Friday PM Update: Higgins is off the final injury report of the week and should play on Sunday.
Friday Early Update: Higgins is expected to play in Sunday’s divisional game against the Browns. We will get the final injury report later Friday afternoon, which will show his practice participation and if he heads into the weekend with an injury designation.
Bengals WR Tee Higgins is expected to play Sunday against the Browns, coach Zac Taylor said.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) December 9, 2022
The Cincinnati Bengals take on in-state and division rival the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Hopefully they will have wide receiver Tee Higgins, but he did pop up on the injury report Thursday with a hamstring injury. New injuries during the week are never a good thing, but we don’t exactly know the context of this one.
If Higgins suffered an injury in practice that limited him, that is bad, but if he just had a little tightening of the hamstring and the team wanted to play it safe, he could be just fine and practice in full on Friday. We will have to wait for more information.
Fantasy football implications for Week 14
If Higgins plays, he’s an automatic start on the Bengals great passing attack led by Joe Burrow. If he were to sit, Tyler Boyd would likely become a strong play, especially with Hayden Hurst already out for this week.
