NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Tee Higgins returned to the game with just over 10 minutes left in the third quarter. It wasn’t at the beginning of the drive. Later on the drive, he drew a defensive pass interference on a play that would have been an easy touchdown on 3rd-and-9.


The Cincinnati Bengals came into today’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs worried if wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase would be able to even play. Now, they may be without Tee Higgins instead after he exited the game in the first half with a hamstring injury.

Higgins caught a 19-yard reception for a first down on the Bengal's first drive that went on for over eight minutes. It is hard to tell if the injury happened on that play or later on.

He is questionable to return, according to the team.
