Tee Higgins out at Bengals practice due to illness

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins did not practice on Wednesday due to an illness, per head coach Zac Taylor.

What It Means:

Higgins should be able to recover in time to play in the Wild Card Round against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night. Higgins was targeted seven times in the Bengals' regular-season finale against the Ravens, but he only managed a single seven-yard reception. In the Bengals' Week 5 matchup with Baltimore, Higgins was limited to just 10 snaps because of an ankle injury.

numberFire's models project Higgins for 7.4 targets, 4.8 receptions, and 63.7 yards in the Wild Card Round. The Bengals were No. 12 in the league in FanDuel points allowed per game to wide receivers this season and they finished with a top-10 pass defense in our adjusted team rankings.
