Tom Pelissero reports the Bengals will likely place Ross on the COVID-19 list while he’s away in Los Angeles. There’s no timetable for his return. 

Ross is entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2020 after Cincinnati declined his fifth-year option. 

Ross, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Bengals back in 2017. He is entering the final year of his four-year rookie contract worth $17.11 million which included a signing bonus of $10.58 million.

In 2019, Ross appeared in eight games for the Bengals and had 28 receptions for 506 yards (18.1 YPC) and three touchdowns.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ross and his family during this time.
