Higgins (hamstring/ankle) brought in all three targets for 36 yards in the Bengals' 34-31 overtime win over the Jaguars on Monday night.
Higgins was relatively quiet in his first opportunity to work with interim starter Jake Browning, but he was able to make it through the long night unscathed after a three-game absence. The fourth-year pro also contributed a key 11-yard catch on third down during the Bengals' game-winning drive in overtime, putting a positive cap on an otherwise quiet night. With his first game with his new signal-caller now under his belt, Higgins could be even more productive in a Week 14 home matchup against an inconsistent Titans defense.

Higgins (hamstring/ankle) was listed as a full practice participant Friday.
After returning to a limited practice Thursday, Higgins -- who has missed three straight games -- returned to a full session Friday, which sets the stage for the wideout to return to action Monday night against the Jaguars. Prior to being sidelined, Higgins compiled a 27/328/2 receiving line on 51 targets through seven games. In his looming return to the lineup, Higgins should reclaim a key role in the Bengals' WR corps, but his fantasy upside could take a hit now that he'll be catching passes from QB Jake Browning instead of Joe Burrow, who is on IR after wrist surgery.
The Bengals listed Higgins as a limited practice participant Thursday due to hamstring and ankle injuries.
Higgins was back on the practice field for the first time since Nov. 8, after the hamstring issue had kept him from playing in any of the Bengals' last three games. Though the listed ankle injury is a new one for Higgins, the wideout said Thursday that he doesn't expect either health concern to keep him from playing Monday in Jacksonville, according to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site. The Bengals will wait and see if Higgins can upgrade to full practice participation Friday or Saturday before deciding whether he'll carry an injury designation into the Week 13 contest.
Higgins (hamstring) was on the field in full uniform for Thursday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
Higgins hadn't practiced in any capacity since Nov. 8, when he was listed as a limited participant for that session before being listed on the injury report as a non-participant for the Bengals' next eight practices. He's missed three straight games along the way, but after getting back on the field Thursday, Higgins is taking a step toward a potential return to action this Monday against the Jaguars. The extent of Higgins' practice participation will be revealed later Thursday, but if he's able to take full reps at some point within the next three days, he should get the green light to play Week 13. If available in Jacksonville, Higgins will be on the receiving end of passes from new starting quarterback Jake Browning for the first time, as Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending wrist injury Week 11 while Higgins was sidelined.
Coach Zac Taylor said that Higgins (hamstring) has a chance to return to action next Monday at Jacksonville, Kelsey Conway of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "I think so," Taylor relayed. "We'll see what we can get out of him this week as it goes."
Higgins has missed three games since hurting his hamstring in a Nov. 8 practice. With the extra day between Sunday's loss to the Steelers and the upcoming contest, the Bengals won't reconvene for practice until Thursday, at which point the ensuing injury report will reveal if he was able to log any reps. If he does so, Higgins will take the first step toward playing again, but until that happens, Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin will be the primary options at wide receiver for quarterback Jake Browning.
Higgins (hamstring) isn't slated to play Sunday against the Steelers, Ben Baby of ESPN.com and Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer report.
With Higgins on track to be unavailable for a third straight game, Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin are in line to lead the Bengals' WR corps this weekend. Higgins will now target a potential return to action Dec. 4 against the Jaguars.
Higgins (hamstring) wasn't spotted at practice Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Higgins didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday either, which clouds his status for Sunday's game against the Steelers. If the wideout is unavailable this weekend, Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin would be in line to lead the Bengals' WR corps versus Pittsburgh.
Higgins (hamstring) remained listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice report, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Back-to-back 'DNP' listings set the stage for what (if anything ) Higgins is able to do Friday to be telling with regard to his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Steelers. If he remains sidelined this weekend, Ja'Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and Trenton Irwin would be in line to work as QB Jake Browning's top targets at wide receiver in Week 12.
Higgins (hamstring) isn't practicing Wednesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Coach Zac Taylor told reporters that some of the Bengals injured players were improving and would return to practice Wednesday. Higgins apparently won't be one of them and thus appears in danger of missing a third straight game when the Bengals face the Steelers on Sunday. He's unlikely to put up his typical numbers whenever he gets healthy, as the Bengals are stuck with Jake Browning under center after Joe Burrow suffered a season-ending wrist injury during last Thursday's loss at Baltimore.
