The Cincinnati Bengals will be without their star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase for at least the next month. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Chase is sidelined with a hip injury.

He is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. Schefter said that Chase is “a prime candidate for injured reserve.”

With Chase, the Bengals had a potent receiver core. However, with the second-year player sidelined, the team will be forced to be a run-based attack until he returns.

Chase visited a hip specialist on Wednesday, according to Schefter. The Athletic’s Paul Dehner has reported that Chase has a hip flexor strain.

The 22-year-old receiver has appeared in seven games this season. When he does not play against the Cleveland Browns on Halloween, it will be the first NFL game he has missed in his career.

Chase may return on December 4th against the Kansas City Chiefs. Or either on December 11th against the Cleveland Browns or on the road on December 18th against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 5th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft leads the Bengals in receiving yards. He has had 47 receptions for 605 yards and six touchdowns thus far this season.

Chase had back-to-back games with 130 receiving yards before this injury. He had 130 receiving yards in a win against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.

The week before in a win against the New Orleans Saints, he had 132 receiving yards.

He has 150 more yards than both Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, who have 455 yards. Joe Burrow will have to lean on these two receivers and the others on the roster to pick up Chase’s absence.
