As expected, Ja’Marr Chase didn’t need long to shake off the drop issues that plagued his last few days.
After a trio of drops during a preseason game and some other notable drops during a practice over the weekend, Chase got back to being his usual self on Monday.
ESPN’s Ben Baby explained one of the big highlights of the day: “Play of the day: In red zone drills at the end of practice, Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase leaps, twists his torso and plucks a ball out of the air for a TD inside the near right pylon. Got big cheers from the players.”
Some of Chase’s improvement just comes down to extra work — he’s spent the last two days at training camp putting in extra work with the quarterbacks on the side when he didn’t need to.

There was never a big reason to worry about a rough patch for Chase, as that’s what the summer and preseason is all about — and he didn’t need long to shake off the issues.
