Higgins (hamstring) finished his rookie season with 67 catches for 908 yards and six touchdowns on 108 targets. Higgins played all 16 games, though he took just 15 snaps in Week 1 and three snaps in Week 17. In the eight games he and Joe Burrow both started and finished, Higgins averaged 5.0 catches for 75.4 yards and 0.5 TDs. The young wideout then averaged 4.8 catches for 55.8 yards and 0.4 TDs while playing with backup quarterbacks Weeks 12-16, before injuring his hamstring in the first quarter of the season finale. Higgins should return to health long before Burrow, who will be about 10 months removed from tearing his ACL when the 2021 regular season kicks off.
Higgins was forced out of Sunday's game against the Ravens with a hamstring injury. Prior to his first-quarter exit from the contest, Higgins did not record a catch, while logging one target. In his absence, Alex Erickson is next up for extra Week 17 snaps.
Higgins (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Ravens after practicing fully Friday. The same holds true for Tyler Boyd (concussion), meaning the Bengals will have their top wide receivers available for the season finale. The rookie wideout will look to maintain the chemistry he displayed with quarterback Brandon Allen in Week 16, when he logged six catches on nine targets for 99 yards and a touchdown in Cincinnati's 37-31 win over the Texans.
Higgins (hamstring) is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports. The 21-year-old has been limited at practice this week due to the hamstring issue, but it isn't expected to affect his availability for the season finale. Later Friday, the Bengals will release their final Week 17 injury report, which will reveal whether he carries an injury designation into the contest.
Higgins (hamstring) remained limited at practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. What Higgins is able to do at practice Friday should determine whether he approaches Sunday's game against the Ravens with an injury designation or cleared for Week 17 action. The same applies to fellow wide receiver Tyler Boyd (concussion), with Alex Erickson next up for extra snaps if either Higgins or Boyd are out or limited this weekend.
