Joe Burrow expects Ja'Marr Chase to play after Bengals WR practices

Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase returned to practice Wednesday ahead of his potential return to the field Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Chase practiced for the first time since a hip injury forced the wideout to miss three games. Chase participated in drills during the portion of practice open to the media, catching a variety of passes from quarterback Joe Burrow.

Burrow said Chase ran Tuesday and is on track to play this weekend.

"We expect him to play," Burrow said. "I know he ran yesterday and he felt good. So we'll see how it goes the rest of the week."

Chase hasn't played since the Bengals' Week 7 win over the Atlanta Falcons, when he had eight catches for 130 yards and two touchdowns. At the time, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Chase could be out four to six weeks. Sunday would mark five weeks since Chase last played.

Bengals coach Zac Taylor was a bit more clandestine than his quarterback about Chase's prognosis. Taylor said he hadn't seen Chase practice since the injury and described his availability as day-to-day.

Still, Taylor conceded that Chase's rehabilitation process has gone well.

"He's done all the things we've asked him to do," Taylor said Wednesday. "He has done a great job with the trainers in there. Everything has been positive to this point."
