Tee Higgins, Back at practice Friday

Higgins (shoulder) is suited up for Friday's practice, Ben Baby of reports.

Analysis: Higgins sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday, so it's a good sign to see him back on the field Friday, even if he's only a limited participant. It remains unclear whether the 22-year-old will be able to avoid an injury designation, but he should have a chance to play Sunday at Pittsburgh.

Alex Erickson, Makes long catch

Erickson caught his only target for 25 yards in Thursday night's 24-9 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Erickson handled his usual return duties, taking back two punts for 17 yards, but the veteran also featured on six offensive plays. That involvement helped Erickson make his first catch as a Panther, setting the team up for its second score with his red-zone entering gain Thursday. Although it's unlikely Erickson will factor into the offense much on a week-to-week basis, his contribution in Carolina's latest win should keep him in the mix for occasional snaps.

Tee Higgins, Misses practice again

Higgins (shoulder) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

Analysis: Back-to-back DNP's to start the week puts the focus on what, if anything, Higgins is able to do at practice Friday. If he's out or limited this weekend, more WR targets would be freed up for Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd, while either Auden Tate or Mike Thomas would be candidates to see added complementary snaps in Cincinnati's Week 3 passing game.

Giovani Bernard, Another two catches Sunday

Bernard did not record a carry but secured both targets for 16 yards in the Buccaneers' 48-25 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Bernard wasn't called upon in the running game for the second time in as many contests to open the season, but he once again filled a modest role as a third-down/two-minute back over six snaps from scrimmage. The veteran is likely to furnish many similar stat lines to those of his first two games as long as the starting duo of Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones remain healthy.

Tee Higgins, Dealing with injury

Higgins missed Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Coach Zac Taylor didn't elaborate on Higgins' injury earlier Wednesday when he revealed that the wideout would miss practice. There was no sign of injury in the Week 2 box score, as Higgins caught six of a team-high 10 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown while playing 91 percent of offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bears. He'll face the Steelers this weekend if he's healthy enough to play, while either Auden Tate or Mike Thomas will step up to a top-three role if Higgins is out.
