Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase is supposed to miss four to six weeks due to a hip injury, sources told Adam Schefter on Thursday.
The Bengals star didn’t rehearse Thursday and was listed on the team’s injury report with a hip issue.
Chase first experienced the issue in the team’s Week 6 win over the New Orleans Saints. He was restricted at practice in front of Sunday’s success over the Atlanta Falcons in which he seemed to pull up at one point toward the finish of a route. He completed the game and declined to go into particulars about the injury when he met with reporters after the game.
Chase saw an expert Wednesday as he looks for additional responses about the injury, sources told Schefter.
Gotten some information about Chase on Thursday, Bengals coach Zac Taylor said the second-year player out of LSU was managing a touch of irritation and the circumstance would be checked on a day-to-day basis.
In light of the timeline of the injury recuperation, Chase could be put on injured reserve, which would keep him out for at least a month.
In seven games this season, Chase has 47 catches for 605 yards and six touchdowns.
News that Chase could be gone to injured reserve was first revealed by The Wrightway Sports Network.
