Tee Higgins injury updates

Thursday, Dec. 22 update — Higgins has been removed from the injury report and will play this week against the Patriots.

Wednesday, Dec. 21 update — Higgins was listed as a full participant for Wednesday’s practice.

Tuesday, December 20 update — Higgins was listed as limited in Tuesday’s walk-through with a hamstring issue.

Fantasy football advice

If Higgins has his snaps limited or is unable to play this weekend, Joe Burrow will look toward Tyler Boyd and Ja’Marr Chase downfield. The Bengals have plenty of talent at the receiver position, though TE Hayden Hurst is still questionable. RBs Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine will likely get plenty of targets and carries, as well.

Higgins leads the team in receiving yards for the season with 894.
