Bengals QB Joe Burrow said Wednesday that he expects WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) to return for this weekend's game vs. the Titans. That, of course, is far from a guarantee that Chase will be back. But Week 12 has reportedly been the target for his return for a while now. We'll keep a close eye on his status over the next few days.

Bengals HC Zac Taylor labeled WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) "day to day" on Monday. Chase is expected to return to practice this week, but Taylor was non-committal on his availability for Sunday's game vs. the Titans. We'll keep a close eye on him throughout the week.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow finished Sunday as the #2 fantasy QB for the week, trailing only Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. Burrow racked up 355 yards and 4 TDs in the win over the Steelers. It's his 1st 4-TD game of the season but 3rd game with 3+ among his past 5 outings. Burrow also threw 2 INTs, meaning 6 of his 8 INTs for the season have come against Pittsburgh. WR Tee Higgins dominated the market shares for targets, catches and yards, but RB Samaje Perine claimed 3 of the 4 receiving TDs. The other went to WR Trenton Irwin. Burrow gets a pass-funnel matchup at Tennessee in Week 12.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins set season highs in targets (13), receptions (9) and receiving yards (148) in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He accounted for 33.3% of QB Joe Burrow's pass attempts, 37.5% of the completions and 41.7% of the receiving yardage. RB Samaje Perine was the only other Bengal to catch more than 3 passes. WR Tyler Boyd finished 2nd on the team with 7 targets but caught only 2 for 42 yards. TE Hayden Hurst caught 2 of 3 targets for 28 yards. Week 12 presents a Titans matchup that should further motivate the Bengals to go pass-heavy -- especially if RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is out. The team reportedly hopes to have WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) back for that game. His return would hurt the fantasy outlook for Boyd more than Higgins.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is "improving" and got "very good news" on his rehab at a recent doctor appointment, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Chase is off crutches, per Rapoport, and "has a chance" to practice and play this coming week. We'll keep a close eye on Chase's progress when Cincinnati gets back to work on Wednesday.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Steelers. The team is reportedly “hopeful” that Chase will be back for Week 12, but he was still on crutches as of Monday. We’ll track his status this coming week.

As expected, Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. He was still on crutches as of Monday, and the latest report has the Bengals hoping for a Week 12 return.

The Bengals are "hopeful" that WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) will be back for Week 12, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. That seems like the best-case scenario considering Chase was still on crutches as of Monday. We'll continue to track his progress, but Chase is a heavy favorite to miss this weekend's game vs. the Steelers.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is still walking with crutches, according to insider Kelsey Conway. There's been some hope that Chase will be able to return for this weekend's game vs. the Steelers, but this news makes that seem unlikely. We'll keep you updated on Chase's status throughout the week.

Colts RB Zack Moss is a healthy scratch for today’s game vs. the Patriots. Indianapolis will roll with RBs Deon Jackson, Phillip Lindsay and Jordan Wilkins.

Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase (hip) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers, as expected. He’s still dodged IR as of now, so we'll see if Chase can make it back after Cincinnati's Week 10 bye.

Bengals LB Logan Wilson (shoulder) is ready to play Monday night against the Browns after putting in full practices all week. It's an impressive recovery from a shoulder injury that initially seemed likely to cost him multiple games. Wilson missed just 1. He's an LB3 with upside in our Week 8 IDP rankings. His return knocks LBs Germaine Pratt and Akeem Davis-Gaither down the rankings. Bengals EDGE Trey Hendrickson (neck) is also off the week's final injury report. He missed the 1st 2 days but then put in a full Friday. Cincinnati will most likely go without CB Eli Apple, who is doubtful with a hamstring injury.

The Bengals will not be placing WR Ja'Marr Chase on IR with his hip injury, according to insider Jordan Schultz. Schultz reports that Chase is dealing with a hairline hip fracture and torn labrum. He doesn't give a timetable for Chase's return, but no IR would mean the Bengals expect him back before Week 13. Chase is worth keeping stashed in all fantasy leagues.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks with a hip injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Chase reportedly suffered the initial injury against the Saints and then aggravated it in the win over the Falcons. The return timeline makes him likely to hit IR. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports, however, that he's only expected to need rest and rehab to come back from it. His absence makes Tyler Boyd a strong fantasy football option for this weekend and beyond.

Bengals QB Joe Burrow uncorked 42 passes for 481 yards and 3 scores in a Week 7 win over Atlanta. He added a 1-yard rushing score. Cincy led by double-digits for most of this game, but HC Zac Taylor kept the petal down, and Burrow delivered. His scores went to Tyler Boyd (60 yards) and Ja’Marr Chase (32 and 41 yards). Atlanta lost top CB A.J. Terrell early in this one, but Burrow simply wasn’t going to be stopped. He’s now hit 275+ yards and 2+ scores in 4 of his past 5 matchups. Next week, he gets a Browns pass D that might remain without CB Denzel Ward (concussion).

Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase torched Atlanta for 8 grabs, 130 yards and 2 scores. So much for the hip injury that landed him on the injury report. Chase made several sweet catches in this one, including a deep ball in tight coverage that went for 6. He’s now posted a staggering line of 12-244-4 over his past 6 quarters. Sure, the matchup was favorable on Sunday -- Atlanta even lost top CB A.J. Terrell in the 1st quarter. Still, it’s clear he’s trending up alongside a red hot Joe Burrow. He'll look to keep rolling against Cleveland.

Bengals EDGE Trey Hendrickson left Sunday's win over the Falcons with a neck injury. We'll watch for more on his outlook.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. Chase will be ready for his usual role vs. the Falcons this weekend.

Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) was limited in practice on Thursday for the 2nd straight day. We've heard no concern about his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons, but his status is worth checking back on tomorrow.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice for the 1st time since hurting that ankle in Week 4. He's an upside fantasy play in Sunday's plus matchup vs. the Falcons.
