Boyd isn't listed on the Bengals' injury report for their upcoming wild-card game against the Raiders on Saturday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Boyd technically was active for the Week 18 loss to Cleveland, but he ultimately was one of a few veterans Cincinnati rested for the contest, finishing the afternoon without playing a single snap. He should return to his usual workload this Saturday against Las Vegas, and Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer adds that Boyd looked "especially sharp" at Wednesday's practice. The week of rest might have done Boyd some good, though he could face a tough matchup Saturday against Raiders slot corner Nate Hobbs, who has graded out well during his rookie season. Hobbs was part of the effort to limit Boyd to a 6-49-0 receiving on eight targets Week 11, when the Bengals beat the Raiders, 32-13.
