Cincinnati Bengals: Adding Wide Receiver Reinforcements for Sunday
The Cincinnati Bengals will active practice squad receivers Stanley Morgan and Shedrick Jackson to the 53-man roster for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans. Morgan has spent his entire five-year NFL career with the Cincinnati Bengals. He has registered five receptions for 29 yards and no scores in 49 games. However, he is mainly a special team player. Stanley has played nearly 900 special teams snaps in five seasons, compared to just 373 snaps on offense. The Nebraska product has yet to play on offense this season.
Meanwhile, Jackson has never played in an NFL game. The 24-year-old went undrafted after playing with the Auburn Tigers until 2022. Jackson played five seasons in the SEC, recording 66 receptions for 874 yards and one touchdown.

The Bengals will be without Tee Higgins for Sunday’s home tilt. The 24-year-old has 27 receptions for 328 yards and two scores in seven games. It’s a particularly tough blow for the Bengals, as Higgins is fresh off an eight-reception, 110-yard game in a 24-18 win over the Buffalo Bills.
Fellow wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase could play but heads into the weekend with a questionable tag for Sunday. The two-time Pro-Bowler has posted 64 receptions for 697 yards and four scores in eight games. He has scored four times in the last four games.
