Former Ohio State football star Billy Price received great news about his football future on Friday morning.
The second-year offensive lineman missed six games during the 2018 NFL season with an ankle injury. Price opened the season as the starter at center for the Bengals before the injury and started when he returned.
Despite finishing the season as the starter, Price has yet to practice for the Bengals this summer.
Cincinnati placed Price on the non-football injury list to start camp.
However, the team announced on Friday morning that Price passed his physical and will start practice with the rest of the team.

It’s great news for a team that has been plagued by injuries this offseason.
Star wide receiver A.J. Green suffered torn ligaments in his ankle during the team’s first week of training camp. He’ll miss 6-8 weeks and could miss several regular season games.
The team also lost first-round pick Jonah Williams to a season-ending injury. Williams was expected to play a key role on the offensive line for the Bengals this season.
It’s a rough start to the season for first-year head coach Zac Taylor, but he received good news this afternoon.
Stay tuned for the latest from the NFL.
