Malone wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Malone hasn't played in a game since Week 8 against the Buccaneers, where he played 11 total snaps. The Tennessee product was listed as questionable going into Week 14, but was ultimately ruled out. Though Malone is listed as a depth receiver, being healthy is a first step to gaining a bigger role in the offense.
Malone was listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis but will miss his fifth straight game. The 22-year-old has been unable to take advantage of A.J. Green's (foot) absence, leaving Alex Erickson and Auden Tate to serve as depth options at wide receiver for the Bengals.
Malone has missed four straight games due to a lingering hamstring injury, but he appears to have a real shot of retaking the field Week 14. The second-year wideout could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers. If Malone is able to suit up, he could see an uptick in offensive snaps in the absence of A.J. Green (foot).
