Tee Higgins, Jessie Bates miss practice Tuesday

Michael Holley was adamant the Bengals made an error selecting Ja'Marr Chase in the 2021 NFL Draft. However, after the rookie has recorded four TDs in his first three weeks, Holley gives credit where it's due.

The Bengals practiced without four players Tuesday.

Receiver Tee Higgins (shoulder), cornerback Chidobe Awuzie (groin), safety Jessie Bates (neck) and offensive lineman Xavier Su’a-Filo (knee) continued their rehab ahead of the Thursday night game against the Jaguars.

Bates has started every game since the Bengals drafted him in the second round of the 2018 draft, recording 22 total tackles so far in 2021. Higgins has played 18 games in his two-year career with last week’s game the only one he has missed.

The Bengals upgraded offensive tackle Riley Reiff (ankle) to a limited participant.

Linebacker Markus Bailey (hamstring), cornerback Darius Phillips (hand) and cornerback Trae Waynes (hamstring) were full participants after being estimated as limited Monday.
