Ross posted 7-158-2, 4-112-1, 2-22-0 and 3-36-0 receiving lines in Weeks 1-4 before breaking his collarbone and landing on injured reserve.
He has been back practicing with the team since mid-November and is one of two Bengals designated to return from IR. His field-stretching ability should help open up the underneath areas of the field for Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon among others.
In danger of being labeled a mega draft bust before his scorching hot start to the 2019 season, Ross cannot seem to catch a break with regards to injuries but did show a lot of promise in those first four games.
