Injury Updates: The Latest on Tee Higgins, Trae Waynes and Xavier Su'a-Filo

Cincinnati could have two key players back on Sunday.

CINCINNATI — Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins practiced on Friday, which bodes well for his chances of playing in Week 3 against the Steelers. 

Higgins was taking part in team drills as the open media portion of practice ended. He was running, cutting and moving without any issues. The 22-year-old suffered a shoulder injury in Week 2 that kept him out of Wednesday and Thursday's practices. 

Cornerback Trae Waynes also practiced for a second-straight day. He missed more than a month with a hamstring injury, but there's at least a chance he makes his Bengals debut on Sunday. 

The same can't be said for Xavier Su'a-Filo, who was out again. The veteran guard is dealing with a knee injury. Look for Jackson Carman to make his first career start on Sunday against the Steelers. The Bengals took him in the second-round (46th overall) in the 2021 NFL Draft. 

With Su'a-Filo out, fourth-round rookie D'Ante Smith will likely be active for the first time this season.
