Bengals receivers can’t catch a break right now.

The Bengals are already without A.J. Green for the next 6-8 weeks. Now, it appears they’ll be without John Ross for another week or two.

According to Bengals.com’s Geoff Hobson, Ross’ hamstring injury could sideline him for two weeks. The issue was thought to be just tightness in the hamstring that would only cost Ross a few days, but now it sounds like it’s a little more serious.

For what it’s worth, Ross was seen working on the rehab field at Monday’s training camp session.

If that timetable were to hold up, Ross would probably miss the Bengals’ first preseason game, which comes Aug. 10 against the Chiefs in Kansas City. He would hopefully return in time for the second preseason game on Aug. 15 at Washington.

Ross can’t seem to satch a break when it comes to injuries, but after enduring several of them in college, including a torn ACL, it’s really not surprising to see he can’t hold up in the pros.

With Green out for a while, the Bengals really need Ross to step up, so hopefully he can get back to practice sooner rather than later.
