Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson was excused from team activities for the second straight day on Friday. When asked if Simpson would play in Sunday’s game against San Francisco, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said he is still assessing his options.
"We’re still taking to people and figuring out what the best thing is for Jerome," Lewis said. "Any decisions I make on it are going to be based on what people recommend is the best thing for him."
Regardless of what the Bengals decide, fantasy owners shouldn't plan on using Simpson this week.
