Initially, it doesn’t appear to be serious.

UPDATE

John Ross returned to practice, but that arm appears to still be bothering him.


Bengals wide receiver John Ross suffered an injury Wednesday that knocked him out of practice.

Ross reportedly hit the ground hard after getting tangled up on a pass play. He had to go to the sideline to be examined by trainers, though it appears it may not be serious after he gave a thumbs up.

Ross is entering a contract year after the Bengals declined his fifth-year option. A big reason for that is Ross has been unable to stay healthy in his first three years with the Bengals, missing a combined 21 games.

If Ross can stay healthy, he should have a nice season with Joe Burrow running the show now, which could lead to a nice payday next offseason for the former Washington Huskie. It may not be with Cincinnati, especially if A.J. Green eventually signs a long-term contract, but Ross still has bright future ahead of him if he can just stay on the field.

We’ll update this story if any more details come out.
