Wide receiver Andrew Hawkins was activated from injured reserve seven days after he returned to practice with the Cincinnati Bengals on a roster exemption.
Hawkins was on injured reserve because of an ankle injury suffered during the preseason. He was designated for possible return under NFL rules adopted last season.
A third-year pro, Hawkins saw action in 14 games last season and was the team's third-leading receiver with 51 receptions for 533 yards and four touchdowns.
