The "initial belief" is that Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah sprained his left MCL in the AFC Championship win over the Chiefs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Uzomah is scheduled for an MRI to get a better look at the damage, but it sounds like he avoided a significant injury that would impact his 2022 season. Uzomah remains iffy for the Super Bowl. We should get another update on his status this afternoon.
The Jets have agreed to a 3-year, $24 million deal with the Jets, according to multiple reports. That'll obviously make him the Jets' lead TE. Uzomah has yet to reach 50 receptions in a season, though. And he'll join a Jets offense that returns WR Corey Davis and WR Elijah Moore. And the Jets re-signed Braxton Berrios this week. Expect Uzomah to continue toiling in low-TE2 range of the fantasy football rankings.
Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) is active for the Super Bowl. He sprained his MCL in the AFC Championship but put in a limited practice on Thursday and a full practice on Friday. Still, don't expect him to be at 100% vs. the Rams.
Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) is listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. He went from a limited practice on Thursday to full participation on Friday. HC Zac Taylor said again Friday that he expects Uzomah to play. We'll get Cincinnati's inactives around 5 pm ET on Sunday. Just 2 weeks removed from an MCL sprain, Uzomah will carry elevated risk if he suits up.
Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) was upgraded to limited participation in Thursday's practice. HC Zac Taylor has sounded optimistic about Uzomah's availability for the Super Bowl, and he looks to be trending in the right direction. We'll get Cincinnati's final injury report on Friday afternoon.
Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah (knee) was officially listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice. But he worked off to the side with a trainer, and HC Zac Taylor said afterward that Uzomah looks "positive" for Sunday's Super Bowl. "Considering where he was when he fell on the turf last Sunday to where he is now, I'm really optimistic about how it's going," Taylor added. "We'll continue to see him in action these next 2 days, but optimistic." We'll see what Uzomah is able to do on Thursday.
