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.
