So let's get the timeline straight here:
Odell Thurman is reinstated
Thurman attends rookie minicamp (voluntary), impressing. Ahmad Brooks is moved from middle linebacker to strongside linebacker, leaving Thurman the obvious starter at "Mike".
Thurman's grandmother dies. He goes to Georgia to attend the funeral and misses three (voluntary) workouts, and admits to Marvin Lewis he expects to miss a few more.
The Bengals cut Thurman, promoting "Dhancin'" Dhani Jones to starter at MLB.
