Malone (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports. With A.J. Green (toe) also likely out this week, Alex Erickson and Cody Core are likely to act as the Bengals' primary depth wideouts behind Tyler Boyd and John Ross (groin). Ross is listed as questionable with the injury, so there's a chance both Erickson and Core could have regular roles in three-receiver sets in Week 11.
Malone (hamstring) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. With Malone opening the week with back-to-back absences at practice, the wideout appears to be trending toward missing a second straight game Sunday in Baltimore. If both Malone and A.J. Green (toe) are sidelined again, Alex Erickson, Cody Core and Auden Tate would likely work as the primary depth receivers behind Tyler Boyd and John Ross (groin).
Malone (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. Malone sat out Sunday's 51-14 loss to the Saints with the injury and continues to work toward a full recovery. His absence from the first practice of Week 11 isn't an encouraging sign, but Malone will have two more chances to prove his health in practice before his status is solidified. If Malone is able to play in the Bengals' matchup with the Ravens this weekend, he could have a role on offense with A.J. Green (toe) looking unlikely to be available.
Malone (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. With A.J. Green (toe) also out, Tyler Boyd, John Ross and Alex Erickson figure to lead the Bengals' Week 10 wideout corps, with Cody Core and Auden Tate also in the mix.
Malone was added to the Bengals' injury report Thursday as a limited participant in practice due to a hamstring issue, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. It's uncertain if Malone nursed the injury coming into the day and was deliberately limited as a result or if he was forced to exit the session early after suffering the hamstring issue. Either way, the fact that Malone isn't fully healthy at the moment is an unfortunate development, as the Bengals will need all hands on deck at receiver in Week 10 against the Saints with top target A.J. Green (toe) unavailable. If cleared to play Sunday, Malone would likely take on an increased role on offense after being limited to single-digit snaps in five of his seven appearances on the season.
