Boyd recorded one reception on three targets for one yard in Week 17 against the Ravens. He added one rush for 11 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Boyd was weighed down by the Bengals' lack of offensive firepower, as Brandon Allen completed only six passes in the entire game. After racking up 69 receptions for 710 yards across the first ten contests of the season with Joe Burrow (knee) under center, Boyd managed only seven receptions for 116 yards across the final six weeks due to missed games from a concussion and inconsistent quarterback play. Boyd is in the midst of a four-year contract and should be a top playmaker for the Bengals in 2021.

Boyd (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Ravens after practicing fully Friday.
EDGE Analysis
Tee Higgins (hamstring) will also enter the weekend without a designation, setting the stage for the Bengals to have both of their top wideouts available. Boyd, who sat out the team's Week 16 win over the Texans, heads into the season finale with a PPR-friendly 78-840-4 line through 14 games.

Boyd (concussion) is expected to play Sunday against the Ravens, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
EDGE Analysis
The 26-year-old sat out the Week 16 win over the Texans and was limited at practice the past couple of days while making his way through the concussion protocol, but he should be good to go for the season finale. It's unclear if Boyd will avoid an injury designation for the Week 17 contest altogether, but he's expected to avoid the inactive list ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Boyd (concussion) was limited at practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
As was fellow receiver Tee Higgins (hamstring), which sets the stage for Friday's practice to determine whether each of the duo approach Sunday's game against the Ravens with injury designations or cleared to play. If one or both end up out or limited this weekend, Alex Erickson would be in line for added work Week 17.

Boyd (concussion) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Head coach Zac Taylor confirmed Wednesday that Boyd remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, leaving the wideout's status up in the air for Sunday's game against the Ravens, according to Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer. If Boyd manages to upgrade to full activity in practice Friday and gains clearance from an independent neurologist, he'll likely step back into a starting role at receiver in the season finale.

Boyd (concussion) is participating in Wednesday's practice, Tyler Dragon of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
EDGE Analysis
Boyd didn't practice in any capacity before being ruled out for last weekend's win over the Texans, so if he's back to handling even limited reps at practice, it represents a step in the right direction. He'll need full clearance from the five-step concussion protocol in order to suit up Week 17 against the Ravens.

Boyd (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site
EDGE Analysis
With Boyd, who suffered a concussion this past Monday against the Steelers, sidelined, look for Alex Erickson to see added Week 16 snaps behind the team's top healthy wide receivers Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.

Boyd (concussion) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Boyd, who suffered a concussion in Monday's win over the Steelers, will presumably need to practice in some capacity Friday in order to gain clearance for this Sunday's contest against the Texans. If Boyd is out this weekend, Alex Erickson would be in line for added Week 16 snaps behind Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.

Boyd (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
The report notes that Boyd is still in the NFL's concussion protocol, which clouds his status for Sunday's game against the Texans. If he's unable to gain clearance for that contest, Alex Erickson would be in line for added wideout snaps behind Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.

Boyd (concussion) will not return to Monday's game against the Steelers after suffering a concussion, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Boyd suffered the concussion after attempting to make a leaping grab early in the game. He had not recorded a catch before sustaining the injury. In his absence, look for Alex Erickson and Mike Thomas to see an increase in snaps behind Tee Higgins and A.J. Green.
