    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) will once again be out of the lineup for Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: Ross has a bye in Week 6, so hopefully this gives him time to get that knee in shape. The offense in Cincinnati has been horrid, so you may want to avoid Ross for the time being.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 11:28pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) 'tweaked' his knee during the team's practice Thursday, Sept. 21, and he'll likely require an MRI.

    Huddle Up: Ross, who missed Week 1 with a knee injury and sat out Wednesday's practice due to illness, apparently walked off under his own power without a noticeable limp. Ross had 'lottery ticket' potential given Green Bay's secondary troubles in Atlanta, but this certainly throws his Week 3 status into serious doubt.

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) had one carry for 12 yards against the Houston Texans on Thursday, Sept. 14. He was not targeted as a receiver and fumbled his lone carry, which was recovered by Houston.

    Huddle Up: It was surprising that Ross was active, but any plans to use him apparently went up in smoke when he put the ball on the ground on his first official NFL touch. While brighter days are certainly ahead there's no pressing reason to get Ross in your lineup.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 4:28pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Ross will be making his NFL debut against the Houston Texans and could see more time than expected with Tyler Boyd sidelined. He probably will be used as a deep threat and slot receiver which makes him a possible flex option in deeper leagues because of his touchdown potential.

  • Posted: 9/11/2017 3:11pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Ross missed the first game of the season but may have a chance to play against the Houston Texans. He probably would receive limited snaps if he is active for the game and can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 9:18am ET

    Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) is not active for Week 1's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Ross could also be held out of Week 2's game against the Houston Texans because of the sprained left knee he suffered in the preseason finale. Once he returns to action, WRs Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd could see a reduced number of snaps. Seasonal owners, particularly those in dynasty leagues, should continue to be patient.

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) is not expected to play in Week 1's game against the Baltimore Ravens, although he may try to test out the injury during pregame warmups, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Ross was a limited participant in practice during the week but could be held out until Week 3 due to a sprained knee that he suffered in the final preseason game. Seasonal owners should continue to keep him stashed on their roster. WRs Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd should see more targets in Ross' absence.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 12:18pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Ross seems to be making progress, but he's still unlikely to make his NFL debut this week. Ross has elite speed, but that speed is what makes him primarily just a deep threat. It will take an injury to his fellow receivers for Ross to be considered for starter status.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 11:32pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) took part in some one-on-one drills during practice Wednesday, Sept. 6, but he was unable to participate in 11-on-11. He's not expected to play in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Ross doing some one-on-one work is a positive development -- or at least it's better than the official 'did not participate' designation on the practice report. Ross is likely to miss the first two games, but if you spent a draft pick on him you might as well keep him stashed on your bench.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 12:19pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) is expected to miss the first two weeks of the season due to his sprained knee, according to a source. Look for a Week 3 debut for the rookie speedster.

    Huddle Up: Ross is already off to a slow start in his first year in the NFL, and he may be eased in once he takes the field. He'll be trying to take away targets from A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert, Brandon LaFell, Tyler Boyd and others, too, so Ross has a good chance to be a mainstay on most fantasy benches.

  • Posted: 9/4/2017 4:33pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 4.

    Huddle Up: Ross suffered the injury in the last preseason game and may miss a few weeks. Owners can check on his status later in the week but should look for other options to use.

  • Posted: 8/31/2017 4:58pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (knee) suffered a knee injury during the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 31, and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to look for an update on Ross' status after the game to see if he is in any danger of missing Week 1. Ross probably will see limited targets during his rookie season but will have value because of his big play ability. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 8/27/2017 6:05pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) made his preseason debut Sunday, Aug. 27, finishing without a catch on two targets and rushing once for eight yards in a 23-17 loss to the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Ross will be expected to provide a deep threat for the Bengals offense, but it would be a surprise if he is ready to be a consistent contributor. Stash him in keeper formats, but you can pass on him in redraft leagues.

  • Posted: 8/14/2017 1:03pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Monday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately for Ross, he's a one-trick pony; a deep threat. Plus, he'll be competing for targets behind at least A.J. Green, Brandon LaFell and Tyler Eifert. The rookie speedster is a stash in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 7/28/2017 4:42pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list but will be limited during the early part of training camp.

    Huddle Up: Ross probably will miss a few preseason games but appears to be on track for the start of the regular season. Ross probably will be used in the slot and will be a deep threat in the passing game. He could be a No. 5 receiver in some fantasy leagues because of his big-play potential.

  • Posted: 7/26/2017 3:29pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) is expected to miss a few weeks of practice because of his surgically repaired shoulder.

    Huddle Up: Ross should be ready for the start of the regular season but likely will be limited during training camp and the preseason. He may be used as a slot receiver and likely will be a deep threat for the Bengals during his rookie season. Ross could be a No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues because of his big play ability.

  • Posted: 6/13/2017 7:10pm ET

    Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (shoulder) said his surgically repaired shoulder is feeling great and expects to be ready for the start of training camp. Ross appeared to be doing some things with the receiver group during practice Tuesday, June 13, but did not have a helmet.

    Huddle Up: Ross likely will be used as a deep threat for the Bengals this season and could also receive some short passes to allow him to use his speed. Ross can be a late-round option for owners because of his big-play ability and probably will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

  • Posted: 5/5/2017 4:04pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 4/27/2017 10:06pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 4/27/2017 6:16pm ET

    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.
