Thursday PM update: Head coach Zac Taylor says that Higgins took most of the repos on Wednesday and that his foot is fine. He will play as usual this weekend.
Bengals WR Tee Higgins (foot) will play on Saturday, per Zac Taylor.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) January 13, 2022
Thursday update: Higgins was at practice on Thursday, per Ben Baby. We’ll see if he is limited again with a foot injury that popped up on Wednesday, but this is a good sign that he is still on track to play this weekend.
The Cincinnati Bengals will be in the playoffs after finishing last in the AFC North in 2020, winning the division this season behind Joe Burrow’s commanding year. The Bengals play the Las Vegas Raiders in the wild-card round and hope to have their key players suiting up for this game. One of those players is wide receiver Tee Higgins, who is dealing with a foot injury and was limited in practice Wednesday.
Fantasy football implications
Higgins had issues with leg injuries earlier in the season, so this is not a surprise after weeks of potential aggravation. The receiver may have taken a backseat to Ja’Marr Chase in the headlines, but his production has been on par with the LSU rookie of late. If Higgins continues to be limited, look for Tyler Boyd as a potential replacement option in playoff fantasy football. If Higgins does suit up, he represents a great play as an alternative to Chase without much of a dip in production.
