The Bengals have a number of key players dealing with injuries, but most of those guys are expected to return in the coming weeks. One player expected to make his 2014 debut in Cincinnati's next game is Marvin Jones.
The third-year receiver was poised for a big year after catching 10 touchdowns in 2013, but a broken foot sidelined him for the past two months.
Thankfully, an early Bye Week may allow Jones to return in Week 5, having missed just three games. Jones will likely be active against the New England Patriots for the Bengals' first primetime game of the season.
That belief was reinforced Sunday when Jones went through pre-game warmups, prior to Cincinnati's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Jones said the week prior to this game that "we'll see" when asked about a Week 5 return.
