The Bengals have wide receiver John Ross back in the fold.

Ross was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list when he left the team earlier this month in order to help care for his son and his son’s mother after they tested positive for the coronavirus. The Bengals announced on Sunday that Ross has been activated from the list.

The wideout was the only Bengals player on the COVID-19 list.

Ross takes the roster spot that opened up when the team put defensive lineman Renell Wren on injured reserve. Wren injured his quadricep in a practice last week and will miss the entire season as a result.

  1. This is such an interesting group of receivers coupled with a Joe Burrow. I mean, couple rookies, yeah, talent, hell yeah, Proven, some, some not. What I’m understanding about the Bengals camp so far, the veteran defense is saying Burrow does not miss his target. So many times I watched Dalton miss an open guy by a foot or less, mostly underthrown. Skies the limit for this group.

    Great point – Ross has shown glimpses, but I’d really like to see him catching a ball that’s thrown to him in stride.

    This whole position group has the ability to be pretty special assuming two of its top three receivers can stay healthy
