Ja'Marr Chase did the heavy lifting for the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14 after both Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins left the contest quickly with injuries. He posted an impressive 10-catch, 159-yard and 1-touchdown day in their absences.

Tyler Boyd Injury Update

Unfortunately, the Bengals revealed a disappointing update on Boyd after this win over the Cleveland Browns.

According to Tom Pelissero, Boyd has been officially diagnosed with a dislocated finger and "could miss a week or two." He does clarify this "shouldn't be an extended absence" and the rate of healing and Boyd's pain levels "will dictate when he returns."

It's a mixed bag of news on Boyd. While missing the talented wideout for multiple weeks hurts, he'll be back before the season's end and Cincinnati's Week 14 win put them in a solid position in the AFC North standings.

Tee Higgins Injury Update

Higgins exited the contest after tweaking a hamstring issue he's been dealing with, playing in just 1 snap. It's unclear his exact timeline but there have been no reports of a serious injury.

For now, the Bengals own +110 odds to win the AFC North. They sit just behind the Baltimore Ravens at -135 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
