The Bengals will return a weapon against the Steelers

Tee Higgins is recovering from a hamstring injury, and without Joe Burrow, the Cincinnati Bengals offense is already a short-handed machine. With Jake Browning taking center, they appear to be getting one weapon back: Rookie wideout Andrei Iosivas.

Iosivas was out against the Ravens but had at least a target in the five games prior. He has two touchdowns on the season as well.

That said, this update comes from Charlie Clifford. Iosivas has been hampered by a knee injury over the last week.

Iosivas was drafted with the 206th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft out of Princeton. The 24-year-old stands 6-foot-3 and has been incorporated well into the Bengals offense over the last two months. He has four receptions and 23 receiving yards on the season.

Despite having just four receptions, Iosivas has two touchdowns as well. Without a clear note on whether or not Higgins will be available against the Steelers on Sunday, having Iosivas on the field should provide some relief for Bengals fans.
