Bengals Excited To See Debut Of John Ross

Published

on

The Cincinnati Bengals and their fans will finally get to see rookie wide receiver John Ross in action.

Ross, the ninth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, returned to practice after recovering from shoulder surgery.

Ross doesn’t have a lot of time left in the preseason, so it is still unclear if the rookie will be able to take the field for one of the Bengals’ remaining preseason games.

But Ross’ teammates are excited to see what he can do in a live game.

“I do, yeah,” Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton said about seeing Ross play.

“I think this will be a chance for people to see him for the first time and for him to get some first game action, which will be good for him.”

“He’s going to bring something different,” said Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick.

“He’s pretty much the only thing that we’re missing, someone who can stretch the other side of the field, because when you look at our guys they’re all kind of similar. When you look at him there’s a difference and the difference is his speed.

I look at that guy (as if) he’s going to be a big major key.”

It’s logical that if Ross were to see playing time during the preseason it would be during the Bengals’ game against the Washington Redskins, their 3rd preseason game.

Jags’ Leonard Fournette, Jalen Ramsey, Others Remain Questionable

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a number of players on the mend, and running back Leonard Fournette and cornerback Jalen Ramsey are both questionable for Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco.

Fournette and Ramsey aren’t alone, as running back T.J. Yeldon, cornerback D.J. Hayden, and right guard A.J. Cann are all questionable as well.

Fournette will likely be a gametime decision.

“We’ve been playing a lot of tough games,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “Players are doing the best job they can to get themselves ready to go, but we played a home opener in New York. We played a home opener here. Now we’ve got a divisional opponent.

“When you look at it a lot of teams are going through the same thing, just trying to keep everybody as healthy as they possibly can.”

The Cincinnati Bengals will be without rookie center Billy Price as he is dealing with a lower left leg injury, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Paul Dehner Jr.

“Finally figured out what it was this morning,” Price said. “Last couple days was just trying to figure out what it is and what’s the plan going forward. They thought it was an ankle now turned to a foot, there wasn’t any swelling and it wasn’t Lisfranc, so just thankful for that. That’s great news.”

Price will be re-evaluated in two weeks by doctors.

The New England Patriots signed wide receiver Corey Coleman to their practice squad earlier this week, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

New England originally signed Coleman to its 53-man roster last week, but he was cut when the Patriots acquired Josh Gordon in a trade with the Cleveland Browns. The Pats then opted to add Coleman to their practice squad.

Coleman is close to being out of the NFL completely after his cut from the Buffalo Bills, following his bottoming out with the Cleveland Browns.
