The Cincinnati Bengals may not have wide receiver Tee Higgins for the third straight week due to a hamstring injury he suffered in practice prior to Week 10. 

Higgins was unable to practice on Thursday, putting his status in doubt for this week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

Here’s a look at the latest surrounding Higgins’ injury, including a player to consider betting if Higgins sits out.

Tee Higgins did not practice early this week, and he is on the wrong side of questionable entering Friday’s session.

Ja’Marr Chase anytime touchdown scorer

This is a bit of a dart throw since Joe Burrow is out and Jake Browning is making his first career start for the Bengals. 

However, Chase had a touchdown grab on Thursday last week with Browning under center, and he was targeted four times by the backup quarterback. 

Trusting the Bengals’ passing attack will be tough, but Chase is one of the few players I’d consider betting on.
