Jets WR Breshad Perriman is considered "week to week" after spraining his left ankle in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That likely means the wideout will miss at least Sunday's game against the Colts. The Jets also watched WR Chris Hogan leave Sunday's game with a rib injury, but NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports there was no fracture and that Hogan "should be OK moving forward." Rookie WR Denzel Mims (hamstring) is on IR for at least another 2 games, and WR Jamison Crowder missed Week 2 with his own hamstring injury. That left Hogan, Braxton Berrios and Josh Malone as the Jets' top 3 in targets vs. San Francisco. Yuck. We'll see who's available heading into Week 3.
Bengals WR John Ross (groin) is out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Josh Malone will step in as Cincinnati's #3 WR but isn't a fantasy option. A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon figure to dominate targets.
Bengals WR John Ross (groin) was held out of Thursday's practice after being limited Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of playing against the Dolphins this weekend. Ross' absence would leave Josh Malone as Cincinnati's #3 WR -- and push more targets toward A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd.
The Bengals nabbed Tennessee WR Josh Malone in the 4th round of the draft. The former 5-star recruit was quiet in his first 2 college seasons but broke out last year with a 50-972-11 line. Malone clocked a 4.40-second 40-yard dash at 6’3, 208 pounds, although he struggled in the other drills at the Combine. Still, the tape shows a guy who could at least develop into a dangerous deep threat at the next level. Malone joins a suddenly young and deep Bengals WR corps that includes A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and fellow rookie John Ross.
