Cincinnati Bengals superstar receiver Ja’Marr Chase suffered a back injury in Week 9 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was able to finish the game. 

Now, his status looks to be in question for Week 10 against the Houston Texans after he missed Wednesday’s practice and was limited the rest of the week. Chase is considered 50-50 for Sunday's game.

If Chase is unable to go, Tyler Boyd would need to step up at receiver for the Bengals. Tee Higgins has already been ruled out for Cincy. For now, it appears Chase still has a chance to play this week.

Ja’Marr Chase injury history

Chase has been very healthy in his NFL career, only missing four games due to a hip injury he suffered last season. 

  • Oct. 2022: Inguinal Hip Fracture and Tear – missed four games

Hopefully, he is able to recover quickly from his back ailment. 

When is Ja’Marr Chase coming back?

If Chase’s back injury holds him out of Week 10, his next chance to play would come in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens – on a short week. That is going to be a tough turnaround regardless if he plays against the Texans or not.
