Bengals OT Jake Fisher practices for first time since heart surgery

Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Jake Fisher said Wednesday he has been cleared for all football activity -- seven months after undergoing heart surgery.

The 2015 second-round draft pick had surgery Nov. 18 to correct an irregular heartbeat and has slowly been working his way back to the field.

After being limited throughout the team's voluntary workouts this offseason, Fisher was full-go Tuesday with the start of mandatory minicamp and participated in 11-on-11 drills for the first time since last fall. His return to practice Wednesday indicates he remains on track.

"I was able to get out there and put my best foot forward and just keep getting better and knock some rust off," Fisher said after practice.
