With his report of Chase resuming practice, it shows the star receiver is making a quick recovery.
The return to practice means there’s a potential for him to return to action against the Tennessee Titans.
While the Bengals are holding up well without him, having him back gives their offense another weapon.
With Chase being a favorite target for quarterback Joe Burrow, there’s no doubt the LSU product is excited for Chase’s return.
Chase was having a solid season prior to his injury.
In seven games this season, Chase had 47 receptions for 605 yards and six touchdowns.
Had he continued without injury, he was on pace to pass his rookie season numbers in receptions, touchdowns, and receiving yards.
However, with seven games remaining, he can only hope to keep up with the production he had before his injury.
While he works his way back into the lineup, the Bengals are working their way into a playoff spot.
If they want to return to the playoffs, they need Chase back at 100% and dominating defenses once again.
