Injured Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is ready to return to the field for the Cleveland Browns. Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports that Fujita will start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals:

Fujita was originally suspended for the first four games of the season due to his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, but he successfully appealed the suspension in court. He was injured and missed most of training camp and the preseason and just started practicing earlier this week. Browns coach Pat Shurmur said earlier this week that Fujita would play Sunday, but didn't specify how much or in what role.
