Bengals wide receiver John Ross returned to the 53-man roster on Tuesday as he was activated off injured reserve.

Ross, a third-year player, spent the last eight games on the Reserve/Injured list due to a sternoclavicular injury suffered in Game 4 at Pittsburgh.

He was cleared to return to practice on November 13. He is the second of two possible players the team may return to the active roster from R/I this season.

Ross recorded 16 catches for 328 yards and three touchdowns in four games for the Bengals (1-11), who look to ride the momentum of their first win when they visit Cleveland (5-7) on Sunday. Now that he's healed, Ross will have a chance to resume such a process in the final month of an otherwise lost season for Cincinnati, which has dearly missed Green. According to ESPN Stats and Info, the Bengals are 23rd in the National Football League with 12 completions of 20 or more air yards; Ross had two of those completions in Cincinnati's season opener at Seattle.
