Bengals WR Tee Higgins was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with a hamstring. So his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Browns is now in question. Check back tomorrow for another update on Higgins.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 286 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He found Tee Higgins and RB Chris Evans for scores, adding a rushing TD from 4 yards out to kick off the scoring. Burrow took 11 rushing attempts for 46 yards, his largest total since Week 1. Now comes a Week 14 rematch with a Cleveland team that embarrassed the Bengals in a 32-13 Week 8 win.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins caught 1 of QB Joe Burrow's 2 TD passes in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. That accompanied just 3 catches for 35 yards among 5 targets. Higgins nearly added a 2nd TD catch but just missed getting his feet down inbounds. Week 14 brings a rematch with the Browns.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase returned from 4 games off for a hip injury to lead the Bengals in targets (8), receptions (7) and receiving yards (97) in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. Chase now gets his 1st matchup this year with a Browns team that limited him to 6-49 receiving among 13 targets in their lone full meeting last year. (Chase played just 9 snaps in the regular-season finale, when Cincinnati benched most starters after clinching.)

Bengals LB Logan Wilson (illness) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Chiefs. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. We haven’t heard anything about Chase’s role today. There’s certainly a chance that he’s on some type of snap count in his 1st action since Week 7, but Chase would still carry plenty of upside even then. You’d need to be loaded at WR to consider benching him in this matchup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirm that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is expected to play vs. the Chiefs today. Chase carries more risk than usual in his 1st game back from the hip injury, but he'd be tough to sit in a likely shootout. See exactly where Chase sits in the Week 13 WR Rankings.

Bengals LB Logan Wilson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs because of an illness. He missed Friday's practice after not showing up on the injury report the previous 2 days. The team has deemed him day-to-day. We'll see about Wilson's status Sunday.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Chiefs. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and is “on track” to return for this one, HC Zac Taylor said Friday. Chase can be penciled back into Week 13 fantasy lineups. Chiefs-Bengals doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET, but we should get an update on his status on Sunday morning.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's fully expected to return for this weekend's game vs. the Chiefs, but we'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He confirmed afterward that he's planning to play vs. the Chiefs this weekend. "We're going to see how I feel later in the week, but I'm expecting to take some reps," Chase said. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his status, but Chase can be penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups.

We'll watch the status of Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase throughout this week, but it sure sounds like he's ready to get back to a full-time role. "I don't have no pain," he told reporters Wednesday, according to ESPN's Ben Baby. We'll take this as good news rather than a subtle linguistic clue that Chase does have some pain. Expect to start Chase in your fantasy football lineups against the Chiefs' rookie perimeter CBs this weekend.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is expected to return for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. Chase got in 3 limited practices last week and seemed at least close to playing against the Titans. We'll keep an eye on his status this week, but he can be penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 270 yards and 1 TD on 59.5% completions in Sunday's win at Tennessee. WR Tee Higgins snagged that lone TD, en route to easily leading the team with 7 catches for 114 yards. TE Hayden Hurst tied Higgins for the target lead (9) and caught 6 for 57 yards. WR Tyler Boyd added just 2 catches for 16 yards. WR Ja'Marr Chase seems to be trending toward a Week 13 return against Kansas City. That would likely push Boyd out of fantasy-starter consideration.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is officially inactive for today’s game vs. the Titans. He got in 3 limited practices this week and seems to be trending toward a Week 13 return.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is not expected to play vs. the Titans today. He's seemingly making good progress with his rehab and should tentatively be expected back for Week 13. His absence today boosts the target projections for WRs Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

The Score's Jordan Schultz reports that Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) will not play vs. the Titans on Sunday. "I’m told the Bengals’ All-Pro WR had a good week of practice, but isn’t quite ready to return from a hairline hip fracture and torn labrum," Schultz tweets. This conflicts with NFL Network's take that Chase was trending toward returning for this one -- but Schultz's reports tend to be on point. We should get further updates on Chase's status on Sunday morning and will get Cincinnati's inactives at 11:30 am ET.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is a game-time decision but is "trending in the right direction" to play vs. the Titans on Sunday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport adds that Chase was originally expected to miss more time but that his doctor's appointment last week was "exceptionally positive." Insider Mike Garafolo adds that Chase will still be "battling through" the hip issue. He was limited in practice all week -- and it's certainly possible that his snaps and/or effectiveness are limited tomorrow.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) got in 3 limited practices this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans.
