set to return to the field Friday and ultimately play in Sunday's preseason game against the Redskins.
Minter did not participate in Thursday's practice for an undisclosed reason, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
This is the second straight practice that Minter has missed, and the reasons surrounding his absence are yet to be reported. Minter is expected to play a large role at linebacker on the Bengals defense this season after playing in all 16 games with the Cardinals in back-to-back years.
The Bengals clearly expect Minter to handle a significant role, coming off back-to-back seasons in which he started all 16 games for the Cardinals. He played inside linebacker in Arizona's 3-4 defense, but it's possible he'll move to the strong side in Cincinnati's 4-3 -- allowing Vontaze Burfict and Vincent Rey to retain their spots on the weak side and in the middle.
