The Cincinnati Bengals' offense has looked very good so far in the first half against the Kansas City Chiefs in their Week 17 battle, but things will be a bit harder knowing that wide receiver Tee Higgins is currently on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Officials have stated Higgins is "questionable" to return to the game.

It's been a frustrating season for Higgins so far this year due to injuries already and it looks like his season might finish the same way. In 2023, Higgins has played in only 11 games coming into Sunday and he's been unable to finish even some of those, especially dealing with a rib injury earlier in the year.

Higgins is scheduled to hit free agency for the Bengals next spring and the team will face a significant decision on how to approach the potential loss of such an important target on one of the NFL's bright young offenses.

Higgins has 41 catches on the season for 637 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns. He has 24 touchdowns and 3,665 receiving yards in his four seasons in Cincinnati.
