CINCINNATI -- Bengals receiver Jordan Shipley has been cleared to practice, the final step in his comeback from reconstructive knee surgery.
Shipley tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Sept. 18. He was limited during drills in the offseason and wasn't allowed to practice when training camp opened on Friday.
He practiced for the first time on Monday, along with cornerback Nate Clements. Clements started all but one game last season. He's been bothered by an abdominal strain.
