The Cincinnati Bengals appear to be turning the corner after winning three of their last four games, and getting back to .500 during the 2022 NFL campaign. In a seemingly wide-open AFC North, the Bengals will have to keep stringing together wins in order to jump the Baltimore Ravens, their only real threat to a division crown.

That starts with Week 7, when the Bengals host the Atlanta Falcons in a winnable clash. Staying healthy will be a major key.

Fortunately, head coach Zac Taylor shared an exciting update on wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase's Week 7 status.

Taylor confirmed his stud wideout will play against Atlanta despite popping up on the injury report during the week's practices. Chase logged a couple of limited participant practices this week due to a nagging issue with his hip.

Thankfully, Chase has been fully cleared for Week 7 and will look to continue his impressive streak. The second-year wideout exploded for 132 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns against the New Orleans Saints last week -- both season-highs.

As of now, the Bengals enter this tilt with the Falcons as solid 6.5-point home favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
