CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Bengals could be without one of quarterback Joe Burrow’s main offensive weapons for up to six weeks, according to reports from NFL insiders.
Wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase is suffering from a hip injury that could sideline him for four to six weeks, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Chase first suffered the injury in the game against the New Orleans Saints Oct. 16. But he aggravated it in last week’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, Schefter reports.
Chase appeared injured in the first half of last Sunday’s game, but played in the second half of the Bengals’ victory.
Chase could be placed on injured reserve, which means he would miss the next five games including Monday’s against Cleveland and the following games against Carolina, Pittsburgh, and Tennessee. The Bengals’ bye week is Week 10, between the Carolina and Pittsburgh games.
If healthy, Chase would return for the Bengals’ home game against the Kansas City Chiefs December 4.
Chase is the Bengals’ leading receiver in receptions with 47, yards with 605, and touchdowns with six.
