Update: Higgins tweaked his hamstring injury in pre-game warmups, per Ben Baby. He also managed to sneak on the field for the first play of the game somehow.
Zac Taylor added that they did not want Tee Higgins on the field at all but he managed to find his way on to the field for the first snap from scrimmage, his only play of the game.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) December 11, 2022
Update: Higgins appears to have tweaked his hamstring and is questionable to play again today.
Bengals’ WR Tee Higgins has a right hamstring injury and his return today is questionable.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 11, 2022
Week 14 of the NFL season is upon us. The Cincinnati Bengals are hosting the Cleveland Browns in an AFC North battle. The injury bug has already started biting the Cincy offense through the first quarter. The team’s No. 3 wide receiver Tyler Boyd suffered a finger injury and is questionable to return. No. 2 wide receiver Tee Higgins isn’t officially hurt, yet, but is suffering from an extremely slow start.
Higgins picked up a hamstring injury on Thursday this week. He came into the weekend without an injury designation, though, so it was expected that he would see a normal workload. We haven’t seen reports that he suffered a setback during pregame warmups or anything, but he looks very limited so far in this game.
Higgins was out there for the first Bengals’ play but hasn’t made an appearance since. He wasn’t targeted on the play and hasn’t registered any stats so far in the game.

Higgins seems to be sidelined with his hamstring injury, but we will continue to update this post with more news as it is received.
