The 24-year-old was able to return to the Bengals on a new contract, and should be a mainstay for their offensive line. Last season, Hart suited up in every game and took every snap at left tackle for the Bengals.
Hart (back) did not appear on Wednesday's injury report, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Hart's back injury surfaced one day prior to last week's game against the Browns. It seems as though the four-year vet has moved past the injury by avoiding Wednesday's report. Barring any setbacks, Hart seems ready to go for Sunday's regular-season finale.
Hart was a late addition to the injury report Saturday and is now considered questionable for Week 16 with a back injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
Hart has started all 14 games this season for the Bengals, but a back injury late in the week could threaten his status for Sunday's matchup with the Browns because of it. Cedric Ogbuehi would likely slot in at right tackle if he can't go.
Hart allowed two sacks against the Colts' Margus Hunt in Week 1, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The right side of the Bengals' offensive line remains a question mark. Teammate Alex Redmond also struggled at right guard. The competition only gets tougher Thursday night against the Ravens.
Hart, the former Giant, is competing with Jake Fisher and Cedric Ogbuehi for the job. Fisher has been having a pretty bad camp so far. The team is someone emerges at both right-side line spots to improve the team's weakest positions from last season.
