CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Bengals star Ja’Marr Chase did not practice Wednesday due to his back injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Before practice, head coach Zac Taylor said Chase would be a limited participant.

FOX19 NOW’s Jeremy Rauch was at Wednesday’s practice and said Chase was not there for the early part of it.

Around 4:30 p.m., Schefter reported that Chase did not end up practicing.

Chase’s status for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans is unknown.

He injured his lower back during the Bengals’ win on Sunday Night Football against the Buffalo Bills.

Chase went up for a pass and fell hard on the lower back area.

The young playmaker got up but was later seen on the sideline with a wrap, possibly a heating pad, around the same area.

Chase did return to the game.

The Bengals will see how he progresses throughout the week to make a determination if he can suit up against Houston on Sunday.
