Tee Higgins injured his hamstring in practice on Wednesday, making his status for Week 10 uncertain.
Today, Ian Rapoport reported that Higgins is expected to miss this Sunday’s matchup with the Houston Texans. He will be week-to-week moving forward.
#Bengals WR Tee Higgins, who did not practice today after injuring his hamstring in practice yesterday, is expected to miss this Sunday's game vs the #Texans, sources say. He'll be evaluated on a week-to-week basis going forward. pic.twitter.com/LTfChAXOA6— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 9, 2023
It’s an unfortunate setback for a wide receiver who is having the worst year of his career and has already missed time following a rib injury against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4.

Will Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals still have enough firepower to withstand a dynamite Houston offense headed by rookie sensation CJ Stroud?
