Bengals Wide Receiver Jordan Shipley Expects To Be Ready For Training Camp

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer and Geoff Hobson with Bengals.com, Bengals wide receiver Jordan Shipley ran routes with quarterback Andy Dalton last week. Normally something like this might otherwise feel meaningless, but Shipley suffered a torn ACL and MCL during Cincinnati's week two game against the Denver Broncos, ending his sophomore season with four receptions for 14 yards receiving. The year prior during his rookie season, Shipley led all AFC rookie wide receivers with 52 receptions and 600 yards receiving.

After suffering his season-ending injury, the Bengals initially relied on Andre Caldwell in the slot, though he was eventually replaced by a combination of Andrew Hawkins and Ryan Whalen, depending on the play. Hawkins generally took part in more gadget-oriented plays, such as bubble screens whereas Whalen was the more prototypical slot receiver.

According to Joe Reedy, Shipley hopes to be on the field for OTAs but will definitely return for training camp.
