Higgins (illness) returned to a full practice Thursday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: After missing Wednesday's practice, Higgins' return to a full session Thursday paves the way for the wideout to be available for Sunday's playoff opener against the Ravens. Higgins is coming off a one-catch effort in the Bengals' Week 18 win over Baltimore, but he's a bounce-back candidate this weekend, giving that he averaged 4.6 catches and 64.3 receiving yards while recording seven TDs over the course of 16 regular-season outings.

Higgins (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Wilcox played 27 of the Bengals' 65 snaps on offense and went without a target in Sunday's 27-16 win over the Ravens.
Analysis: Hayden Hurst settled back in as Cincinnati's top tight end in his return from a three-game absence, resulting in Wilcox settling for a downturn in playing time as the No. 2 option at the position. While Hurst was sidelined, Wilcox offered only marginal fantasy value, as he cobbled together a 10-79-1 receiving line on 11 targets during that three-game stretch.

Williams played all 21 of his snaps on special teams Sunday in the Bengals' 27-16 win over the Ravens.
Analysis: Williams was active for the Bengals' final seven games of the regular season, but he didn't receive any touches on offense over the last three of those contests while Cincinnati had both of Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine available out of the backfield. The Texas A&M product has, however, overtaken Chris Evans as Cincinnati's kickoff returner. Williams brought back two kickoffs for 48 yards against Baltimore to bring his average up to 22.3 yards per runback over 16 attempts during the regular season.

Morgan played five snaps on offense and 21 on special teams in Sunday's 27-16 win over the Ravens, accruing no statistics during the contest.
Analysis: Morgan saw snaps on offense during all 14 of his appearances of the regular season, but never more than 10 on any occasion. He drew just one incomplete target over that stretch to finish without a reception for the season. Morgan will likely continue to see most of his playing time on special teams during Cincinnati's upcoming playoff run.
