CINCINNATI — The Bengals practiced for the final time this week on Thursday afternoon. They'll be off for the next three days and be back at in action on Monday.
One of the biggest storylines of the preseason has been Ja'Marr Chase's drop issues. The theme continued during the portion of Thursday's practice that was open to the media.
The 21-year-old dropped a pass from Joe Burrow that he should've caught. He was running a curl route on air, so there weren't any defenders around him. Chase got back in line, ran the same route and made a nice grab a few seconds later. Watch video of the catch and clips of the other wide receivers below.
Mike Thomas was back at practice after re-signing with the team on Thursday. The veteran terminated his contract for one day to clear a roster spot for defensive end Wyatt Ray.
The Bengals also claimed cornerback Nick McCloud—both newcomers were at practice on Thursday. Ray changed his number to 93 and McCloud will wear No. 29.
Trae Waynes (hamstring), Khalid Kareem and Pooka Williams (hamstring) were working out on the rehab field on Thursday. The Bengals placed Kareem (shoulder) on the injured reserve list before practice, which means he'll miss a minimum of three games
Cornerback Darius Phillips, center Trey Hill and safety Trayvon Henderson weren't at practice during the part of the session that was open to the media.
The Bengals still have one open spot on the practice squad. It's a sign that more moves are coming with the regular season opener just 10 days away.
