 Cincinnati,  OH (Sports  Network) - The Cincinnati Bengals activated defensive
 tackle  Pat  Sims off the  physically unable to  perform list Friday, with the
 expectation  that the veteran lineman will play in this weekend's game against
 the New York Giants.
 Sims,  a  member of Cincinnati's  defensive line rotation  in each of the past
 four  seasons, had been sidelined since training camp with a hamstring injury.
 The 26-year-old also had his 2011 campaign cut short after only 11 games after
 tearing ligaments in his ankle last November.
 A  third-round  pick of the Bengals  in 2008, Sims  has played in 52 games and
 made 23 starts in his pro career.
 To  make room  on  the  53-man roster,  Cincinnati  waived reserve  linebacker
 Roddrick Muckelroy.
 In  other team  injury news,  starting safety  Reggie Nelson  is doubtful  for
 Sunday's  matchup with  the Giants  after  hurting his  hamstring during  last
 weekend's  loss to Denver. Rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, who made his NFL
 debut  against the Broncos after missing the Bengals' first seven games with a
 preseason   knee  issue,   did  not  practice  on  Friday  and  is  listed  as
 Center  Jeff Faine (hamstring) was a limited participant on Friday and is also
 questionable, while leading rusher BenJarvus Green-Ellis (illness) is probable
 to play.
