Kansas City Chiefs safety Justin Reid doesn't seem to be too familiar with the Cincinnati Bengals' offensive weapons ahead of their Week 13 rematch of last year's AFC Championship.

But he definitely thinks one of them is "not the best blocker" and insisted that he's "gonna lock him down - straight up."

"They have (No.) 88 - Higbee?" Reid said. "No, it's not - Higbee is with the Rams. What's his name? It is (Tee) Higgins. Higbee, Higgins. They're gonna have him back - he's a very talented receiver - more of a finesse type of guy. Um, not the best blocker. I'm gonna lock him down, you know? Straight up. We're gonna have to play our best game and go out and do it."

No. 88 is tight end Hayden Hurst. Higgins isn't coming back from anything but 262 receiving yards over the Bengals' past two wins. The Bengals hope to have receiver Ja'Marr Chase back.
