John Ross expected back at practice this weekend

Bengals wide receiver John Ross has been out of action since injuring his hamstring in late July, but the team has set its sights on a return date.

Head coach Zac Taylor said on Monday that Ross won’t play in Thursday’s game against the Giants, but that he’s expected back at practice a few days later.

“He won’t play this Thursday. Sunday would be the target for him. He’ll get a full two weeks of practice before Seattle,” Taylor said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The Bengals are going to be without A.J. Green for the start of the regular season, so getting production from Ross would be a big boost out of the gate. The wideout’s first two seasons offered little reason to believe they’ll get it, but Ross knows that this might be his last chance to show the team he can play at the level they expected when they took him in the first round of the 2017 draft.

  1. I hope Zac Taylor isn’t counting on this guy for his offense. He’s either dealing with psychological issues, dropping balls, giving up on balls or complaining about his delicate hamstrings. Horrible draft pick by Tobin.

  2. John who? Ohhh the guy that rides his stationary bike on the sideline. I know him. Gotcha. With his track record I hope they make him wear a helmet while on his bike this year.

  3. He’ll always be famous for being selected right before Patrick Mahomes. Typical Bengal strategy.

    The Bengals are going to be one of the 3-4 worst teams this year, thanks in large part to wasted draft picks like Ross.

  4. After a big sip of the Kool-Aid, I think this team can surprise some people if the OLine keeps Dalton upright. The D will be improved and I have a quiet confidence the offense will average 21 points or more a game, which is a number that should get them to 8-8 or 9-7.
