Browns quarterback Jason Campbell is showing no signs of problems with his bruised ribs as Cleveland practices for the first time after its bye week.

Campbell was injured during a Nov. 3 win over Baltimore. During the early portion of Monday's practice open to reporters, Campbell made all the throws with the Browns (4-5) working outside in blustery, frigid weather. He has gone 1-1 since replacing Brandon Weeden as starter.

The time off allowed Campbell to get healthier, and the Browns returned to work closer to the top of the AFC North. They'll visit the first-place Cincinnati Bengals (6-4) this week with a chance to push themselves deeper into the playoff picture.

Cleveland, which hasn't made the postseason since 2002, beat Cincinnati 17-6 earlier this season. The Bengals lost in overtime to the Ravens on Sunday.
