The Cincinnati Bengals will be without three of their top-4 projected wide receivers tonight, as Marvin Jones was a late scratch, as A.J. Green and Andrew Hawkins did not even make the trip to Atlanta this week.

This is a golden oppurtunity for Brandon Tate to showcase his receiving ability and prove that he can contribute as more than just an enigmatic returner on special teams.

With Vinny Rey out, that means more playing time for third-rounder Sean Porter, as well as undrafted linebackers Bruce Carter, Jayson Dimanche and Jordan Campbell.
