Hewitt (undisclosed) was activated from the NFI list on Monday and will be eligible to return to practice, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Hewitt was originally on the NFI list due to an undisclosed reason, but he's slated to return to training camp this week. He'll compete with Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah for reps at tight end behind starter Tyler Eifert (back).
Hewitt (knee) was a full participant during Thursday's practice session.
Hewitt started the week as a limited participant and did not carry an injury designation into last Sunday's win over the Lions. The 26-year-old appears on track to play Week 17, barring a setback at Friday's practice.
Hewitt (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Hewitt's practice time was limited last week due to the same injury. The tight end ultimately avoided an injury designation and suited up for the Week 16 win over the Lions, so expect things to play out in a similar fashion ahead of the season finale against the Ravens.
Hewitt (knee) was a full participant at Friday's practice and is expected to play in Sunday's matchup against the Lions.
Hewitt had been bothered by a knee issue that kept him out of Wednesday's practice earlier in the week, but he'll be good to go for Week 16. He's caught just two passes in 11 games this season, so don't expect much production out of the Bengals' No. 3 tight end while Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah remain healthy.
