The Cincinnati Bengals were dealt some grave injury news after Week 7, as initial reports claimed star wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase could miss the rest of the season with a serious hip injury. Thankfully further testing showed Chase would be able to return without an IR stint, but there's no concrete timeline as the talented wideout continues to rehab.
Now a potential target date for his return has been revealed heading into Week 10.
Malik Wright of TWSN, who was one of the first to initially report on Chase's hip injury, said Monday the "realistic" recovery timeline would see Chase be back in action for Week 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Wright added this Sunday is unlikely, and Week 12 is "up in the air."
This at least provides a rought estimate on Chase's return for Bengals fans. Though Cincinnati would love to see him sooner rather than later, being cautious with his recovery is the best route to take with the playoffs approaching.
The second-year pro began this season with a bang, recording 47 receptions, 605 yards and 6 touchdowns over the first seven games. He had a legit chance to set career highs across the board following his record-setting rookie campaign, but this injury has slowed down his torrid production.
Hopefully the LSU product doesn't experience any setbacks in the coming weeks and can get back on the field for a playoff push down the stretch. The 5-4 Bengals are currently +2800 (T-10) to win the championship, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest Super Bowl odds.
