Bengals placed WR Antonio Chatman (leg) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Chatman has struggled badly with injuries over the last couple seasons. Even if he was healthy his roster spot was in jeopardy.

The Bengals are calling the lower leg injury WR Antonio Chatman suffered last Friday an ankle "sprain."

It sounds more like a high ankle sprain, as Chatman isn't going to practice for another three weeks. His chances of making the roster aren't looking good.

Bengals receiver Antonio Chatman is out indefinitely with a lower leg injury.

It sounds like a possible high ankle sprain. Chatman was already on the roster bubble and has been oft-injured since he arrived in Cincinnati in 2006.

Bengals placed WR Antonio Chatman on injured reserve with a spinal chord concussion, ending his season.

Chatman has often flashed as a slot receiver and can return punts, but he can't stay healthy. He is signed cheaply through 2009 and should be back.

Bengals WR Antonio Chatman (neck) has been ruled out for Week 12.

With Chatman out, T.J. Houshmandzadeh could add punt returns to his responsibilities for Thursday's game against the Steelers.

The injury to Bengals WR Antonio Chatman is being called a spinal "chord contusion."

Chatman was admitted to the hospital and will be further evaluated early this week. Dr. Anthony Guanciale, a spinal chord specialist in Cincinnati, said Chatman's "recovery is going very well," but it doesn't sound like he'll be a go for Week 12. T.J. Houshmandzadeh could be called on to return punts.

Bengals WR Antonio Chatman was taken off the field in a stretcher Sunday after getting sandwiched between two players and will not return.

Chatman was able to move his legs and arms, so we're thinking this was a precautionary thing. X-rays came back normal. He finished with one catch for 11 yards. Initial reports call the injury a neck or cervical problem.

Bengals WR/PR Antonio Chatman (undisclosed) is considered questionable to play in Week 8.

After a string of solid games in the early going, Chatman appears to finally have fallen behind Chris Henry as the Bengals' third receiver.

Antonio Chatman caught seven passes for 55 yards against the Cowboys in Week 5.

Carson Palmer's go-to receiver on third downs showed quickness and good hands, but he's going to have to hold off Chris Henry as the season goes along.
Sun, Oct 5, 2008 08:18:00 PM

Antonio Chatman caught two passes for 32 yards in Week 4.

Both of Chatman's receptions came in the fourth quarter, as he became QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's favorite target on their only touchdown-scoring drive. Chris Henry won't be returning until Week 6, so Chatman has a minor amount of value for one more week.

Antonio Chatman caught six passes for 70 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Giants.

Chatman earned himself another week as the Bengals' third receiver. He looked electric in the first half, mostly facing single coverage, but the Bengals definitely have a dynamic complement to their two big-catch wideouts. Of course, that doesn't mean he's all of a sudden a good fantasy wideout. Chris Henry is likely to reclaim the job when he returns from suspension in Week 5.

Antonio Chatman will be the Bengals' punt returner to open the year.

He's also the fourth receiver, after T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Chad Johnson, and Jerome Simpson. Fifth wideout Glenn Holt will be the primary kick returner.

Antonio Chatman has the early edge to be Bengals' third receiver, according to the team's website.

Bad news for the team's rookies. "Tone's had a great camp," WRs coach Mike Sheppard says. "When he's been healthy, he's got really nice ability inside and outside and is a nice complement to our big receivers." Chatman will likely also return punts.

Antonio Chatman and Glenn Holt are running as the Bengals' first-team receivers during Organized Team Activities.

NFL Europe vet Marcus Maxwell worked in three-receiver sets. The Bengals need Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh back badly. Chatman and Holt may be first-string for now, but both are squarely on the roster bubble.
