  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Available for Thursday's game

    Jones (thumb) is active for Thursday night's game against the Ravens.

    Jones, who last saw game action in Week 3, came off IR ahead of Thursday's contest and will provide the Bengals with WR depth behind Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin, with both Tee Higgins (hamstring) and Andrei Iosivas (knee) unavailable. Additionally, the 2023 fourth-rounder will have a chance to resume his punt return role with the team in Week 11.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Activated from injured reserve

    The Bengals activated Jones (thumb) from injured reserve Thursday.

    It paves the way for Jones to play Thursday night against the Ravens. He's officially listed as questionable. If he does suit up, Jones will likely regain return man duties and see a sprinkling of snaps on offense with Tee Higgins (hamstring) sidelined again.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Questionable for Thursday

    Jones (thumb) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game at Baltimore.

    Jones was a full participant at practice all week, so it would be somewhat surprising not to see him activated from the injured reserve list for Week 11. In the first three games of the season, Jones drew two targets in just three offensive snaps, returning one catch for six yards.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Won't play Week 10

    Jones (thumb) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Texans, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The Bengals designated Jones to return from IR on Wednesday. Although the team will be without Tee Higgins, (hamstring) plus Ja'Marr Chase (back) is listed as questionable, Jones will wait at least another week before making his return. Cincinnati called up wide receivers Shed Jackson and Stanley Morgan from the practice squad Saturday.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Questionable versus Houston

    Jones (thumb) is questionable for Sunday's Week 10 game against the Texans, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    Jones remains on injured reserve but is eligible to return this week against Houston. With Tee Higgins (hamstring) out, the Bengals could feel more pressure to get Jones active, but Cincinnati should be in decent shape with Ja'Marr Chase (back, questionable), Tyler Boyd, Trenton Irwin and Andrei Iosivas, as long as Chase does indeed play.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Nearing return

    Jones (thumb) was designated to return from IR on Wednesday.

    Jones will now have a 21-day window to practice with the team before he needs to be added to the 53-man roster. However, the 2023 fourth-round selection could return as soon as Sunday against the Texans. Although he only played three snaps on offense in three contests before he suffered the thumb injury, the 25-year-old was operating as the team's punt returner, a role he'll work to get back once he retakes the field.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Could be back Week 10

    Bengals head coach Zac Tayor said Jones (thumb) has a chance to return from injured reserve Week 10 against the Texans, but the receiver won't have his 21-day practice window opened before Sunday's game against the Bills, Ben Baby of reports.

    After spending the requisite four games on IR, Jones is first eligible for activation this week, but the rookie fourth-round draft pick out of Purdue apparently isn't yet healthy enough to get back on the field. He didn't contribute much on offense when healthy over the first three weeks of the season, but Jones showed off his shiftiness on special teams, scoring a punt-return touchdown Week 2.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Misses another practice

    Jones (thumb) didn't practice Thursday, Kelsey Conway of USA Today reports.

    Jones has missed his second consecutive day of practice as he continues to deal with a thumb injury. Cincinnati's return man has accumulated 150 yards and one touchdown on eight returns through the first three games of the season. If the Purdue product were to miss Sunday's game against Tennessee, Trenton Irwin would likely assume punt-return duties.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Lands on IR

    The Bengals placed Jones (thumb) on injured reserve Friday.

    Jones, who suffered a thumb injury during Monday's win over the Rams, will thus miss at least four games, meaning the earliest he could be back in action is Nov. 5 against the Bills. While the 2023 fourth-round pick out of Purdue has been limited to one catch for six yards in three game to date, his absence represents a hit to the Bengals' special teams, as Jones has been serving as the team's primary punt returner.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Ruled out against Titans

    Jones (thumb) won't play Sunday against the Titans, Ben Baby of reports.

    Jones will be sidelined for the first time in his young NFL career. The rookie wide receiver has just one catch for six yards on two targets through three games, but Jones has provided a spark in the return game, as he took a punt return to the house from 81 yards out in Week 2. With Jones sidelined in Tennessee, Chris Evans or Trayveon Williams will likely return kickoffs, while Trenton Irwin handles punt returns.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Estimated as non-participant

    Jones (thumb) was listed as non-participant for Wednesday's estimated practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    Jones had been expected to open Week 4 prep as a limited participant, but he ended up not taking part in the Bengals' walk-through session. The rookie receiver out of Purdue has played just three offensive snaps through the Bengals' first three games but has been an asset on special teams as a punt returner, taking one back 81 yards for a touchdown Week 2.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Working through hand injury

    Jones is expected to be a limited participant in practice Wednesday due to a hand injury, Ben Baby of reports.

    Jones likely suffered the injury in the team's 19-16 win over the Rams on Monday. The severity of the hand injury is still unknown, but Jones' ability to get on the field in some fashion Wednesday is at least a positive sign. The rookie receiver has been limited to one six-yard reception across two targets through his first three games, though he did return a punt for a touchdown in Week 2.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Ends team return TD drought

    Jones returned a punt for an 81-yard touchdown in the Bengals' 27-24 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

    The rookie fourth-round pick out of Purdue has yet to line up at receiver through his first two NFL games, but he became the first Bengals player to score a touchdown in 2023 when he went untouched on a punt return to tie the game early in the second quarter. Jones' 81-yard score represented the first punt returned for a touchdown by a Bengals player since the 2012 season. Jones should continue to maintain a key role as a return man throughout his rookie season, but his opportunities on offense will likely be few and far between while all of Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd are healthy.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Steps up as pass catcher

    Jones recorded four receptions on six targets for 36 yards in Friday's 13-13 tie against the Falcons in preseason action.

    Jones is expected to see the field primarily as a special-teams contributor early in his career, though he got the opportunity to show his prowess as a pass catcher Friday. He largely delivered in short areas of the field and was a reliable target for both Trevor Siemian and Jake Browning. Jones did also commit an offensive pass interference penalty, leaving him with an uneven offensive performance through two preseason appearances.

  • Bengals' Charlie Jones: Back from shoulder injury

    Jones (shoulder) returned to practice Monday, Kelsey Conway of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Jones suffered a shoulder injury Thursday but has regained health after a short absence. The rookie fourth-round pick out of Purdue is slated to make his NFL debut when the Bengals take on the Packers in preseason play Friday.
