Ja’Marr Chase injury update: WR expected to play vs. Texans

After a morning workout, it sounds like Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase will suit up against the Houston Texans.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Chase “did what was necessary in his warmups and will go.”

After being listed as questionable with a back injury on the final injury report, Chase needed to show trainers he was fully functional before getting the go-ahead to be active against the Texans.

Chase had an MRI that came back clean earlier in the week due to a back injury suffered during a bad fall on a deep-ball attempt from Joe Burrow during last week’s win over the Bills.

Even if Chase isn’t 100 percent, his presence on the field will be a big boon for an offense already missing Tee Higgins.
