Higgins was visibly shaken up after absorbing a hit by Pittsburgh Steelers defender Minkah Fitzpatrick during the second quarter. He was quickly ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest due to a concussion.

This opens up the door for Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd to get more involved in the passing attack, although the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has harassed Joe Burrow early on. Burrow threw a trio of first-half interceptions and the Steelers lead 17-6 at halftime.

Higgins caught two receptions for 27 receiving yards before heading to the locker room. Fantasy managers will now need to keep a close eye on his status ahead of Week 2, given how this type of injury features a unique recovery timeline for every player.

The third-year wideout entered the week as WR17 in The Duel's Week 1 PPR rankings.
