Bengals HC Zac Taylor expects WR John Ross (hamstring) to be ready for Week 1. The oft-injured wideout has been sidelined since early July with his latest ailment. If healthy, he figures to serve as Cincinnati's #2 WR until A.J. Green is ready to return from his ankle injury. It'll still be tough to consider Ross more than a DFS flier, though. He's been completely unreliable through his first 2 NFL seasons.

Bengals WR John Ross (clavicle) is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Browns, HC Zac Taylor said. Ross exploded for 7-158-2 and 4-112-1 lines in the first 2 weeks of the season but totaled just 58 scoreless yards over the next 2. He can't be trusted in Week 14 fantasy lineups -- but his return does upgrade QB Andy Dalton's weaponry.

Bengals WR John Ross (collarbone) has been designated to return from IR and will practice on Wednesday. He's still not eligible to play until Week 14, so we wouldn't bother adding Ross to fantasy rosters outside of the deepest of leagues. He opened the season with big 7-158-2 and 4-112-1 lines but totaled just 5 catches for 58 scoreless yards the next 2 weeks.

The Bengals have placed WR John Ross (shoulder) on IR. It's unclear if he's a candidate to return, but he's out for at least the next 8 weeks. Ross can be dropped from redraft rosters. Cincinnati moves forward with Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Damion Willis atop the WR depth chart -- until A.J. Green is ready to return from his ankle injury.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Bengals WR John Ross is expected to miss "multiple games" with the shoulder injury he suffered late in Monday night's loss to the Steelers. "Could be in the range of a month or so," Garafolo adds. Cincinnati has a Week 9 bye, so it's possible Ross is sidelined until Week 10. With WR A.J. Green still out, the Bengals are down to Tyler Boyd, Auden Tate and Damion Willis as their top 3 WRs.

Bengals WR John Ross left in the 2nd half of Monday night's game against the Steelers with a right shoulder injury. He got whipped to the ground after a reception, and landed on the shoulder first. Cincinnati deemed him questionable to return, which may bode well for the severity of the issue. We'll keep an eye on Ross' status heading into Week 5.
