Anderson

Pro Bowl right tackle Willie Anderson (hamstring) returned to practice Monday afternoon as his partner on the left, Levi Jones (ankle), worked on the side. Both have a chance to play next Monday night against the Packers, but cornerback Rashad Bauman went on season-ending injured reserve with surgery for a ruptured patella tendon in his kneecap.

Linebackers Brian Simmons and David Pollack (hamstring) didn't practice, but Simmons worked on the side and Pollack worked in some defensive drills without a helmet. Also back for the defense after a day off were cornerback Deltha O'Neal and safety Dexter Jackson.

Quarterback Carson Palmer continued to take first-team reps, but now concern may have to shift to wide receiver. About two weeks ago it was the deepest corps in the league, but injuries keep eating away at it.

Wide receiver Antonio Chatman (groin) did some work Monday, but he didn't run any routes with the receivers early in practice. Chris Henry, who didn't play Friday night after hurting his hamstring against Washington in the opener, sat out his second straight practice. He's also coming back from a significant knee injury that hasn't received half the attention of Palmer's even though they did it on the same play in the Wild Card game. Henry didn't have surgery, but a posterior cruciate ligament tear is considered to have a difficult rehab.

Chris Henry's trial date for a felony gun charge in Orlando, Fla., has yet to be set, but the trial will be within the next two weeks unless it is continued, according to Danielle Tavernier of the State Attorney's Office. Monday began the two-week window for the judge to set the date.

Head coach Marvin Lewis has said he doesn't believe Henry is going to miss practice time.

Meanwhile, the once forgotten Kelley Washington took several snaps with the first team.
