    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) will not be medically cleared by the team's June minicamp because he is recovering from shoulder surgery, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

    Huddle Up: Ross probably will not do much until training camp because of his offseason surgery. Ross could be used as a deep threat in the passing game as a rookie but probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Ross should be a decent option in keeper leagues because of his big-play potential.

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder), who underwent labrum surgery following the NFL Combine, indicated he'd be cleared to practice in July, and head coach Marvin Lewis said he should be ready to go near the start of the season.

    Huddle Up: There were whispers that Ross' stock was sliding entering the draft due to a history of medical issues -- he missed all of 2015 with ACL and meniscus injuries, and he previously underwent microfracture surgery -- but the Bengals felt his speed and potential were too great to pass up. Now they'll cross their fingers and hope he can stay healthy. There's undeniable potential opposite A.J. Green, but it seems like a lot to ask for Ross to heal up and then beat out holdovers Tyler Boyd and Cody Core. Still, he has some late-round potential.

    The Cincinnati Bengals selected Washington WR John Ross with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

    Huddle Up: Ross will compete for playing time with Tyler Boyd and Cody Core during training camp and probably will see most of his playing time on special teams as a rookie. He could have a role as a deep threat during the season. He should be considered a No. 5 receiver in the short term but can become a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in the long term.
