Giants' John Ross: Catches on with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (foot) has signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Per the report, $1 million of the wideout's deal is guaranteed. Assuming he's past the foot issue that derailed his 2020 campaign, the 2017 first-rounder will add some much-needed speed to the Giants' pass-catching corps. Ross has much to prove after faltering during his four-year tenure with the Bengals, but when healthy, the 25-year-old has the wheels to serve as a big play threat. With a fresh start in New York, a 2021 bounce-back is plausible.

Bengals' John Ross: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals have placed Ross (foot) on injured reserve, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Ross has not played since Week 6 due to a variety of issues. He will now be sidelined at least the next three games. It has been rumored that the 24-year-old and 2017 first-round pick could be transitioned into cornerback due to the team's lack of depth at the position. However, for now he will simply focus on his foot recovery.

Bengals' John Ross: Not moving to corner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (foot) never actually practiced at cornerback and only discussed moving to the position with the Bengals' coaching staff, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

This follows an initially incorrect report by Garafolo that Ross had actually injured his foot while practicing at cornerback. The Bengals' dire need to provide depth at cornerback at least allowed them to broach the conversation with the 24-year-old, but no positional move appears to be imminent, especially after Ross suffered a foot injury, which will keep him out for Week 10 and potentially future weeks.

Bengals' John Ross: Injured transitioning to corner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross, who will not play in Week 10 after injuring his foot, was practicing at cornerback when he suffered the injury, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The 2017 first-round pick has not played more than one offensive snap since Week 3, so the Bengals attempted to have their speedy wideout essentially act as an emergency cornerback considering the team's lack of depth after injuries and COVID-19 have ruled out four corners entering Week 10. It would have been interesting to see if this was simply a one-week deal or if the Bengals truly planned to convert Ross to a different position, but it's a moot point after the 24-year-old injured his foot on the second practice rep. Garafolo seems to believe the injury could keep Ross out for an extended time, though the Bengals have not been forthcoming regarding the designation. More information regarding the severity of the injury should come in the following days.

Bengals' John Ross: Ruled out for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Ross hasn't suited up for game action since Week 6. The 2017 first-round pick is now dealing with a foot injury, but even if he does get healthy soon, it seems unlikely that he'll be a notable factor on offense behind Tyler Boyd, A.J. Green and Tee Higgins.

Bengals' John Ross: Shakes off ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (illness) was absent from Wednesday's injury report, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Ross missed Week 8 against Tennessee with the illness, but coming out of the team's bye week it appears he's returned to full strength. The 2017 first-round pick has seen himself slide down the receiver depth chart in Cincinnati, and with the position group led by Tyler Boyd, A.J. Green and Tee Higgins, Ross' return likely won't affect the offense too much.

Bengals' John Ross: Out Week 8 with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (illness) is listed as inactive Week 8 against Tennessee, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

No surprises here, as Ross entered Week 8 with a "doubtful" tag after missing practice sessions both Thursday and Friday. The position group will be led by Tyler Boyd, A.J. Green and Tee Higgins, as has been the case most weeks this season, even if Ross were healthy and active.

Bengals' John Ross: Officially doubtful for Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (illness) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Ross began the week as a full participant in practice, but he was then held out of Thursday's session. It looks as though the 2017 first-round pick, who has already been relegated to a depth role on offense, is trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's contest.

Bengals' John Ross: Clear of illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (illness) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

The 2017 was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Browns with an illness, but he's back in action at practice Wednesday with no limitations. Ross hasn't had much of a role for the Bengals this season, and he reportedly talked to the team earlier in October about being traded.

Bengals' John Ross: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Ross has been an afterthought in the Bengals offense thus far, with the 2017 first-rounder having logged just two catches on seven targets for 17 yards in three games played. The team's wide receiver corps is currently headed by A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins.

Bengals' John Ross: Deemed questionable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals list Ross as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns with an illness, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Ross previously sat out the Bengals' Week 5 loss to Baltimore with a non-COVID-19-related illness, so he could be dealing with a recurrence of the same ailment. Despite his designation, the wideout doesn't appear in danger of missing the Week 7 contest for health reasons, as coach Zac Taylor told Ben Baby of ESPN.com that he expects to full roster to be available Sunday minus cornerback William Jackson (concussion) and running back Joe Mixon (foot), who have already been ruled out. If Ross ends up inactive, it would most likely be the result of a coach's decision rather than because of the illness.

Bengals' John Ross: Wants out of Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross has talked to the Bengals about being traded, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The 2017 first-round pick has yet to find his footing in Cincinnati, largely due to injuries, and he's now nearly halfway through his fourth pro season. Ross was active Sunday against the Colts, marking the first time he'd suited up since Week 2. Per Garafolo, Ross approached the team recently about a trade and wants a fresh start elsewhere. The NFL trade deadline is Nov. 3, which gives the Bengals two weeks to gauge the receiver's trade value.

Bengals' John Ross: Finally active again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross is active for Sunday's conference tilt against the Colts, his first time enjoying that status since the Bengals' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Ross has fallen out of favor with the Bengals' coaching staff, relegated to a healthy scratch on occasion this season. However, Auden Tate is inactive this week, opening a tiny window for Ross to make another impression.

Bengals' John Ross: Cleared of illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (illness) doesn't appear on Wednesday's injury report, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Ross missed the Bengals' Week 5 loss to the Ravens because of an illness, but after sitting out the preceding two games in coach's decisions, he likely would have been inactive even if he was fully healthy. Now that he's shaken the illness, the 2017 first-round pick should be available Sunday against the Colts, and the Bengals could need him to suit up with the health of fellow wideouts A.J. Green (hamstring) or Auden Tate (shoulder) in question for Week 6.

Bengals' John Ross: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

The 2017 first-rounder pick had been a healthy scratch of late, so his Week 5 absence won't have a great impact on the team's Week 5 passing attack. The Bengals' wide receiver corps is currently headed by A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins.

Bengals' John Ross: Doubtful for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Baltimore with an illness, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Ross has missed back-to-back practices due to the illness. The 2017 first-round pick had been a healthy scratch for two straight contests, so even if Ross manages to fully recover before Sunday's game, he may not suit up.

Bengals' John Ross: Takes a seat Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (coach's decision) is inactive Week 3 at Philadelphia, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

This may seem surprising on the surface given the fantasy buzz that Ross has gained in the past, but after going without a catch in Week 2 and seeing his snap count cut in half, the writing was on the wall for a potential scratch. A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd will presumably continue to lead the position group for the Bengals, but the absence of Ross will allow Tee Higgins to draw the start.

Bengals' John Ross: No receptions in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross didn't haul in either of his two targets in Thursday's 35-30 loss to the Browns.

Ross logged just 30 percent of the team's offensive snaps in Week 2, ranking fifth among Bengals wideouts and behind even Mike Thomas. Considering it took just one game for rookie Tee Higgins to secure a top-three role, Ross could be pushed out of the gameplans moving forward.

Bengals' John Ross: Grabs just two passes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross caught two of five targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Chargers.

Ross couldn't replicate last year's Week 1 magic, and this was his lowest yardage total in a single game since 2018. Rookie QB Joe Burrow spread the ball around Sunday, targeting five players five or more times, so it's encouraging that Ross is at least in the mix to begin the season. Ross will look to capitalize on those opportunities in Thursday's matchup against the Browns.

Bengals' John Ross: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ross (arm) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Ross suffered an arm injury in training camp roughly two weeks ago, but he's managed to shed the issue in time to begin the regular season at full health. The 2017 first-round pick is listed wideout behind A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd on Cincinnati's first unofficial depth chart, per Ben Baby of ESPN.com. As such, Ross is seemingly in line to serve as Cincinnati's No. 3 receiver during Sunday's season opener against the Chargers, though Tee Higgins, Auden Tate and Alex Erickson all offer competition for targets.
