Higgins was in for 60 total plays in the team’s 35-30 Thursday night Week 2 loss to the Cleveland Browns. He registered his first career catch in Week 2, which was an 18-yard reception along the sideline late in the second quarter.
The story said Higgins finished the game with three catches for 35 yards. His increased playing time is attributed to becoming more comfortable in Zac Taylor’s offense. Perhaps something to note in the story: Higgins was taking individual receiver reps behind A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd in Monday’s practice. He could soon emerge as the team’s third best wide receiver, the story said.
