Bengals Wide Receiver Out With A Concussion

The Cincinnati Bengals first half has been a disaster in Pittsburgh, with multiple interceptions to the fantastic Steelers defence hindering any type of progress, and if that wasn't bad enough, star wide receiver Tee Higgins has now been ruled out for the rest of the game with a concussion. Higgins was one of the bright spots for Cincinnati in the first half, as he managed 2 catches for 27 yards while the whole offence could muster just 6 points.

It's going to be even harder for them now, as Higgins is out with a concussion after being evaluated in the locker room, and to turn it around here for Cincinnati would be a huge deal, as they've looked dreadful so far, with the Steelers defence flying all over the field. 

Ja'Marr Chase has 58 yards receiving, and if the Bengals are to make any noise here in Week 1, he and Joe Burrow will have to continue hooking up, as the confidence has to be low right now given all of the turnovers. One of several divisional matchups in Week 1, this one has been interesting to watch so far, and if Burrow can clean it up in the second half, they'll have a game on their hands, but it will have to be without stud Tee Higgins.
