NFL Week 8 - Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase has been ruled out of Monday's contest against the Cleveland Browns and could soon be placed on injured reserve, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Shefter reports that Chase is currently dealing with a hip injury and is currently seeking advice from medical specialists. Additional reporting from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport notes that Chase will likely not need surgery, and that the injury is definitely not season-ending. Monday's game will be the first game Chase has missed in his career. 

Chase has been the top target for Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow this season, with his 74 targets leading second-place Tee Higgins by 30. Chase currently ranks 15th in DYAR and 30th in DVOA among receivers. In truth, the wide receiver trip of Chase, Higgins, and Tyler Boyd have been excellent this season. Each of them currently rank in the top 15 of DYAR. Boyd ranks fourth among receivers in DYAR and leads all receivers in DVOA.

If it's 4 weeks, that sounds perfect for IR.
