CINCINNATI (AP) Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is active for the first time this season, ready to make his NFL debut against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
Kirkpatrick hasn't played because of a knee injury suffered over the summer. The first-round pick hadn't been active for any game so far.
Receiver Andre Caldwell also is inactive for the Broncos, missing a chance to play against his former team.
