Bengals: Tee Higgins’ injury gives Auden Tate a deserved chance

The Cincinnati Bengals may have lost one of their wide receivers to injury for the time being, but Auden Tate is here to save the day.

Tee Higgins’ shoulder injury has him listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and after missing practices this week, it seems extremely unlikely he’ll play.

The Bengals will miss Higgins’ consistent production and physicality, but wide receiver isn’t one of their weaknesses this season, and good thing they have Auden Tate to fill his position.

So far in 2021, the Bengals’ offense hasn’t quite lived up to expectations, especially after a deflating loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 2.
