Summary

The former ninth overall pick, Ross headlines the reserve receivers in Cincinnati. His inability to stay healthy, though, headlines his career resume. Ross' speed is tantalizing and will continue to give him a chance, even as his body continues to let him down. There were reports that the team shopped him for a trade this offseason, but those were denied by the organization. The role as third receiver is ideal for Ross, as it should allow him to see the field often but not on every down. His deep speed will always demand defensive attention, something that could benefit his teammates as much as Ross himself. (August 9)

Bengals | John Ross may return next week (Mon Aug 19, 06:59 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross (hamstring) could return to practice as early as Sunday, Aug. 25, according to head coach Zac Taylor.

Our View: Ross can get open deep and take the top off the defense when healthy...it's just the staying healthy part that has been a big problem for him as a pro. Taylor said he believes Ross may be able to play in Week 1 if he gets two weeks of practice.
