Bengals WR John Ross expected to miss season opener vs. Ravens

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals appear to be loaded with young talent on the offensive side of the football, but it looks like they may be missing some of that talent in their home opener versus Baltimore:

The news doesn’t come as a shock for the Bengals or for Ross, who was drafted into the league with injury issues. Still, it’s a blow to a Bengals offense that has potential to be one of the more explosive units in the NFL assuming they’re offensive line can keep Andy Dalton upright.

For Baltimore, it’s a good sign that they won’t have to deal with Ross’ potentially historic speed in his first NFL game. With Joe Flacco mercifully re-entering the lineup, this game is looking more and more manageable for Baltimore, the closer we get to Sunday.
