Bengals WR John Ross cleared for contact

On Monday, the Bengals took a big step with the first-round pick. WR John Ross was cleared to participate in contact drills and was running with the rest of the team through 11-on-11.

Ross won’t be found digging a safety out in a run game drill just yet, but he’s closer to making his Bengals’ debut.

“It’s a process,” said Ross, who previously only worked with routes against air. “I just want to take everything slowly, I don’t want to rush everything. I don’t think it’s imperative for me to come back right now and play Saturday. I think it’s important for me to be ready for Week 1.”

Fantasy Impact: 

The story went on to say Ross said it’s important to him to participate in a preseason game to get a feel for game speed before hosting Baltimore on Sept. 10, but acknowledges he’s following doctor’s orders. No call has been made on if he will participate in one of the preseason games at this point.
