    John Ross has played 16 games since the Bengals made him the ninth overall choice in 2017. He has missed 16 with injuries.The Bengals receiver is out of training camp with a hamstring issue.This much is obvious: The pressure is on Ross to stay healthy and play well.“It’s got to be my best year [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] ,” Ross said, via John Fay of the . “I think every year you should want it to be your best year. The expectations I have for myself for this year are way beyond what I’ve done last year and the year before. It’s definitely a huge year. More so for all of us. I’m not a stat guy or anything like that. I kind of want to bring the city something more than just an All-Pro receiver. It’s more of us building together and doing something big for everyone.”Ross said he is awaiting clearance from Nick Cosgray, the club’s director of rehabilitation and performance.“I don’t think it’s on me,” Ross said. “Like I said, I think it’s beyond me. Because if it was up to me, I would’ve been out here Day One and every single day.”The Bengals need Ross more than they have ever needed him with A.J. Green expected to miss the start of the season after ankle surgery. But he’s got to get back on the field first and then stay on the field. ATLANTA (AP) — Falcons kicker Matt Bryant is expected to miss the next game against the New York Giants after straining his right hamstring making a 57-yard field goal that helped Atlanta snap a three-game losing streak.Coach Dan Quinn said Monday the Falcons are going to bring in another kicker this week to fill in for Bryant. Giorgio Tavecchio, who was with the team at the end of the preseason [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , is among the candidates.Tavecchio kicked last season for the Oakland Raiders.He made 16 of 21 field goals, including three from 50 yards or longer, and all but one extra point.The 43-year-old Bryant is one of Atlanta’s most reliable offensive weapons. He has connected on all nine of his field goal attempts this season, including three from at least 50 yards.Bryant’s longest kick of the season helped clinch a 34-29 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. But he immediately grabbed his hamstring, hobbled off the field and headed straight to the locker room.The Falcons (2-4) face the New York Giants (1-5) next Monday night. Atlanta is off the following week, which would give Bryant extra time to recover before the Nov. 4 game at Washington.Coach Dan Quinn showed his confidence in Bryant when he decided to go for the long field goal with 1:10 remaining against the Bucs. With the Falcons clinging to a two-point lead, a miss would’ve given Tampa Bay excellent field position to drive for a winning field goal.But Bryant’s kick barely cleared the crossbar [You are not allowed to view links.

Not just the toughest kicker, but one of the toughest players.”His teammates certainly realize how important he is to the team’s success.“He’s an amazing player,” receiver Julio Jones said. “Every kick is the same. His preparation every game is the same.”In other injury news, running back Devonta Freeman will likely miss at least one more game, according to Quinn. He didn’t play against the Bucs because of a groin injury and earlier missed three straight games with a bruised knee.This is the second straight injury plagued year for Freeman, a two-time Pro Bowl selection and one of the NFL’s highest-paid running backs.Quinn isn’t sure about the status of receivers Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (hip) [You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login] , both of whom had to leave Sunday’s game. The coach said an extra day of recovery before facing New York in prime time could make a difference between playing and sitting.“In the football world, a whole day is a big deal,” Quinn said.The Falcons also have been without defensive tackle Grady Jarrett (ankle) the past two games. Quinn said he’ll know more about Jarrett’s status when the Falcons resume practicing on Thursday after taking two days off.It’s been a tough season physically for Atlanta, which already lost safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen and offensive guard Andy Levitre to season-ending injuries. Linebacker Deion Jones is on injured reserve with a foot problem, but the Falcons are hopeful he can return after sitting out the required eight games.
