Week 15 Capsule | Patriots at Bengals

If it sounds like Bengals rookie running back Chase Brown, the fifth-rounder everyone is rooting for, has already been around the NFL for a few years, offensive coordinator Brian Callahan agrees: "He's already a pro."
As he waved Tee Higgins over to the scale, Tyler Boyd stepped on with a told-you-so 206 pounds. That puts him in fighting trim for an eighth Bengals season that should leave him among the franchise's heavyweight wide receivers. When it comes to catch percentage, he's the all-time champ.
When slot receiver Tyler Boyd returned to the huddle Tuesday, the Bengals skill players lined up at full strength for the first time since Boyd went down in last season's AFC Championship. And to at least one outside observer, it looked as if they didn't miss a step while displaying up-tempo intensity.
